Joanna Foat’s characters are brilliantly drawn and so wonderfully written, readers will end up missing them when they turn the last page. Their struggles, friendships and dramas kept me hooked till the end and I found myself wiping away a tear or two on many an occasion.

"Written with style, flair and heart, this evocative, entertaining and gloriously readable historical novel is a delight from beginning to end and I look forward to reading more books from Joanna Foat.”

"Here is my review of the powerful novel "The Lumberjills - Stronger Together" by Joanna Foat @jofoat on - when young women joined the Land Army to help provide wood for the War effort, things were not easy..." Julie Barham, Northern Reader

"It is a well written, enjoyable novel about a group of girls from different backgrounds who joined the Women’s Timber Corps. What impressed me more is that this book is Joanna’s first work of fiction – and what a fabulous non stop page turning debut – but Joanna has written a non fiction book about The Lumberjills, has spoken to more than 60 former Lumberjills and has spent 10 years researching her subject. That’s amazing!" Linda Hobden, Boots Shoes and Fashion
