Waited ages for Jacky to do a World War One book? Result! Suffragettes, factory smoke, love and hope in a time of darkness. Even better than Hetty. A brand new gem of a story in trademark Jacky style. Fiercely smart but trapped in a factory. In love, but thwarted by war. Opal dreams of a scholarship to university. But when her dad is sent to prison, she has to start work at the Fairy Glen sweet factory instead. The other workers despise her. Yet Mrs Roberts, the factory’s elegant owner, introduces Opal to the legendary Mrs Pankhurst and her fellow Suffragettes. At last, Opal has an outlet for her wit and fire. Her joy seems complete when she meets her soulmate: Morgan, the handsome heir to Fairy Glen. But war is coming, and it will change everything…
