A heartwarming historical novel about women in wartime, inspired by the real-life events at Kew Gardens. 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. Angry and frustrated, she applies to a new wartime role at Kew Gardens, alongside her doctor friend Gus Campbell. But the committee is run by men and Beth is asked to take a job a gardener instead, running a demonstration allotment with new friend Daisy. As the bombs fall on a Blitz-stricken London she finds herself torn between Gus, and her boyfriend Paul. Can Gus and Beth overcome the racism of wartime Britain to be together? When tragedy hits, the women are forced to come together to support each other through their darkest hours. But can the Kew Gardens Girls survive the horrors of war-torn London this time?
