    I am a huge fan of Nancy Revell and I simply adore reading The Shipyard Girls series I im patiently wait for each new book to come out and I read it a matter of hours after I get my hands on a copy So imagine my excitement when I was asked if I would like to take part in the blog tour for Victory For The Shipyard Girls On second thoughts, it would be better for you not to imagine it as the excited dance wasn t pretty but it was only witnessed by my two Labradors Anyway I digress so bac I am a huge fan of Nancy Revell and I simply adore reading The Shipyard Girls series I im patiently wait for each new book to come out and I read it a matter of hours after I get my hands on a copy So imagine my excitement when I was asked if I would like to take part in the blog tour for Victory For The Shipyard Girls On second thoughts, it would be better for you not to imagine it as the excited dance wasn t pretty but it was only witnessed by my two Labradors Anyway I digress so back to the point I eagerly opened the front cover of Victory For The Shipyard Girls and dived straight in Oh my giddy aunt it was one hell of a read I absolutely, totally and utterly loved, no make that adored reading Victory For The Shipyard Girls butabout that in a bit.The characters in The Shipyard Girls are certainly a mixed bunch Some of the characters I absolutely loved and some of the characters I could honestly hit a few dozen times with a wet flip flop I ll try not to give too much away I absolutely love the characters of Gloria, Rosie, Polly and the rest of the shipyard girl gang I also love the characters of Agnes and Bel Gloria is a woman, who is a single mother She was the childhood sweetheart of Jack Crawford, whose daughter Helen is the current manager of the shipyard Jack was taken away from Gloria by the delightful note the sarcasm Miriam butabout the old witch a bit later Gloria married Vinnie and they had two sons, who have grown up Vinnie used Gloria as a punch bag and he abused her mentally, physically and financially Thankfully by the time this book starts, Vinnie is out of the picture I am keeping my fingers crossed that he will soon be taking a very long walk off Roker Pier Gloria and Jack have renewed their relationship and baby Hope is the result Hope is a much loved and much cared for baby However, thanks to Miriam s meddling, Jack has been sent up to Glasgow and Gloria is on her own again I am keeping my fingers, toes and my dogs are keeping their paws crossed that Jack comes back to set up home with Gloria and the sooner the better Rosie is another main focus of the storylines in this book Rosie is the supervisor of the Shipyard Girls but that isn t her only job Rosie has a part share in a bordello and for many years she worked there to provide for her and her sister Rosie was determined that her sister should have an education and she should remain out of the clutches of their Uncle who had wandering hands Rosie has been in a relationship with Peter, who happens to be a policeman His job doesn t sit well with her involvement at the bordello Their relationship hasn t gone down well in certain quarters and for a time Rosie ended things with Peter However, the start of this book sees a happy event occurring but their happiness is soon interrupted by a change of duties for Peter I don t want to type too muchabout exactly what happens to either lady as I don t want to spoil the book for other readers Now as for the characters I cannot stand and would happily slap a few dozen times with a wet fish The main object of my fury is the delightful Miriam She is a spiteful, vindictive, two faced, manipulative witch And that s me being polite She doesn t want Jack but equally she doesn t want Gloria to have him Deep down Miriam has always known that Jack has never loved her The only way she could get Jack to marry her was to trick him, which is diabolical She even stoops so low as to manipulate her own daughter Helen, which is bang out of order and for no other reason than to get one up on somebody Helen does start to open her eyes to what sort of a woman Miriam is Miriam is one of those people, who thinks of herself first, second and third I am so hoping that somewhere along the line, Miriam is going to get what is coming to her Karma is on its way to Miriam Crawford and hopefully I will be able to watch her downfall In the previous books of the series, Helen was another character who I disliked However my opinion of Helen did start to change as Victory For The Shipyard Girls went on In fact I felt very sorry for her by the end of the book.Blimey oh riley Victory For The Shipyard Girls is brilliantly written The author s writing style is such that you can t fail to be drawn into the story and before too long you find that you can t stop reading because you care so much about what happens to the characters At least that is what happened to me at any rate TheI read, theI got into the story and the longer I had to keep on reading For me Victory For The Shipyard Girls really is a CPID can t put it down book My intention was to ration how much I read in one session but I was enjoying the book so much that my intention went out of the window and I kept on reading Before I knew what was happening I had finished the book which I had mixed feelings about Don t get me wrong I was pleased to finish the book because at least I knew how this instalment ended but I was disappointed to finish because I was enjoying the book so much that I just wanted the book to continue I found that the characters were so realistically written that they seemed to come alive and they seemed real to me I know, I know Victory For The Shipyard Girls is a work of fiction but because I so enjoyed this book, the storylines and the characters came alive If I closed my eyes, I could imagine the places, the storylines and the characters playing out in my head I am even picturing who should play which character when the series is adapted for television I can t believe that it hasn t been snapped up for development already.Oh my giddy aunt, Victory For The Shipyard Girls was one heck of an emotional rollercoaster of a read Whilst I was reading this book there were times when I felt myself wanting to cheer, wanting to shout and moments where I found myself feeling ever so angry Victory For The Shipyard Girls has a bit of everything there s drama, there s love, there s loss, there s hope, there s the occasional dash of humour and above all Victory For The Shipyard Girls is a book about how women help each other out when the chips are down or when scandal hits.I have to be honest and say that I adored where the series is set but then I am biased I currently live in the North East and to me it s the best area of the country The area