I loved the first book in the Emmy Lake Chronicles series, Dear Mrs. Bird. So I was excited at the opportunity to read this book. While the atrocities of WWII are still threaded throughout the pages, the author helps lighten the mood with humor and delightful characters. The characters are well developed and I love the relationships that grow between them … both new and previous friends. Emmy is an amazing and strong individual. It was a pleasure to see her continue to mature, grow, and meet the challenges she faces daily. Kudos to the author for her ability to balance the difficulties experienced during WWII with lighthearted wit and a deep wisdom. I really enjoyed this book.
Thank you to NetGalley and Scribner for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
