About the Book:
Can love find a way to overcome hate?
When Frankie’s mother dies, she is sent to live with her Aunt Bet in Worthing, Sussex. Life on their farm is happy – for a while. But when World War Two breaks out, Frankie must help her country by signing up to the women’s branch of the British Army.
Soon, she meets Romare, an American doctor who has come to the UK after facing terrible racism at home. But trouble is stirring in Britain too, and it falls to Frankie to try to protect him. Can love triumph over a history of hate? Or will Frankie and Romare’s love pay the ultimate sacrifice?
A moving, thought-provoking story, perfect for fans of Katie Flynn and Maureen Lee.
This is such a moving and poignant book.
I love books set in this era, but this one is a little bit different, with the story of Romare, and what was going on in the Southern states of America, alongside the war storyline.
The characters are so authentic in this book. It’s absolutely impossible not to be completely drawn into the story. It feels so real. I really liked Frankie, she’s such a strong and interesting woman. I found her war career really fascinating. Again, a little bit different to many of the jobs we often hear of women doing in the war.
This is a lovely, heart-warming book, but it’s very real and has some really heart rending and sad, even shocking, moments too.
This is my first read by this author, and I’m delighted to have found a new author whose books I’ll now have to read. There are many books written in this genre, but this one is a cut above, and I really want to read more.
A beautiful novel, so authentic and full of emotions. If you like historical fiction you really should read it. Superb.
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
