ShortBookandScribes #Giveaway of a Paperback Copy of Women of Steel by Michelle Rawlins
I’m delighted to be giving away a copy of Women of Steel by Michelle Rawlins today, which has just been published in paperback by Headline. Today is a special day as it marks 80 years since the final day of the Sheffield Blitz, with 12th and 15th December 1940 being the worst nights of German Luftwaffe Bombing that took place in my home city.
Wikipedia tells me that “In total over 660 people were killed, 1,500 injured and 40,000 made homeless. 3,000 homes were demolished with a further 3,000 badly damaged. A total of 78,000 homes received damage. Six George Medals were awarded to citizens of Sheffield for their bravery during the raids. 134 victims of the raids were buried in a communal grave in City Road Cemetery.”
In her book, Michelle Rawlins covers some of the Women of Steel’s own experiences during the Sheffield Blitz. I loved the book and you can read my review here. The women were so strong and feisty, doing hard labour and mostly loving it! It’s a book that made me cheer for their achievements but also broke my heart to read what they went through.
