I really liked this book, but I tend to be a sucker for historical fiction dealing with World War II. It was a refreshing change to see it from the British point of view.

This was the third book I've read by Jerry Borrowman, and it actually was my favorite so far. The story follows the Battle of Britain in WWII, and while I've read a fair amount about that timeperiod, I did learn some things from the British perspective (such as what the war front was like in Africa). His writing seemed to flow better in this novel, and I also really enjoyed the character development that occured throughout the book. My only complaint is that I felt the story ended a bit abruptly ...more

I really enjoyed this book, historical fiction is my favorite way to read history. Borrowman did a great job at developing each character and I appreciated that the fictional part was a great story and unpredictable. I would definitely read this again and recommend it to others. I hope there is a sequel that continues with the Carlyle family because I felt that it ended abruptly, there were still some loose ends to tie up. Just went to Borrowman's website and there is a sequel entitled Home Agai ...more

This book was almost as good as Till the boys come home. It had a very great ending and it was constant action. I can't wait to get the last book. Another thing it had was ship action this others didn't have. The first had artillery and planes, the second submarines and planes. I can see this clearly in a movie, music and all. Sadness, happiness, missions... I hope the fourth will be at least half as good.

This is the final book in the series and it takes the view again from two different soldiers but from the British point of view. And from one British soldier who served in Africa. It was fun to read from different perspectives.

Lots of war action and less of the fictional family's story. An interesting read if you're into World War 2 stories.

This is the 3rd book by Jerry Borrowman - He writes a good book and keeps your interest

Even though this book is supposed to be the third in the series, you actually go back to the first events of WWII. That took some getting used to. I love Jerry Borrowman's historical fiction because it follows the characters through the events of the war, no wandering just to cover an event or conversation that the characters wouldn't have been privy to. I enjoyed this book but I did have a hard time dealing with one of the characters actions and emotions. Most of the time the main characters in ...more

I've really been enjoying these books. The reader for the audio is great and I also love all the details that the author uses.

LDS Historical Fiction.
A World War II Novel-Battle of Britain.
"The outbreak of war threatened all families living in England, including
the rich and powerful. Lord Philip Carlyle, a member of Winston
Churchill’s War Cabinet, was keenly aware of the danger as the father
of two military age sons, Michael and Dominic. Although both were
born in America they had spent most of their lives living at Carlyle
Manor near London. Now their adopted country would call on them at
its hour of greatest need." Highly

I liked that the view was a British view. I didn't know too much from the British perspective. So my Historic part of me really got to see what England went through before America came in. They were alone and trying to find a way into German Occupied Europe.

The story was great as well. I usually don't read to many War books but I liked this one. The characters were good and the plot flowed. I liked the book before a tish better but I think it held its own. And I learned a bunch from a historica

Good book
Oct 07, 2009 Cheryl rated it liked it
A friend gave my husband this book and it was just sitting there so I read it. I had read so much fantasy thanks to my kids, that I was ready to try something different. This book was about a family involved in WWII with ties to both the US and England. It was an easy read, not deep, and I did learn a lot about the history of the time. As long as you know that it is historical fiction, and LDS fiction at that, it was an interesting read.

this is the 3rd book in this series of 4 books. it is LDS fiction witten by jerry borrowman who lives in sandy. i have liked them alot.
this wone takes place with the English being the main characters. The son Dominic is the one character i could not relate to. I am not sure he was very realistic. the rest of the characters were great. I liked the Churchill references.
Mar 30, 2009 Tami rated it really liked it
I was shocked at one part...won't tell you when or why! = ) And it made me bawl! Of course, I cry fairly easy with a good story. This book was filled with action without the gory details. Better than I'll Be Seeing You, I think. Fascinating way to learn about the war in the Pacific (WWII).
Oct 03, 2012 Roy rated it it was amazing
I enjoyed the British perspective and particularly that the author shared so much about his thoughts of what precipitated the war. The storyline of the eldest son was very interesting as well. The struggle with the second son was heart wrenching, put so very well done. A great book!

Once again this author captivates me, and explains so much about our military--------and about England, and about the Mormon Church. I have one more book to go, and I will keep this series on my permanent bookshelf---the books are that great!
Sep 03, 2012 Brian rated it really liked it
Pretty good book. Interesting to read it from the British point of view. I always enjoy reading about WWII and this book surprised me with a few stories that I had no idea about, which I really enjoyed reading about.

This series dragged a bit and the first two books I enjoyed more than the last. But...they're clean, Christian, and historical fiction. It's a time period I like to read about as well.

I enjoyed the first 2 books of this series very much, but this one was hard to get into. It felt like I was reading it to get done with it rather than enjoying to story.

I did like this book. However, I didn't like it as much as I did the others. I wasn't drawn in as deep emotionally as I was with the other two in this series.

This book is off to a slow start...I hope it gets more interesting to me.
