    One thought on “The Ferry Girls”

    1. A nice easy read. Very enjoyable. Learning about the work women did on the Ferry was very interesting. There are one or two things that annoyed me. Sammy, who was in all essence, a bad dude, is just welcomed into May's house and he's suddenly one of the family. I don't think I would have been that forgiving after the way he had treated her daughter. Things are neatly tied up at the end, as you'd expect, but a bit too neatly. Still, these are only small niggles. It's well worth a read.

    2. Another easy read book from Rosie Archer. You can get into the book and enjoy the characters and their ups and downs through WW2 on the South East coast and how the ferries remained working throughout.

    3. The Ferry Girls is a fabulous book detailng war work on the ferry's,to meet the women who worked so hard on the home front is so entertaining.I must admit i do love Rosie Archers books and this one is well worth 5*.

    4. Excellent story from Rosie again! easy to read and very likeable characters from the start. I really hope this is the start of a new series of "Ferry girls" books

    5. A lovely readVery descriptive, can't wait to read more. I love reading a book that you don't want the story to end. ,,😊

    6. A lovely bookGreat book by Rosie Archer. Easy for read and very enjoyable. Lovely storyline, and the characters appearing so real. I really enjoyed reading it.
