PS I Love You
For the Nippies, the girls who work at Lyons Corner House at Marble Arch, rationing, air-raids and blackouts mean life is no longer as carefree as it used to be. But new pain and pleasure lie in wait as each decides what effort she can make towards victory. Jo yearns for Nick, but wonders if they will ever be married. Hideously burned when he is shot down, Nick needs the still-experimental procedure of plastic surgery. Jo loses herself in her new life as a 'lumberjill', working among women hewing timber for the war effort. Meantime, Phyl has been selected, along with some other trusted Nippies, for secret work. Far from family and friends, she works with munitions and tries to forget her desire to be a Wren. Her husband is far away but she never loses faith that one day they will be reunited...A stirring tale of love and sacrifice, following the wartime fortunes of our favourite characters from CORNER HOUSE GIRLS and KISS THE GIRLS GOODBYE.

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. She is married and lives in Devon.
