Synopsis

Wartime Friends is a tale of unbreakable bonds in times of strife, by bestselling author Margaret Dickinson.

As the storm clouds of war gather over Britain, two brave, young women will discover the value of true friendship as they deal with troubles of their own while the lives of those they love are put at risk.


It is 1940’s coastal Lincolnshire and Carolyn Holmes is keen to do what she can for the war effort. Raised on the family farm, she battles with her mother, Lilian, to further her education although nothing is too good for her brother, Tom.
Phyllis Carter, a bitter widow from the Great War, lives close by with her son, Peter, who works on the farm. When Peter decides to volunteer, a distraught Phyllis blames Carolyn who leaves to join the ATS where she meets Beryl Morley who will become a lifelong friend. Carolyn and Beryl are posted to Beaumanor Hall in Leicestershire as ‘listeners’, the most difficult of signals intelligence gathering.

As the war unfolds and their work becomes even more vital, Carolyn and Beryl’s friendship deepens and in the dangerous times that follow, they support each other through some of the darkest days they will ever know.
