London on 3 September is in upheaval. War is inevitable. Into this turmoil steps Kate Sheridan newly arrived from Ireland to live with her Aunt and Uncle and look for work. When she meets Flight Lieutenant Charlie Butler sparks fly, but he is a notorious womanizer. Should she ignore all the warnings and get involved with a ladies man whose life will be in daily danger?
Wow I wasn’t expecting such a captivating read. We set out on a road trip, one of my favorite times to read, and I manage to finish this before we got to our destination.
The characters that mattered were well developed and easy to identify with especially Charlie and Kate. I absolutely loved getting to know Kate and Charlie and watching their characters develop over the course of the novel. Charlie undergoes one of the most beneficial developments I have ever experienced in a book. Kate and Charlie were some of the strongest individuals Ive had the pleasure to read about. I love how they embrace the challenges and learn to grown from them.
The plot and story line are easy to follow and a joy to read. Lorna takes a very difficult period and shows us a new and sometimes refreshing view. While I did have an issue with how quickly Kate’s and Charlie’s relationship took off, later on in the the story I did enjoy how it progressed. I completely understand war changes people can cause people to react differently and maybe that is why they relationship developed so fast.
There are a few steamy scenes so here is your warning. They are well done but I always like a heads up.
Lorna Peel did a wonderful job writing a story that keeps the reader engaged and I enjoyed every minute of the book.
