5☆ A Captivating & Authentic War Time Saga I simply adored!


Victory for the East End Angels is the fourth and final book in the series, but my Second Book.
It can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading them all as you miss out a little on getting to know the characters more, and they really are loveable characters.

Bella, Winnie and Frankie are back and warmly known as the East End Angels.
We follow their trials and tribulations as ambulance workers throughout WW2 and how the war imp

Victory for the East End Angels is the final book in the East End Angels series by Rosie Hendry. It can be read as a standalone but I think you will appreciate the characters a lot more if you have read the other books first.

Bella, Winnie, and Frankie are the East End Angels. The series has followed their lives and loves during the second world war.

The women work at Station 75 as ambulance drivers/attendants. The war is finally coming to an end and yet the danger is in some ways worse. With the

The angels are back for the final time sadly, Frankie,Winnie and Bella, back at station 75 ,hoping the war is going to end soon. It's February 1944 in London, the characters in all this author's books have became like family to me. To share all the sad and happy moments has been as though I was in the book with them. It's been a long war and a trial waiting to see if their loved ones are safe. The other character S.O Violet Steele, Sparky,Rose and the awful Ivy have all made this book for what i ...more

“To always being friends, no matter where we are or what we do.”

Winnie, Frankie, and Bella’s journey as East End Angels ends in this fourth book of the East End Angels series. Their time together began in 1939. Together, they faced many challenges through the years as part of an ambulance station crew as the bombs rained down in London. What happens to them as the end of World War II finally nears? The long-awaited peace brings joy, and also changes.

Author Rosie Hendry has once again given us a

From The Comfy Chair Blog - https://comfychairbooks.blogspot.com/

What a charming tale of spirited, strong and determined women doing their best through the trying circumstances of the end of the war.

I read this book having not read any of the previous ones in the series and it does work well as a standalone but I do believe you’d possibly have more of an emotional connection to the characters if you had ‘lived through’ their past. I was truly swept into their world, but I believe if you are a fa

As per usual, I'm late to the party having jumped into this war-time series with the final book! Nonetheless, this was still such a great read, the author made it very easy to follow. I only wish I'd got involved sooner to experience the lives of Winnie, Frankie and Bella from the very beginning. I may just have to go back to the start just to satisfy my own curiosity.

It's clear, as I meet these ladies for the first time, that they have formed an incredible bond, having faced many challenges tog

This was my first introduction to the work of Rosie Henry. Even though Victory for the East End Angels is Book Four in the series the author managed to captivate me with her characters and I was fascinated with how the social dynamics had changed in wartime with many women taking on the roles that were formerly destined for men. Although the book can be read as a standalone, as I have proved, there were moments that I wished I knew the history more of the characters and storyline so I would whol ...more

Based on real events, where women had to step up during times of war and take on nontraditional jobs, and food and other supplies were rationed, the East End Angels are a group of ambulance staff, who do their part to support additional aspects of the war effort. They are loyal and brave, and have to overcome their own fears and put personal relationships on hold while the unknown threatens daily. If you have read one or more of the previous books in this series you will already be fans of the a ...more

Set in the last year of the Second World War, you get to sample life as it must have been in London. The V2 rockets and Doodlebugs have brought the threat of destruction right into the heart of the city and you have to marvel at the courage of the Ambulance Service who go out, no matter what, to help its victims. There is masses of period detail within the story and you appreciate how the War has affected every aspect of daily life, right down to the rationing of food. Some are driven to despe

Winnie, Frankie and Bella are back. Its 1944 and they have just gone through the blitz. They are not only worried for their own safety but that of loved ones away at war. All three work at Station 75 as ambulance women working 24 hour shifts transporting casualties to hospital and very often digging them out from the rubble of a raid. This is the fourth book in the series and whilst it could be read alone it would make more sense having read the others first and why miss out on three other crack

I previously read a book in this series, Christmas With The East End Angels ,and really enjoyed it, so I couldn’t wait to see what was in store for Frankie, Winnie and Bella this time.
The girls worked together throughout the blitz in the East End of London as ambulance workers. Their work is heartbreaking yet so essential and it has meant that the girls now have a tight, unbreakable bond. The people of the East End have seen families destroyed and homes are gone forever. Many still yearn for lov

Today I am sharing my review for Victory for the East End Angels by Rosie Hendry, which has just been released and is the last book in the East End Angels series. I read this as a standalone book and really enjoyed the brilliant characters and the glimpse into how life was for the ladies driving the ambulances during World War 2.

I love historical fiction and really enjoyed the insight during this story as to what the women at home endured whilst their men were away fighting. I instantly loved Wi

The war is not quite over yet for the East End Angels so there is lots of drama and problems for all the girls to resolve. It was fascinating to discover how life pans out for them all - perhaps not the way that they would necessarily have envisioned but as the war draws to a close, they all have to think about the next path they will take. I don't want to say any more and spoil it so you'll just have to read to the end. A lovely conclusion to the series, full of warmth and camaraderie that capt ...more
