9780099574897: The Shopkeeper's Daughter

She was determined to succeed in business and build a life for herself and her family. The compelling new Second World War novel from the author of The Girls in Blue.
     June 1944. Eighteen-year-old Ginnie Travis works in her father's furniture shop in the suburbs of East London when the continued bombing raids and her sister's untimely pregnancy force the two girls to go and stay with their aunt in Shropshire.

     Here Ginnie falls in love with an American, Lieutenant Nick Miller, stationed nearby. But she discovers Nick has a fiancée back home and a heart-broken Ginnie ends the relationship. Then news of their father's death in an air raid reaches them. Hurrying back to London, Ginnie finds herself in sole charge of the shop.

     With the family left almost penniless and Shirley and her child to provide for, Ginnie is responsible for them all. And when the shop comes under threat, she is even more determined to make it succeed and build a life for herself and her family.

From the Back Cover:

In World War II–torn England, a young woman must fight to keep her family together, whatever the cost.

Ginnie Travis has been working in her father's shop for the past five years, trying to keep it afloat. When scandal rocks her family just as relentless Nazi raids threaten their very lives, Ginnie and her sister are forced to flee and stay with their aunt in the North of England. The last thing she expects to find in the quiet countryside is love, especially with an American soldier. A soldier who has secrets of his own.

Tragedy strikes, the horror of war rages on, and Ginnie will do whatever she must to protect everything she holds dear.
