  • A satisfying ending to this charming series

    The Spitfire Girl: Over and Out by Fenella J. Miller is the conclusion of The Spitfire Girls series. The story picks up in February 1943 with Ellie Simpson Reynolds learning to fly four-engined bombers which will earn her a promotion to First Officer. Jack Reynolds, Ellie’s husband, is busy ferrying planes out of White Waltham while Ellie is stationed with all female pilot crew at Hamble. Ellie’s grandfather, Sir Reginald is dying which means her brother, George will inherit the estate and title. Their father’s farm, Glebe Farm will now go to Ellie. Jack is already uncomfortable with the inheritance Ellie received from her ex-fiancé. As the war marches to its conclusion, Jack and Ellie begin to think about life after the war. They purchase The Rookery which was owned by the local “witch”, Mary. The Reynolds soon find themselves embroiled in a mystery. I thought this story was well-written with developed characters. We get to see what life was like for female pilots during World War II. Ellie is a member of the ATA which ferries planes all over England. It was interesting to learn about this brave group of women and their contribution to the war effort. The story is full of British sayings and slangs which I enjoyed because they add color to the story. George and his wife, Fiona are back along with Fred and Mabel. We get to follow Jack and Ellie through their day to day activities. They are thinking about the future. What they will do for work after the war and where they will live. We get to see a realistic view of marriage. It is not a smooth ride for our two pilots. Life has its ups and downs. Jack has insecurities over the money Ellie inherited and that he is not a complete “man” since he lost his arm. Ellie worries about the life after the war she will not be flying every day. I was happy that the author included a mystery. It added another level to this book. I do feel that The Spitfire Girl series needs to be read in order. I thought that the ending was abrupt. I wish the author had included an epilogue that took Ellie and Jack a year or two into the future. It would have provided a more fulfilling conclusion to this charming historical series. The Spitfire Girl: Over and Out is a satisfying wrap up to this inviting historical series with pragmatic pilots, booming bombs, a mysterious murder, and happily-ever-afters.

  • Well Written & Terrifically Crafted!

    This has been a wonderful series and I was sorry to reach the final book; it's absolutely packed and finishes off Ellie's story beautifully. As the war continues, life in the ATA can be somewhat manic; whilst Ellie and Jack are busy collecting and delivering aircraft all over the country they find time spent together is rare. Married life has began in an unusual manner and they both find themselves thinking of finding a home to share. However, when they do find the ideal property it turns out they've got more than they bargained for . . . Each book in this series has opened up new and different direction and this one excels in spreading out to take in not only Ellie and Jack's lives, but that of all their friends and families. It's a real reminder of just what personal sacrifices people made for the war effort. Following through the final years of world war two, this is a well written and terrifically crafted story of the deprivations of rationing (we could do with it at the moment to stop the selfish from stockpiling whilst others do without). Rich in detail with marvellous characters, I really enjoyed this one; it complements the whole series and brings everything to a lovely conclusion, leaving no questions unanswered.  If you love to read a historical saga that you can immerse yourself in, then this is one I highly recommend! Entertaining, totally enjoyable and well worth 4.5*.

  • interesting, not enough Historical fact.

    This series was an interesting read. Unfortunately was more to do with Ellie's love life than delivering planes. would like to have seen more about ATA and more detail on the subject of delivering plane for the war effort. Fenella would have Ellie take off in Southampton and successfully deliver a plane in the North of England in half a page. If you are going to write a historical fiction novel, please get the historical fact correct. There were many errors, non more so than stating that the London Blitz was in retaliation for the allies bombing of Dresden. An interesting comment to make considering the London Blitz was 1940 and Dresden was Feb 1945. Fenella should do more research instead of churning out so many average book (about 50 books in 10 years) maybe write a few good ones. Maybe her genre should be Mills & Boon. The idea of having to buy 4 books to finish the storyline was disappointing. But I guess that's the trend these days. Although most other authors will have a complete story in each book, and the series linked by an underlying thread. These books, you have to read all 4 books for the complete story.

  • Over and Out

    The final book in the series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It will be sad not to read about the characters in this series after the war has finished. I would recommend the series. A story of war, sacrifice and love.
