From Annie Murray, the bestselling author of Chocolate Girls, The Bells of Bournville Green and Secrets of the Chocolate Girls, Wartime for the Chocolate Girls is a gritty family saga about love, war and chocolate . . .

April 1941.

Almost losing her life in a bomb blast while serving in the Women’s Volunteer Service has made Ann Gilby take stock of what’s really important – her family.

With daughter Sheila back home, and Joy still working munitions at the Cadbury factory and engaged to her soldier sweetheart, home life feels more settled too. Ann has even come to an uneasy truce with her husband, Len, despite her recent discovery of his infidelity and the fact that he has fathered a child with another woman.

But what Ann has not reckoned with is Marianne, Len’s other woman, turning up on her doorstep – a woman with a mysterious past.

Only Ann has secrets of her own and one day soon she knows she will have to tell her youngest child, Martin, who his father really is . . .

Publisher Review

A heart-warming tale of friendship and family. * My Weekly * A heartwarming tale of secrets and lies, mystery and drama . . . the fourth book in her tasty Chocolate Girls series . . . Murray, whose home was in Birmingham when she began her writing career, invests hours of local research and her own powerful gift of imagination into her action-packed, family-based stories, and her genuine affection for the city and its people always shines through. And this warmhearted and gritty chapter for the Chocolate Girls packs in all those ingredients - relationships, romance, the uncertainties of wartime and human compassion - which have made this series such a delicious treat for all saga fans. * Lancashire Post *
