The Goodwill House series
- The War Girls of Goodwill House
- New Recruits at Goodwill House
A Fabulous Second in Series!
An excellent second novel in this terrific series!
Following on from the first novel, Lady Joanna Harcourt is expecting her second influx of WAAF’s to board at Goodwill House as the female accommodation on the base isn’t yet ready for occupation. Millie and Diane are both drivers and they settle in quickly both at work and off duty. It doesn’t take long for Millie to meet Flying Officer Ted Thorrington and they hit if off right away, but with Hitler gaining ground in Europe, the pilots are flying more hours with more danger. Everyone has to pull together, but Millie is more worried than most.
I’m very fond of wartime sagas, and have been a huge fan of Fenella J Miller’s since I read my first novel of hers. From the very beginning, it was obvious this was going to be a cracking series. Always well-researched, with interesting facts among the storyline I was delighted to return to Goodwill House and find out how life was treating the original characters as well as meet all the newbies. The author does an excellent job of showing how things were changing for the women in Britain and just how fleeting life could be. Beautifully written, as always, and with a super cover, I can’t wait to read the next in series! This is a fabulous novel, and one I’m very happy to recommend and give all five stars.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and to Rachel Gilbey for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
