A touching war story - well told. Caroline Leech's WWII romance, WAIT FOR ME, is filled with angst and empathy as enemies become friends - and fall in love - even as they are forced to face their own fears, prejudices, losses, and desires. Romance lovers will appreciate the slow burn of forbidden first love, while history lovers will be drawn to the detailed depictions of time and place and the unique setting. And everyone will love the characters - from Lorna's pluck to Nikki's cheerful desperation, from Jock's quiet strength to Paul's tragic kindness.

WAIT FOR ME is a strong debut. The author, Caroline Leech, has an eye for romance, and and an elegant hand with detail - and suspense. A great YA read.
