Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls by Lizzie Lane

I’m delighted to be part of the tour today for this wonderful book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Bridget Milligan has donned a uniform and joined the nursing services where she becomes intrigued with the miracles of modern medicine. She’s also torn between family loyalty, her new career and Lyndon O’Neill, the love of her life. Is it too impossible to hope that everything will come out right in the end?
Phyllis Harvey is still serving in Malta where she sees the casualties of war first hand. Finally it seems like Phyllis is blessed with true in love, but fate can sometimes be a rocky road and nothing is that certain.
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.
There are tears and laughter, goodbyes and new arrivals along with the hope that new beginnings are not far over the horizon.

My Review –

It was just wonderful to be back with the Tobacco Girls again! This time there have been many changes and the “3 Ms” are scattered all over the world.

I really enjoyed reading about Bridget’s journey into nursing. She’s on a steep learning curve, but she has a natural flair for it. It’s a tough time to be nursing, with many casualties of war.

Phyllis has been through so much, and she’s still in Malta, where it’s quite high risk, but I found it fascinating reading about her job, and I loved the descriptions of the beautiful area. There are still challenges ahead for her, but she’s so brave, a character to be admired.

Maisie is such a strong character, and I love the way she fights for what she believes in, and how she manages to cope on her own.

Overall, I found that this is one of those books that are made to savour. As I neared the end, I just didn’t want it to finish, and I can’t wait for the next one.

For anyone who loves historical fiction, this is one of the best. I’d really recommend it, and the whole series so far. Engaging, often heart-breaking, but just so enjoyable to read, really gorgeous.

My Rating –
