My Review –

I just love this series and it was wonderful to be back with the Tobacco Girls again.

They have all been scattered at this stage, but their friendship remains strong and it was great to catch up with them and see how their lives are turning out.

There’s a real sense of optimism in this book, as the war is coming to an end. But as events show us, it’s not over yet, and there’s a long way to go. There’s always the fear that any happiness will be short-lived, and I was full of trepidation that something terrible could still go wrong.

I think I enjoyed this book the best of all the series so far, perhaps because the characters now feel like old friends, and I found it so easy to get back into their stories. I really hope that there’ll be another one left in this series, I feel that there’s still some unanswered questions at the end. I would love to follow their lives right up until peacetime.

An absolutely gorgeous page-turner of a book, one to entertain and to captivate, highly recommended.

My Rating –
