Corner House Girls
The story begins at the outset of the war and revolves around the lives of six Lyon's Corner House Waitresses or 'Nippies' as they are known for their speedy service. Each girl has a different personality, different family background and different experience of London in the Blitz. There are happy homes and less happy ones; there are brothers and lovers in the forces; there are children evacuated to the countryside and there are relationships that end in romance and tragedy. The Corner House with its high turnover of customers and interesting variety of staff provides the perfect backdrop for this heart-warming tale of war, love and loss, and Lilian Harry's vivid characters bring to life this fascinating period in British history.

About Lilian Harry
Some of Lilian Harry's earliest memories are of nights spent in a Portsmouth air-raid shelter, listening to the drone of enemy aircraft. But they are also of warm family life continuing in spite of the fears and anxieties of the time. Lilian Harry has written for Mills and Boon and for Headline, before turning to the breakout Street At War series.
