Can love and friendship survive hardship and war? Following the gripping story of the Ryan family in Margaret Dickinson's top ten bestseller 'The Buffer Girls', 'Daughters of Courage' sees Emily and Trip fight to keep their new life afloat in the turbulent 1930s. Emily Ryan has gone up in the world since her arrival in Sheffield. Brought there by her mother's ambitious schemes for her brother, she had found work as a buffer girl polishing cutlery in the city's famous trade. With the help of a friend, Nell, Emily eventually set up her own buffing business employing those with whom she had once worked. Married to Thomas Trippet they plan to build a life together, but when Nell's daughter disappears it seems that the menace from the past is never very far away.
