Eileen Younghusband Wins People's Book Prize

3 Jun 2013

Candy Jar Books is pleased to announce that author Eileen Younghusband has been named winner of  The People’s Book Prize  in the non-fiction 2012/2013 category for her book  One Woman's War.

The People’s Book Prize is open to all published authors and judged solely by the general public. The annual event presented its first awards in 2010 following the death of its founding patron Dame Beryl Bainbridge.

One Woman’s War  reveals the truth about the forgotten wartime Filter Room women, who barely out of their teens, were employed because they were quicker than men. They were given an awesome responsibility, working against the clock, knowing that their cool head and proficiency at maths could make the difference between a bomber being shot down in flames or getting through to drop its deadly cargo.
