A true story of sisterhood and its unbreakable bonds in the shadow of World War Two.
J. M. Maloney is a former national newspaper showbiz editor and has worked in senior roles in consumer magazines. He is now a freelance showbusiness journalist who writes for various publications in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. He has written books on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and a review examining the stories behind 100 historic newspaper headlines. As the son of one of the Jarman sisters, he is perfectly placed to tell the story of the experiences of his mother and his aunts during World War Two.
"This is a tale of survival - of six girls who faced bombs and
prejudice alike, but who rolled up their sleeves and looked after
each other. Nobody could accuse the lively Sisters of Battle Road
of keeping calm. But by heck, they carried on." * Daily Mail *
"Survival against the odds... [an] amazing story." * The Sun *
"An extraordinary story." * The Guardian *
"This story hits hard with nostalgia for a vanished world where pennies counted, housewifery was taught at school and every one pulled together, untied by a common enemy." * Sussex Life *
