Narrator: Gemma Dawson
I do not think I will tire any time soon of well written/narrated books based in WWII era. This is not the average serious retrospective look though, it has the feel of the lighter episodes of Downton Abbey. The war is used to show how people’s true nature plays out.
We have two main protagonists, one is Ben who is pining for Pamela but she has always had eyes for another. Then the world plunges into chaos and their feelings are irrelevant in the bigger picture. Pamela is one of five sisters and the youngest was the most entertaining one by far. The eldest is hardly mentioned while the second is having her own private story happening parallelly. There is an undercurrent of something big being planned in their neighbourhood and it is up to Ben and Pamela to figure it out with a little help from Phoebe ( the youngest girl).The story is pretty simple, and told simply as well. The endearing characteristics of these simple people are what make the story tick. It is not too hard to figure out one half of the puzzle, the other is harder and was slightly surprising. Since the mystery is but a background for the rest of the tale it did not change my feelings for the book.
This was next on my list on my Kindle Unlimited membership and I have replaced it with something lighter which comes with some good ratings on Goodreads
My last KU list’s book review was : Storm Glass (Harbinger #1) by Jeff Wheeler
Now my list looks like this:
