    Beautifully Written Period Family Saga!

    I've been waiting to read this for quite some time; just needed a little gap in my tbr and I have to say it was well worth waiting for! Ruth, Lydia, Jenny and Grace are four young women who have become friends through working and living together; but it comes as a shock when they are all dismissed, albeit unfairly, on the same day. With very little chance of finding further employment in the small town of Ruston, they decide to head off to London in the hope of improving their lot in life, with the help of an unexpected inheritance one of them is astonished to receive. A beautifully written and warm-hearted novel, this is a really enjoyable saga encompassing not only the four girls but also their extended family and the acquaintances they make in the capital city. With several strong story lines, there is plenty happening to keep the reader glued to the page - I certainly was! Lots of details about the period make this quite mesmerising; not only what is going on in London at that time, but also about general life, the class system, fashion and so much more. Throw in a bit of mystery and it all adds up to a super 5* read - and one I'm very happy to recommend! I'm also putting Lesley Eames on my list of 'must-read' authors.  I purchased this book for myself. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

    Feminist Story

    Four former servants are given a Rolls Royce, then begin their world opening into independence as they open a limousine service. Their rise from servants to entrepreneurs is a feminist viewpoint of how richer their world becomes. Their friendship, love, and courage is a very female readers dream. Thank you Netgalley I recommend Carolintallahassee

    Lovely story!

    The Silver Ladies of London by Lesley Eames sweeps readers back in time to 1923. Ruth Turner is returning to her employer’s home of Arleigh Court after a surprising meeting. Unfortunately, the day quickly takes a downturn when Ruth along with her three friends are accused of stealing Mrs. Arleigh’s necklace and dismissed without references. Unable to find employment in their town because of the accusations of thievery, Ruth comes up with a plan. She inherited some funds along with a carriage house in London from her aunt. This will allow them to start over away from the stigma. In the carriage house they find a gorgeous and rare Silver Ghost Rolls Royce. They come up with the plan to open a car for hire service called the Silver Ladies. With their combined talents, anything is possible especially if they are willing to work hard to achieve their goal. The business soon takes off, their friendship is stronger than ever, and the girls have found romantic partners. But soon all they hold dear is threatened from a dangerous menace. How will they overcome this obstacle? The Silver Ladies of London is well-written and engaging. The four main characters of Ruth, Jenny, Lydia and Grace are just delightful. I liked seeing the four ladies develop over the course of the book. The author took the time to flesh out each character and bring them to life. Each one of them has their own talents, weaknesses and secrets. I enjoyed the descriptions of London, the hairstyles and fashions, and the gorgeous Rolls Royce. There is plenty of action going on in the book that moves the book forward. There is a slow spell in the middle, but then the pace picks up once again. The Silver Ladies of London has a unique premise with four women starting up a car for hire service in the 1920s in London. They were brave to embark into business a male dominated world. I was happy to see all the storylines wrapped up at the end of the book and I appreciated the epilogue (it will have you smiling). I am giving The Silver Ladies of London 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). The Silver Ladies of London is a charming, historical novel with a sweet, happy ending.
