What a wonderful story. Set during WW1 this is the 6th book in the series which follows the lives of the Harpers Emporium girls through their happy times, family times and sad times and emotional times. This is a time when the women have taken up jobs and had to get used to a life without their husbands. Will this change when their menfolk return? Will they be ravaged by the War? How will this change their lives?

The female characters are superbly written with a beautifully caring side, all supporting each other through good times and bad. I loved Sally and her strength. She just carries on and keeps her stiff upper lip through thick and thin.

Victory Bells is a compassionately written story that draws you in to the lives of these strong and beautiful women. I would highly recommend this one to all who loves a book set during WW1, with a growing intensity and all the worries that come even with Victory in sight, will all be happy ever after for these exceptional women?
