I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I receive no compensation for reviews.
Here we are following three girls during World War 2 as they make their way in a world at war. The descriptions of the places and things is so accurate you feel as though you are right there with them. For Bridget Milligan we find her in the nursing services and more than a little in awe of modern medicine. She has a found her calling in life but at the same time is torn between her family, her career, and the man she loves.
While Phyllis Harvey is in Malta serving in the Air Force and has been through a lot. She fled a mother who was overbearing, the loss of a baby, and a presumed dead husband that she didn’t love. Now she has met a man she truly loves but who knows what the future will hold for them.
That leaves Maisie Miles holding down the fort at home in the tobacco factory and is alone now that her friends are gone off t war and her grandmother has died. That doesn’t mean she is helpless. In fact, Maisie was my favorite of the girls. She may have been left behind but someone has to do the work at home.
This book was so wonderful as I have said. Every description makes you feel as though you are right there with the girls. Every heartbreak, moment of grief, joy, and pain hits you in your soul. Having not read any of the other books I was wasn’t lost on what was going on and there is enough backstories that I was able to keep up. It is beautifully written and the characters are timeless.
