  • Good read!

    I love WWII Historical Fiction and this was different from the usual ones that I have read. The story takes place as the war is just starting when Jane Hadley, an 18-year-old who has been severely abused by her father all her life, seeks shelter with their vicar and joins the WAAF. It isn't long before Jane meets pilot Oscar Stanton who immediately falls in love with her. The story revolves around Jane and the female co-workers she meets and makes friends with, but it always manages to come back to Oscar who she is having a hard time learning to trust after her abusive relationship with her father. I really enjoyed this book but I did not care for the character of Jane. Thank you NetGalley and Aria Books for the ARC of this very interesting book in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Child abuse, Emotional Growth dealing with War!

    An abusive father forces young Jane to run not only into worn torn London and joining the WAAF (Women’s Auxillary Air Force). She encounters not only various other young ladies, but also a young Air Pilot Oscar who helps her to overcome the emotions of fears of what her father did to her. Jane becomes attached to a secret section which she excels and grows in confidence and emotional growth. Oscar also grows into his leadership position and gains skills in dealing with the death of his subordinates. The author tackles some major issues and the dynamics of the community turning a blind eye to child abuse. The fact of how war takes a toll on families even those with religious backgrounds. It even touches on how some people of wealth ignore their children because they don’t choose to follow their opinions or their directions and then they turn their backs on them. That even though those with no money will do what they can to be supportive and will even go against a spouse to protect a child while another parent will just step aside and allow a child to be victimized. The author does a remarkable job in showing all aspects that the readers get a chance to see these things happen as the story develops! I couldn’t put my Kindle down! I would definitely recommend this book! I received an advanced copy from NetGalley and these are my willingly given thoughts and opinions.

  • A most enjoyable story

    A truly fascinating story, a young teenage girl suffering beatings from her father, finally gets the courage to run away and join the WRAF, where she, literally, grows up. Great story telling albeit with some suffering, but set in WWll and just the right amount of romance.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Such an Enjoyable Tale!

    Another excellent second world war drama - all the better for this author's attention to detail! While the rest of the country fears war for Jane Hadley it is a means of escape. Running away from home to join the WAAF when war is declared gets her away from her brute of a father and she embraces her new life. As soon as basic training is complete, Jane finds herself on the move culminating in top secret training. As her confidence grows, she encounters officer Oscar Stanton but before they really get their relationship on a firm footing, Jane's father find her. Can she survive to continue with her new found career? Such an enjoyable tale! This is an author who can always be depended on for a good, realistic storyline and she manages to get across the highs and lows of the many young women who volunteered. Excellent characterisation and an exciting storyline all add up to a thoroughly good read. I do enjoy a good saga set during the second world war, and Fenella J Miller never fails to deliver. A complete read in itself, this is beautifully written and hard to put down. Highly recommended and one I'm happy to give four stars.

    Thanks for your feedback!
