I was fortunate to get an ARC of ‘Gracie’s War’ and found it an absorbing read.
The story is set in South-east London at the beginning of the Second World War, as Gracie is about to celebrate her 21st birthday. Based on the memories of the author’s parents the setting is incredibly authentic – you can almost hear the bombers flying overhead.

This is a quick read about a girl and WWII. It is hard to think of any novel that is only about 95 pages dealing with this time period, bu Elaine Everest manages to bring Gracie's story to the reader in a satisfying way.

Gracie's story is one that happened often in the war years and happens often today... A girl gets involved with a guy and ends up, as they say, in the family way. The only problem is, the guy that father's her baby is not a very nice guy, and the reader can see that from the star
