Three Great Novels 2 : "The Corner House Girls", "Kiss the Girls Goodbye", "PS I Love You"
Lilian Harry is a much-loved author of women's fiction. Her novels are vivid sagas, capturing both the harshness and warmth of the lives of ordinary people during the Second World War. Such is her popularity that she regularly appears on the Sunday Times Bestseller List. This omnibus contains three linked novels: THE CORNER HOUSE GIRLS, KISS THE GIRLS GOODBYE and PS I LOVE YOU. It's 1937 and, when Jo and Phyl decide to become Lyons Corner House waitresses, or 'Nippies' as they are known, they have no idea how their lives are about to change. Uprooted from family life in Woolwich to digs in London, they swap their old overalls for the smart uniforms of the Corner House girls. Despite the hard work, they settle in easily and before long there are boyfriends, lovers and fiances, friendship and romance. But all that is to change with the outbreak of war. Despite putting on cheerful faces for the customers, the war is taking its toll on all the waitresses: who anxiously wait for their loved ones to return.
