Reminiscent of Martha Hall Kelly's Lilac Girls and Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale this sweeping entrancing story is a must read for fans of remarkable women rising to challenges they could never have predicted It’s always been easier for Cara Hargraves to bury herself in the past than confront the present which is why working with a gruff but brilliant antiues dealer is perfect While clearing out an estate she pries open an old tin that holds the relics of aost relationship among the treasures a World War II era diary and a photograph of a young woman in uniform Eager to find the author of the hauntingly beautiful unfinished diary Cara digs into Ghtful owner of the diary is so they can return it to the familyAs the novel switches viewpoints between Louise and Cara it becomes a connected network of similarities and revelations balanced with moments of the women s relationships failures and successes If you have been fooled ike me by the blurb on the book that states For fans of the Lilac Girls or The Nightingale The Never-Ending Present: The Story of Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip & let me say that in my opinion that is not exactly true I am an absolute fan of the Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly and the tragic story of the Rabbit Girls at Ravensbrueck so much though that I have done further reading on the subject and suggested readings from the back of that book And this novel was nothingike the atrocities that happened at Concentration camp For fans of The Nightingale it may hold a bit closer of a match but again the direct contact and influence of German soldiers in town and their violence was a missing piece in this novel However The Light Over London is a beautiful romantic read that takes place around during the WWII and holds it s own for a great sweeping story that touches on the subject of woman in the military during the war Specifically the Ack Ack Girls This was a egitimate branch of adies that was sent to assist gunners to target in on German planes to shoot them out of the sky from the ground So as it goes I went and The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Vol. 4 (light novel) looked up some info on these braveadies and will attach it at the bottom To gather my thoughts and sum it up this novel is beautiful and touching The romance is sweet and slow and I don t read romance novels normally I fell for the blurb expecting something different But I was pretty smitten This book ended up being the one I wanted to read in the tub with some bubbly and the one that kept me up Fret Work Step By Step late at night reading The conclusion is sweet not everything is a happy ending but it checked all the boxes of closing the different plot endingsonly for me to wish I could read on So already missed are the characters and this book will be one of my faves for its own flavor not to stand in the shadow of another Romance haters beware Romanceovers embrace This novel is beautiful EnjoyI received a digital copy of this title from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review All opinions are my own Thank you Photos and articles on my website Ah my favourite kind of story that moves back and forth through the past and present time Superbly written In the present day Cara is an antiues dealer who is dealing with an estate of a recently deceased Mark of the Dragon Urban Dragon lady She finds an old diary in amongst her things It is a diary written in the WW2 era about a war time romance She is fascinated and begins to try to solve the mystery The story goes back in time as Cara reads the diary entries In the present time Cara is also trying to find out a family secret about her own Grandmother during the second World WarSometimes when I read these past and present stories I enjoy one than the other but in this book I eually enjoyed both stories They were well thought out and told brilliantlyittle by ittle until the end and the big reveals I will definitely be reading from this author If you enjoy Wartime romances I highly recommend this one I chose to read this around Remembrance Day I think it added to the nostalgia I really enjoyed itThank you to NetGalley and Simon Schuster Canada for allowing me the opportunity to read this Advanced Reader Copy Historical fiction is my favorite genre so I was interested in what this novel had to offer One of my pet peeves is publicists comparing one book to another The Lilac Girls was about Hitler s doctors horrible experiments on twins and the award winning The Nightingale Was About Two Sisters And Their Decisions About How They about two sisters and their decisions about how they out the war one at home and one in the French resistance The only thing this novel had in common with those is that it was set during WWII I think the publisher does harm than good when comparing one book to another I would call this of a historical romance with a mystery with ots of emphasis on the romance The story is told from two points of view and we go back and forth from the present day to WWII The timelines flowed nicelyLouise Keene is 19 years old and Tubâ va ma'nâ ye shab living in a small Cornish village with herife seemingly planned out for her by her mother To escape these plans and her small village she signs up for the British Army and will be working in the anti aircraft division as what they called an Ack Ack girl Her cousin Kate whom she is uite close to also signs upThe women basically did all of the scoping out of the night sky and when a plane was spotted they did the math that was involved to get the guns in the correct ocation and then a man was the one who fired the gun This was an interesting enough part of the book earning about the gunner girls although her romance with an RAF pilot seemed trite and underdeveloped She
