Heaven & Hell for the Tabacco Girls
ALL NEW from the Tobacco Girls BRISTOL 1943 and life for the Tobacco Girls isn’t getting any easier...
Maisie Miles is left holding the home front at the tobacco factory but with the sudden death of her grandmother finds herself once more alone in the world. However, thanks to a substantial inheritance, she is able to extend a helping hand to a friend in desperate need.
Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls by Lizzie Lane is the fourth novel in The Tobacco Girls series. While Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls
can be read as a standalone, I believe it is best to read the series in
order. It will allow you to have the
complete background on the characters and follow their journey from the
beginning of the war. It is the spring of 1943 in Bristol. The war has been going on for years and
rationing is taking its toll. I thought Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls was well-written with developed characters. The characters are realistic and suited the
time period. The author captured the era
with the war activities, clothing, rationing, language, and the war news. Everyone wants to do their bit. We get to meet a couple of new people who
enter the ladies’ lives. I like how all
different races and nationalities are portrayed in this story. The war allowed our Bristol ladies to meet
people from other countries right in their hometown. Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls is an
emotional story. There is grief, love,
joy, anger, and sadness in this dramatic tale.
We get to learn more about the ladies and their families. Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls is told
from multiple points-of-view. I found it
a little difficult in the beginning, but I found it easier as I got further
into the story. There is some violence in the story that might be a trigger for
some people plus there is bigotry (just to let you know). The story ends leaving me wondering what will
happen next with The Tobacco Girls. Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls is a dramatic tale with nosy neighbors, tons of
tea, fashion rationing, flamboyant flyboys, medical miracles, nimble nuptials,
and daring dames.
