  • Will capture your heart

    4.5 stars that I will gladly round up to 5 The Letter from Pearl Harbor is a gripping story that will take you one an emotional journey that you soon won't forget. The story is a dual time line . Robyn and Ashleigh are on a treasure hunt that their Grandmother Ginny left for them that tells the story of her life. The story starts in Pearl Harbor just before the bombing. What a wonderful idea. I wish I had paid closer attention to my grandparents story thus I loved the concept . It was quite the journey for the sisters and for Ginny. I love the point of view of the war in the Pacific. The pages turned quickly as you follow the sisters as they get to know themselves and their Grandmother. This is my first Anna Stuart book but not my last: I am a fan.

  • A Great Weekend Read!

    A Letter From Pearl Harbor by Anna Stuart was a well researched novel about the air strike over Pearl Harbor by the Japanese that pulled the United States into WWII. I enjoyed this book and the great research the author shares with us at the end of the book. The book takes place during two time periods. One during WWII and the other taking place in 2019. Two sisters Robin and Ashleigh are involved in a Treasure Hunt containing hints about their Granny Ginny’s early life as one of the first female pilots at Pearl Harbor and the secret she kept for years. The treasure hunt takes place after Ginny’s death. I loved her spunk and she was my favorite character. I liked both sides of the story but, for some reason I found it hard to switch back and forth. I think I got so involved and then the story flipped to the other time period and it took me a minute to get involved in the story again. If you’re like me and love Historical Fiction, especially if it revolves around WWII, you will most likely love this book. I received a complimentary copy of this book from #Bookouture and #Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  • Great Story of Female Pilots During World War 2

    Sisters Robyn and Ashleigh Harris embark on a 'treasure hunt' organised by their grandmother, Ginny, before her death. It is a quest that they must do together but is made more difficult by Ashleigh who is confined to a wheelchair and not the easiest person to get along with. A chest containing a letter is left at various locations around Hawaii. Through these letters and the places they visit, Robyn and Ashleigh learn of their grandmother's past during World War II. They follow Ginny's trail from her arrival in Hawaii, to how she became a civilian flight instructor, survived the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and her role as a pilot ferrying planes in England, finally revealing a tragic accident that helps Ashleigh come to terms with her disability. Once again Anna Stuart has delivered an emotional story around the events of World War II. Her focus this time is the attack on Pearl Harbor from the perspective of a female pilot caught up in these events. A lesser-known detail that Stuart makes use of is that some civilian aircraft were in the air at the time. She places Ginny in this life and death situation, in a Piper Cub surrounded by Japanese planes. It is a powerful piece of imagery that will always remind me of this novel. The relationship between Robyn and Ashleigh is a rocky one. Robyn believes that after nearly ten years Ashleigh should have come to terms with the accident that put her in a wheelchair. Ashleigh resents that Robyn has stayed away for so long, only returning to England because their grandmother was ill. Through Ginny's quest, they discover surprising things about her and each other that will force them to re-evaluate their lives, acknowledge their differences and find the courage to take a chance on love and what life has to offer. A Letter from Pearl Harbor is full of those historical details that successfully evoke another time and place. I enjoyed all aspects of this dual-time narrative, but my main interest was Ginny's experiences as a female pilot during World War II.

  • Wonderful

    A Letter from Pearl Harbor is the second WWII/present day story by talented author Anna Stuart I have read and focuses on the struggles women aviators had getting to use their talents during WWII. Rather than tell her story directly, Robyn and Ashleigh’s now deceased grandmother sends them on a treasure hunt to find the letters she’d written to them…the reasons will become obvious as characters and events are revealed. Ms. Stuart seamlessly interjects historical persons into her work and it’s obvious that she has researched the topic well. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book from NetGalley. Most highly recommend.

  • A Letter from Pearl Harbour

    I really enjoyed this story. A great way to tell two stories at the same time. Bring the Kleenex.
