Perfect for fans Rosie Clarke and Annie Groves, comes a novel that will delight everyone that loved Call the Midwife and Foyle's War. The first in a fabulous new series from the creator of ITV smash-hit Home Fires. In Britain's darkest hour, an extraordinary community of women strives to protect the Home Front. When an enemy plane crashes into the village, every one of their lives will change for ever . . . Frances Barden, Chair of Great Paxford's Women's Institue, feels it's her role to lead the community. But as her factory is shut down and her husband's secret child arrives at her door, she finds she'll need the support of every woman in the WI. Luckily she has Pat Simms, Erica Campbell and Steph Farrow to turn to. But as the war escalates, each woman finds herself facing challenges she never expected and threats she couldn't have imagined. When a plane crashes in the heart of their village, every one of their lives will change for ever. Will their combined strength be enough to get them through the war? Keep the Home Fires Burning is also available as a four-part ebook serial that begins with Part One: Spitfire Down!. Look out for the second book in this fabulous series coming in 2018.
