In the wake of D-Day three very different women join a touring variety company, performing to factory girls, hospitals and serving troops.
Catherine’s husband has been reported missing in action and she needs a job to support her mother and daughter.
Della, a Liverpudlian show girl, is ambitious for fame and hides her problems behind a devil-may-care attitude.
Frances, titled but impoverished, will do anything to keep the family home safe for her brother, a POW in the Far East.
Travelling from show to show, the three women form a strong bond. But when they follow the advancing army through France, their friendship deepens as the company is stalked by lies and betrayal, and it’s clear that nobody will come home the same.

The Very Thought of You is filled with friendship, love and sadness – a very good story giving an insight into not only the brave military of WW2 but the entertainers who gave them a lift with their singing and dancing etc. The Author Mary Fitzgerald. A great storyteller. Once you start reading her books you don’t want to put them down. I loved this one.
