The Girls from the Local Ruby has been living and working at the Point of No Return pub since her parents were killed by a bomb. She loves the bustle of the pub; it helps take her mind off worrying about her fiance, Joe, away fighting in France. The only thing Ruby doesn’t like about the Point is Sylvie. This singing siren may have a beautiful voice, but she’s out for all she can get, including Joe. Finally, there’s Marge, a true party girl. She’s a great friend to Ruby and makes sure they have fun, going out to dances and flirting with all and sundry, but she’s not as fond of her other role as a mother to two young children.
