  • The Forgotten Girls

    I love this book! I spent a few wonderful late nights reading about Elaine and Bobby. Heartbreaking but also heartwarming.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Absolutely brilliant writing

    Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Once again Ms. Page has brought to life characters that you can relate to and you feel like they are member of your family or your circle of friends. The book takes place in two locations and different time periods. The first location is London in 1943 during the war. Elaine "Pinky" Parker works as a typist, transcribing letters while looking for secret hidden messages. The second location is Spain in 2016. The family gathered there are the daughters and grandchildren of Elaine Parker. Ms. Page weaves together the stories of how this family came to be. Elaine was left to care for her brothers Clive and Alan - both of whom had their demons to fight. She was the girlfriend and later fiancee of the famous WWII photographer Robert Capa, a "foolish" Hungarian who made history photographing the landings at Normandy for 'Life' Magazine. His book "Slightly Out of Focus: The Legendary Photojournalist's Illustrated Memoir of World War II" is still widely available along with several others that he authored. Ms. Page chronicles the choices that Elaine makes - good or bad that she ends up having to live with for the rest of her life. Gathered in Spain are Elaine's daughters Barbara and Shirley. Barbara never had children but Shirley has Matthew and Jennifer. As they've gathered together, a documentary film maker fills them in on the life that their mother/grandmother lived during and after the war. Many secrets and truths come out during this visit. The Forgotten Girls has several meanings as you read through the book. I think Ms. Page has once again written an endearing story that will make you laugh, cry, and have great respect for what people went through so many years ago.

  • Family First

    Wartime is a different time to live in. People have to make choices that they would not ordinarily make. Lives are changed by circumstances that are out of their control. The story is about a clerical worker, Elaine that loses her parents, thus must care for her brothers. She falls in love with a famous war photographer, Robert. Because of her family responsibilities she breaks off her engagement and marries someone else. Elaine and Robert never stop loving each other. Many years later a documentary is being done on the famous photographer. Elaine's daughters, Betty and Shirley and their children try to find out about the relationship between Robert and Elaine, coming across information and a secret involving Betty. This book is about relationships during the war and years later. It has romance and heartbreak. There are sad moments and happy moments. I enjoyed the book and I would recommend it. Thanks to Lizzie Page, Bookouture, and NetGalley for allowing me to read and review an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Not a favorite of mine

    This story takes place from several different points of view beginning in London 1944 and going to Spain 2016. Going back and forth between these different time spans with numerous characters became somewhat confusing to me at times. I found the characters all quite bland and unremarkable. I love historical fiction but I was disappointed in this one. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I give this book 3-1/2 stars.

    Thanks for your feedback!
