The struggles of war will build the strongest of friendships... 1940, Liverpool: Best friends Alice Turner and Millie Markham work for the war effort at Rootes munitions factory, making shell caps and Halifax bombers. Alice's sweetheart Terry is home from the front for a brief period of leave, and the women are excitedly planning a whirlwind wedding. But the honeymoon is soon over, and the ever-present air raid sirens quickly bring Alice back down to earth. When a terrible explosion at the factory leads to a tragic death, and a loved one is announced missing in action, it's only their friendship and the support of the other factory girls which help to keep Alice and Millie's spirits up. As the war stretches on with no sign of an ending, can Alice and Millie help one another make it through - and find happiness even in the darkest of times? The Factory Girls of Lark Lane is a heart-wrenching family saga about women in World War 2, the strength of friendship, and hope.
