Praise for The Silver Ladies of London
It's early 20th century when four young woman are being fired from their servant jobs in the English countryside for a crime they didn't commit. They decide to move to London and start up their own business. Quite a daring thing to do in a man's world. A string of exciting events follows, moving at a good pace, entertaining me all the way.
Ruth, Lydia, Jenny, and Grace are a dynamic team of women who are ahead of their time. Set in the 1920s, this novel explores how these four picked themselves up from being fired from their jobs. Admittedly, the set up for this is a little unrealistic- an inherited silver Rolls Royce- but it's still cool. Becoming chauffeurs is not something many would have opted for as a rebound but it works for them. The women are well fleshed out and you'll probably find a favourite (not telling which was mine!
I very quickly became immersed in these characters and their plight in life. I loved how they each had completely different personalities but they also had their quirks and issues. I thought they meshed well together. I found myself getting frustrated with the uppity "ladies" in the book and the men that gave them a hard time but then I remembered that was how the MAN's world was back then and women can be mean to each other even today. This was a quick but enjoyable book for me and I would properly recommend it.
A very lovely story, well written and interesting. I loved the story, the unusual profession of the heroines and the way they were written, so realistic and full of life. A fun and enjoyable read. Highly recommended!
An interesting about women who fight and succeed to do jobs that normally were considered only for men. An easy read with a romance and a good ending.
