The Kew Gardens girls at war

Lovell, Posy, 1973-2021
Books, Manuscripts
When Daisy Turner's new husband joins the RAF to fight the Battle of Britain, she's terrified she's going to lose him. So when her mother Ivy suggests she joins the gardeners at Kew to keep busy, Daisy's intrigued. After all, Ivy worked at Kew during the last war and made lifelong friends along the way. Ivy's friend, Louisa Armitage, is feeling old and useless at her Kent home, wishing she could return to Kew and do her bit for the war effort. Tensions are rising between Louisa and her pacifist husband, as they argue over their nephew Christopher, who's enlisted. But Louisa's not ready to hang up her gardening gloves yet, and she's soon on her way to Kew with an idea that could really make a difference. Meanwhile Beth Sanderson is furious after her father stops her applying to medical school.
