Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan

Four women compete for a once-in-a-lifetime spot hosting a BBC cooking program during World War II in this vibrant historical novel from the bestselling author of The Chilbury Ladies' Choir . Two years into World War II, Britain is feeling her losses; the Nazis have won battles, the Blitz has destroyed cities, and U-boats have cut off the supply of food. In an effort to help housewives with food rationing, a BBC radio program called The Kitchen Front is putting on a cooking contest-and the grand prize is a job as the program's first-ever female co-host. For four very different women, winning the contest presents a crucial chance to change their lives. For a young widow, it's a chance to pay off her husband's debts and keep a roof over her children's heads. For a kitchen maid, it's a chance to leave servitude and find freedom. For the lady of the manor, it's a chance to escape her wealthy husband's increasingly hostile behavior. And for a trained chef, it's a chance to challenge the men at the top of her profession. These four women are giving the competition their all-even if that sometimes means bending the rules. But with so much at stake, will the contest that aims to bring the community together end up breaking it apart?
