In 1930s West York­shire, a group of girls work the elec­tri­cal switch­boards at a brand-new tele­phone ex­change. Among them are Cyn­thia, Norma and Mil­li­cent, who rel­ish the busy at­mos­phere and the friend­ship their jobs have given them. But when Mil­li­cent lis­tens in to a tele­phone con­ver­sa­tion – break­ing the tele­phon­ists’ main rule – the girls be­come caught up in a story of scan­dal, cor­rup­tion and mur­der.

The Tele­phone Girls by Jenny Holmes, £4.99, Corgi
