Praise for Kate Thompson:
A riveting and wonderful read
The way Kate Thompson writes . . . made me feel that I was reading about old friends. I just had to keep the pages turning. I am sure that before long her readers will be clamouring for more
Marvellous, full of gutsy characters I immediately empathized with
The remarkable story of the women who ruled the East End through the Blitz. A lively authentic social history, the book centres around five formidable working-class women . . . a hair-raising, but always warmhearted tale
Kate Thompson writes books that make you laugh and make you cry, sometimes at the same time. You cannot put them down. I advise you to read them all!
Inspiring tales of courage in the face of hardship
As warm, welcome and inviting as a cuppa on a cold day
Praise for Secrets of the Lavender Girls:
Another of Kate's wonderful stories with a twisty plot, warm-hearted characters, with laughter, secrets and heartbreak - and bursting with fascinating detail. A really great read
Kate Thompson has brought to life a remarkable story and in loving detail too . . . an absolute joy!
A fabulous read that both entertains and educates! A wonderfully written, heart-felt novel . . . The historical research which has gone into this novel jumps off the pages. Perfect for lovers of saga or those wanting to step through a door to the past and become enmeshed in a fascinating part of our social history
A welcome return to the Yardley Factory . . . A strong story of friendship, love and family set amid WWII
