The Child on Platform One (by Gill Thompson) … emotional read

I am a huge fan of WWII historical fiction books. Gill Thompson does an amazing job with this genre. From page one you are drawn into the story and you are invested until you’ve closed the book. The author has obviously done a lot of research and she mentions three true aspects in the author notes. The level of courage demonstrated amidst such horrors and adversity is admirable. I loved the sudden twist three-fourths of the way in the book. One thing that would have helped was to have dates noted on the chapters. I found myself being confused because the time frame would jump ahead several years. While an emotional read, it is worth getting lost in the story of Eva, Pamela, and Hugh.

Thank you to NetGalley and Review for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