is brimming with stories of how women overcame the toughest of times The Shipyard Girls is set in Sunderland, County Durham, which is a place very close to my heart At the time this book is set, Sunderland was classed as being in County Durham and to borrow a phrase from my late father Sunderland always was and always will be in County Durham There was never any of this Tyne Wear rubbish I never knew my grandparents and reading books such as these somehow makes me feel closer to them, as they were from up that way I loved the regional dialect and I even found myself repeating some of the dialogue between the characters in a Mackem accent A Mackem is a native of Sunderland.In short, it s fair to say that I adored reading Victory For The Shipyard Girls and it is another fabulous instalment of the series The Shipyard Girls series just keeps getting better and better As I indicated above, I can t believe that The Shipyard Girls has not yet been picked up for television adaptation It would be perfect for adaptation and has the potential to be just as popular, if notso, than Call The Midwife I would definitely recommend this author and her books to other readers The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a massive and well deserved 5 out of 5

    Let me just start by saying that so far, this has been my series of the year I have read all the books within the series this year and they just keep getting better and better In the last novel, the author left us on a HUGE cliff hanger and I am not going to lie, she has done it again However, we only have until 21st March 2019 to wait, to read Courage Of The Shipyard Girls I simply cannot wait The novel opens shortly after a series of revelations about all the shipyard girls which left Let me just start by saying that so far, this has been my series of the year I have read all the books within the series this year and they just keep getting better and better In the last novel, the author left us on a HUGE cliff hanger and I am not going to lie, she has done it again However, we only have until 21st March 2019 to wait, to read Courage Of The Shipyard Girls I simply cannot wait The novel opens shortly after a series of revelations about all the shipyard girls which left us reeling With Gloria now struggling to hold onto a mountain of secrets and Jack transferred to The Clyde It appears there will be NO happy ending for Gloria and Jack, even after all these years Helen is the new shipyard manager, at first, she relishes the role over the other women But eventually the guilt over role in her father s downfall starts to eat away at her Which leaves her blinded to the intentions of others Ultimately, she will be the one to pay the price Miriam Helen s mother and Jack s wife continues with her vile and twisted threats that impact them all and enjoying lauding this over Gloria It is a weight even Gloria finds too tough to bare Maisie and Bel both continue in their quests to learnabout their father s Which leads to Pearl being forced to hide her darkest secrets We also begin to understandandabout Pearl with each new novel We finally can come to some understanding of how she struggled to mother her own daughters As stated above, the novel ends on another cliff hanger ending I think the author has finally found her niche with drawing the readers in and leaving them desperate for the next in the series A superb saga series 5

    Victory for the Shipyard Girls is the fifth instalment in the Shipyard Girls series Although I have not read any of the previous books, I completely fell in love with this series and will be sure to pick up the first four parts as well Each book can easily be read as a standalone, but I really want to find out how certain events in the past lead to where the characters are now.I enjoyed the author s writing style very much She had me captivated from pretty much the first page onwards The pac Victory for the Shipyard Girls is the fifth instalment in the Shipyard Girls series Although I have not read any of the previous books, I completely fell in love with this series and will be sure to pick up the first four parts as well Each book can easily be read as a standalone, but I really want to find out how certain events in the past lead to where the characters are now.I enjoyed the author s writing style very much She had me captivated from pretty much the first page onwards The pace of the book is brilliant and fast, which I find is not always the case with books that are part of a whole series In my experience they can become somewhat boring and slow paced about halfway through, but this is definitely not the case for the Shipyard Girls It probably helps that apart from our three main characters there is an endless list of supporting characters that each come with their own secrets and problems The storyline of Victory for the Shipyard Girls is extremely interesting and easy to follow All three of the main characters are very different from another, yet it is their friendship and support in their current situation that binds them all together I am not surprised that Nancy Revell is a Sunday Times Bestselling Author Victory for the Shipyward Girls is an extremely captivating read and I cannot wait for the next instalment in this series

uncertain future for all the women involved in what is turning out to be an engrossing series Centred around a group of women working in one of the Sunderland shipyards during World War Two each book has been going from strength to strength This story sees the continuation and development of many previous storylines which have keenly held my interest right from when we were first introduced to an incredible bunch of women who keep going no matter what life throws at them Not only have they to contend with the constant worry and danger that the war brings with it but also they have many personal problems to cope with on a daily basis right there in their homes and their place of work.The story picks up directly from where we last left the women but for those new to the series I love how the author uses a conversation between two characters as a means of bringing new readers right up to date with all the goings on and the endless trials and tribulations that seem to present themselves at every corner Just as one hurdle is overcome along comes another to throw things way off balance and upset the apple cart This means of bringing us up to date also serves as a brief refresher for those who have journeyed with the girls since the very beginning.What I love most about this series is that there are real gritty storylines that the reader can easily lose themselves in, some of which have been brewing since the start and others are new little plots slowly starting to make themselves