  • Well researched and fast paced.

    This story brought to life the realities of life in England during World 2. The terrors of the Blitz, the treatment of Italian citizens rounded up and interred when Muzzolini joined Hitler and the dangers of life at sea, are all experiences brought to life through strong characters.

  • Draws you in - and keeps you there!

    Really enjoyed this wonderful book - third in a series. The depiction of Liverpool during the War, the internment of those the government considered "enemies" is so real and the characters have become like family. This author knows how to keep you coming back - my only "complaint" is the late nights because I just can't put Clare Flynn's books down! Highly recommend!

  • Spoilers

    I loved this historical fiction about WII. The character are very realistic. Can't wait for the sequile. Please say there is one. I really don't want Will to be dead and Hannah alone in Australia. Don't let Paulo stay in the Prisoner of War Camp separated from Judith. This can't be the end of their story!

  • Life, Love and Loss in Wartime Liverpool!

    Hannah and Will Kidd are newlyweds, he’s in the English merchant navy and his ship is sailing dangerous convoy missions across the Atlantic Ocean. Hannah and her younger sister Judith haven’t had an easy time, they share a house called The Laurels with Nance and the owner Sam. Will in his travels meets Italian sailor Paolo Tornabene, after Will’s last trip, he returns to London with him and he takes a shine to Judith. Hannah is worried about Judith being too young to have a boyfriend, but the couple fall head over heels in love and she can see how happy Paolo makes her sister. When Mussolini declares war on Britain, the unthinkable happens and all Italian men are imprisoned as enemy aliens. Hannah worries about Will and so many merchant ships have been sunk by the German navy. Judith is very concerned about Paolo, she has no idea how long they will detain him for and then she discovers he’s going to be sent to Australia. Life for the sisters gets worse as the war continues, Liverpool is bombed heavily and they spend many nights sleeping under the stairs or in the Anderson shelter in the backyard. London during WW II is very bleak place for Hannah and Judith, with rationing, every day facing being homeless and worrying about the men they love. Sisters At War is a story about London during the Blitz, Hannah and Judith’s relationship, their fears for what could happen to Will and Paolo, and Judith possibly moving to Australia. The story was only ok, some of the Australian language used wasn’t fitting for the time, I loved the Clancy's and three stars from me.

  • A Must Read

    When a book is based during World War Two, in Liverpool, no less, you expect some drama, some violence and a little bit of heartbreak. What I did not count on was the story being so incredibly enthralling that it was almost impossible to put down. I adored reading about Hannah. She is such an incredible woman, who has a very traumatic difficult past, and she takes on so much responsibility, so much worry and pain, that I spent a majority of this book hoping that things would get better for her, that Will would manage to get a different job, a safer one, that would cause her less concern. I also really enjoyed reading about Will, and his trips over the sea, although all of these scenes made me incredibly scared as I read about the U-boat and aerial attacks. The day-to-day aspects of living in Liverpool during the war were written wonderfully, and the fear as the sound of bombs dropping got closer was very vivid. With an Italian character in England, we also follow the horrors the Italians faced when they were arrested on suspicion of fascism and sent abroad to camps. The conditions they were subjected to on the ships was absolutely terrible and, although it seemed almost impossible, I hoped that they would be sent home again, back to their loved ones. I loved every second of this book, so much so that I stayed up half the night reading it!! *I received a copy of this novel from The Coffee Pot Book Club for review consideration.
