A MILLHOUSE Green author has released the latest in a series of books about female steelworkers.

Michelle Rawlins’ Steel Girls on the Homefront makes up the third part of her Steel Girls series - a collection of historical fiction books focused on the lives of local women during World War Two.

Michelle attended a book signing event at The Book Vault on Saturday.

She said: “It’s wonderful to see the third book in the series published.

“The characters in my books are such a huge part of my life and to be able to share their trials and tribulations with readers is a huge honour.

“Steel Girls on the Homefront picked up where book two ended in January 1940, when rations are being introduced, and ends in June of the same year, when the Dunkirk evacuation was in full flow.

“Although The Steel Girls series is fictional, the underlying themes are all based on fact, from the research I conducted for my first non-fiction book, Women of Steel.

“I have interviewed so many women, and their families, who worked in the steel industry during World War Two.

“Their stories and experiences are ever present in my fictional series.”