known The author never shies away from the harsh realities of the time and shows that during a time of such unrest, upheaval and heartache that everyone left at home had to keep enduring and keep fighting Just because there was a war on didn t mean everything ground to a halt now that thousands of men were abroad fighting No the women stepped into the breach and took it upon themselves to keep everything going in the most testing and nerve racking of times.There was less focus this time on the actual jobs the women did with the ships and I was glad of this, as we had had plenty of previous descriptions of this, and now thewe progress through the series we can focus on specific characters and all the sneakiness and heartache that is ongoing Several times over I have changed my opinions of certain characters and that s thanks to the way Nancy Revell writes One minute she has you feeling sympathy for someone and the next I detest them and their actions because of the consequences and fallout that occurs in relation to characters I am deeply invested in and want nothing but good things to happen for There are always so many surprises and twists and turns thrown which crop up when you least expect it and they keep the story flowing wonderfully as you rapidly turn the pages.So what of this group of women embracing a very much male dominated world Well of course they go to work every day and contribute in building and mending ships for the war effort and although the fighting may be across the sea there is still plenty going on in Sunderland that keeps them on their toes Gloria had a chance at happiness but it was so cruelly snatched from her grasp, that s all thanks to Miriam who is married to Jack Miriam s family have run the shipyard for years with her daughter Helen now in charge Miriam is a character I really hate and I have no problems in using that word, she is manipulative and is playing such a game that will ruin and destroy people s lives She is an expert at blackmail and has such ammunition that at the moment she is keeping close to her chest but Gloria knows if Miriam reveals all her secrets that her friends lives will be ruins.Gloria couldn t cope with the guilt if this happens and if that meant sacrificing her chance to be with Jack so be it Gloria is so selfless, always putting others before herself Her own needs get pushed to the side and although she desperately wants to listen to her heart and do the best for baby Hope she looks at the bigger picture and takes all things into consideration before making an informed choice I love Gloria as a character she is loyal steadfast and fearless and I am desperately hoping that in future books some sort of resolution can be found for her situation.Helen is a character I warm to one minute and then by the next chapter she does something which leaves me very confused and also upset because her actions always have an affect on others In this book we really got inside her head and although to the women who work for her at the shipyard she appears to be made of steel and they stay clear of her, in a way beneath it all life is not that great for Helen She is confused, alone and very much burdened She feels abandoned by her father but really his absence is due to her mother s scheming but Helen does not realise this There is a lot going on underneath Helen s eyes but she can t see it because she is lost in her own world of sadness She just wants to feel, special, loved and cherished and I think a lot of her actions in this story were a cry for help and she made rash decisions If she had been thinking straight I doubt she would have gotten involved in the tangled mess she found herself in Helen needs a solid form of love in her life a relationship where she can turn her anger, jealousy and bitterness into something positive and life affirming She certainly needed to change her character and demeanour and in a way grow up and face things head on I still foresee plenty for her to deal with in future books.Naturally nice things do happen to the women in this book and I loved how Rosie and Gloria began to work together to help their friends out Each girl in the group has things to hide, especially things that may be going on at home, and thanks to Miriam both Gloria and Rosie are well aware of these I thought it was subtly slipped in how the two joined forces and thought of creative and helpful ways to overcome these problems Little seeds were sown and then they sat back and over time we ll see them start to bloom I do feel sorry for Rosie though that having such a positive event right at the beginning of the book with her marriage to Peter and the time she spent with him lasting so fleeting in that he has now embarked upon secret war work in France I feel every bit of her longing for his safe return I think as a character she has come such a long way since book one She isopen and willing to accept help and advice and now she is returning the favour whenever she can One thing I definitely want to knowabout is what exactly is going on with her sister at boarding school There have been teasing hints over the last several books and I feel we need to get to know this girl as she hasn t made an appearance to date.There are several storylines all running alongside each other, although they are not difficult to keep track of, and perhaps the most intriguing of all this time was that of Bel and her mother Pearl Over the course of the last two books I feel this aspect of the storyline although it started off as a slow burner it suddenly sprung to life here and at one point I was left open mouthed at what was revealed It all gels so well together but then we as the reader are aware of the bigger picture that the majority of the characters are oblivious too We know that if certain things get out in the open then the cat is well and truly set amongst the pigeons and the repercussions will be far reaching and lead to devastating consequences and trauma, hurt and horror for many.My fifth visit to the shipyard girls was every bit as enjoyable as the previous four books It s a book where you pick it up and before you know it you find yourself half way through so lost do you become in all the goings on Each character brings different assets to the story and they all bare their heart on their sleeve and in doing so I have come to really enjoy this series By the end I am always left wantingand hate having to say goodbye for a while Victory for the Shipyard Girls certainly left us dangling on tender hooks with scenes that could lead you to draw any number of conclusions Sadly I ll have to wait until March 2019 when Courage of the Shipyard Girls will be published but if you haven t previously read of this special group of women I suggest do so
