'A gorgeous novel about making the best of things during difficult times, whilst celebrating the importance of sisterhood and friendship' - Jill Mansell

'The Great British Bake Off set in World War Two . . . an enchanting hug of a novel' - Cathy Kelly

Some wars will be fought at home . . .

Two years into the Second World War, Britain is feeling her losses: the Nazis have won battles, the Blitz has destroyed cities and U-boats have cut off the supply of food. In an effort to help housewives with food rationing, a BBC radio program called The Kitchen Front is holding a cooking contest - and the grand prize is a job as the program's first-ever female co-host. For four very different women, winning the competition would present a crucial chance to change their lives.

For a young widow, it's a chance to pay off her husband's debts and keep a roof over her children's heads. For a kitchen maid, it's a chance to leave servitude and find freedom. For a lady of the manor, it's a chance to escape her wealthy husband's increasingly hostile behaviour. And for a trained chef, it's a chance to challenge the men at the top of her profession. These four women are giving the competition their all - even if that sometimes means bending the rules . . .
