The Post Office Girls (Hodder) is the first book in a lively and uplifting WWI historical saga series by Kirsten Hesketh.
On Beth Healey's eighteenth birthday, she hopes that she will be able to forget the ghastly war and celebrate. No longer able to stand working in her parents' village shop while others are doing their bit, Beth applies to join the Army Post Office's new Home Depot on the Regent's Park. But just as she begins to feel that her life has finally begun, everything starts falling apart, with devastating consequences for Beth and perhaps even the outcome of the war itself. Can Beth and her new friends keep it all together and find happiness at last?
