Sinopse

From the author of BEATRICE The Cadbury Heiress Who Gave Away Her Fortune comes a compelling story inspired by women at Cadbury during The Great War. One war. Three women. 1000 knitted vests. After marrying Bill, housewife Jessie Paignton thought she’d left the Cadbury chocolate factory at Bournville for good. But money problems force her to return to work to make ends meet. Before long, however, her marriage is tested to breaking point. Long-serving employee Leonora Lime secretly longs for the forewoman’s job. When war starts in 1914, she seizes the chance to display her leadership qualities by rallying the girls to pack ‘Comforts’ for the soldiers. But her plan to impress the Cadbury directors unexpectedly – and tragically – backfires. Meanwhile, vivacious Cadbury girl Mary Morris doesn’t have a care in the world – or so it seems. Despite trying to protect her beloved Daniel, he ends up in grave danger. Mary enlists the help of a Friends Ambulance Unit volunteer. But will it be enough to save Daniel? A heartwarming yet gritty tale of love, work and friendship set in Birmingham’s best-loved chocolate factory.
