the truth when the truth is finally revealed about Maisie s appearance, I was pleasantly surprised The author has achieved something barely seen in saga novels The novel also jumps back in time to 1913, it covers the era of Pearl s pregnancy and what lead her to be the way she is today I found Pearl s history fascinating There is a scene where she gets off the train, at Kings Cross station and in the background hears the suffragettes You become instantly aware how few rights women held in 1913 There is cause for celebration when Joe proposes to Bel But will this be a wedding to remember for the right reasons Gloria is struggling to adapt to life as an older mum Which is not made any easier by her brute of a soon to be ex husband Vinnie He is violent, intimidating and demanding His temper is constantly simmering behind the scenes and I really feared for Gloria s and Hope s safety If he wanted to see his bairn, he damn well was going to No one was going to stop him especially not a woman He was in control Always had been Not her Vinnie Thankfully the impending nuptials offers some much needed relief from the darker scenes But this saga has it all A secret from the past, an inquisitive detective and a scheming wife but most of all it carries a message of love and hope I turned the final page with a smile on my face and hope for my girls in their futures I cannot wait to

so I knew that I would love this episode of the saga.This review is going to be slightly different to my usual reviews as I am going to include some of my lovely Mam s thoughts too We both love this series In fact, when Secrets Of The Shipyard Girls popped through the letterbox I had to fight my mother over who got to read it first My Mam won Beaten by a pensioner Ohhh the shame Anyway I digress Back to the review.I don t want to type too much about the storylines as I have an unintentional but nasty habit of giving far too many spoilers about books I have enjoyed To say that I enjoyed Secrets Of The Shipyard Girls is something of an understatement This instalment of the saga sees Gloria settling into a new routine with her new baby called Hope Gloria is smitten with Hope However, at the same time Gloria is frantic with worry about the fate of Hope s father, Jack The ship that Jack was on was torpedoed and there has been no news of Jack Gloria ends up leaning on the girls at the shipyard for support The head welder Rosie has turned her back on the possibility of a future with her boyfriend Peter to ensure that her double life remains hidden As well as working in the shipyards, Rosie also part owns a bordello in Sunderland This would not sit well with Peter as he is a policeman However, Peter is unaware of this at the moment and he can t understand why Rosie has turned him down Peter becomes a bit like a dog with a bone in that he knows that there isto the story than meets the eye and he is determined to find out just what it is that she is hiding There is a glimmer of hope for Polly and her family when Bel Polly s sister in law and Joe Polly s brother get together and fall in love Bel was married to Polly s other brother, who was sadly killed in action However, a scandalous revelation threatens to pull them all apart Where is Jack and is he alive Will Gloria get her much longed for happy ever after with the man she loves or will her abusive former husband Vinny resurface Will Peter discover just what it is that Rosie is keeping from him Will it impact on their happy ever after What is the scandalous revelation that threatens to upset the apple cart Well for the answers to those questions andyou are just going to have to read the book for yourselves to find out because I am not going to tell you.I can honestly say that with the exceptions of Helen, Miriam and Vinnie there was not one character that I didn t take to from the start I really felt for Gloria because she had been in an abusive relationship with Vinnie and she had been on the receiving end of his fists onthan one occasion She finally managed to throw him out, with a little help from some friends Way back in the day Gloria and Jack had been rather sweet on each other They reunited and it wasn t long before Gloria realised that she was pregnant I think that at the back of her mind, there is a tiny hope that she, Jack and baby Hope will become a family The minute that Gloria thinks that she has a chance of future happiness things change with the disappearance of Jack Added to this, she and the rest of the girls have to put up with Jack s wife Miriam and his daughter Helen Both women have a chip well ok a whole bag of chips on their shoulders and they delight in treating the shipyard girls worse than muck I really felt for Rosie too She only worked in the bordello in the first place to ensure that she could get enough money to pay for the education of her sister It s only Rosie and her sister against the world, as her parents were killed in an accident It emerges that Rosie s uncle had abused her since she was a child and Rosie was determined that her sister wasn t going to suffer the same way Happily Uncle Raymond went for a swim in the River Wear and he didn t emerge alive I eventually took to Bel but it wasn t easy I get that Bel had been grieving the loss of her husband in a previous book but that didn t give her the right to treat others like muck She seemed to forget that the adorable Agnes was grieving the loss of one of her sons and that Polly was grieving the loss of her brother Bel was not the only one to have lost somebody Happily by the time of this book, Bel has perked up somewhat There is a part of her that will always grieve for her husband and have her wondering about the future that they should have had but she realises that she needs to move on, which she does do when she falls in love with Joe, who was badly injured during the war Romance blossoms between the pair but there is a grey cloud on the horizon and a shock revelation threatens their happiness When I read the synopsis of the book, I couldn t help but think that Bel s mother Pearl would have something to do with the revelation Pearl is a bit of a mystery She is a drunkard, who smokes like a chimney and occasionally treats Bel worse than muck I couldn t help but think that there wasto her than met the eye Pearl wasn t born that way and I couldn t help but think that she had experienced trauma when she was young and this trauma had shaped her into the person that she had become Secrets Of The Shipyard Girls is fantastically and beautifully written Both my Mother and I were gripped by the tale from the very first word on the very first page and we weren t released from the book s grip until the last word on the last page The pages were turning so quickly that it was almost as if they were turning themselves and before we knew it we had finished the book, which we were so disappointed about We were happy that we knew just how this episode of the saga ended but because we were enjoying the book so much, we wanted the story to continue The author clearly cares about her characters and this shines through in the quality of her writing Her descriptions of the various characters were so vivid that the characters seemed to come to life and the characters seemed real By the end of the book, we both felt as though the characters, well with the odd exception, were friends You could say that we both lived the story and we both felt like invisible bystanders to the action that was taking place all around us In particular, we also loved the setting of Sunderland, which was always will be to me and Mam still part of County Durham back in the day As my late Dad used to say County Durham stretched from the River Tees up to the River Tyne, it always had and it always will do Dad also used to say that there was never any of that Tyne Wear nonsense in his day Those were his words not mine I ve also researched my family tree and I discovered that I had probably still do have family from Sunderland Sadly I never got to meet the relatives I discovered but reading this book somehow made me feel closer to them I know that that might sound daft to some people but it makes sense to me Secrets Of The Shipyard Girls made me want to cry, to shout, to laugh, to celebrate and to fight all in equal measure.In short and if you haven t already guessed, we absolutely loved, loved, loved reading Secrets Of The Shipyard Girls and I can t wait to read the next instalment of the saga Fortunately I don t have too long to wait because Shipyard Girls In Love is due for release on 22nd March 2018 I have heard that Nancy Revell has been described as being the new Catherine Cookson but in our eyes, Nancy Revell is a far better author Both my Mam and myself are unable to get into Catherine Cookson s books but we devour Nancy Revell s in no time at all We only wish that she would write quicker I would recommend this series to anybody and particularly to history nerds like myself We jointly award this book 5 out of 5 but we would have awarded it farstars if we could have because we really loved Secrets Of The Shipyard Girls that much An excellent follow on from the shipyard girls,the characters are amazing and look out for one another and have fun during hard times To read of their lives and
