Custard Tarts and Broken HeartsLarge Print - 2014 | Large print edition
They call them custard tarts - the girls who work at Pearce Duff's custard powder factory in Bermondsey before the First World War. Conditions are hard but nothing can quench the spirit of humour and friendship - or the rising tide of anger that will finally bring the girls out on strike. For one of them, striking spells disaster. Nellie Clark's wages keep her young brothers and sisters from starvation, while her father sinks into drunken violence after the death of their mother. While Nellie struggles to keep her family together, two men compete for her love, and over them looms the shadow of the coming war.
