Had potential but failed to deliver.
Neither the action nor the romance was particularly convincing.
Months pass by in a twinkling. Events happen because that's where the author drags the plot. It never seems to arise naturally from the characters or situation. There is very little suspense, no chance that a character you care about will be killed or turn out to be a traitor.

I did enjoy reading about Frankie's training and her troubles in relating to the other women. I found the action packed endi

I had never heard of the FANYs when I started reading this book.
Somehow I was expecting great things as it seemed to be a fascinating basis for a good story. But although it began well with Frankie's first meeting with Nick during an air-raid, I was disappointed to find that so much of it became rather school dorm. ie bitching, secret liaisons and cameraderie, and all a bit too predictable.
The real action was confined to the beginning and the end when there was some actual tension in the writing

Really good book. I enjoyed seeing how the women of the war were as needed as the men! I loved watching the relationship between nick and frankie blossom and how they kept getting seperated and reunited.

Would recommend to everyone!

Whilst in an air raid shelter Gina Franconi meets British Officer Nick Harper. This encounter leads her into an adventurous time in WW2 as part of the group FANYs. I enjoyed this wartime story, and have been encouraged to look for other books by this author.
