liked it

I picked this book thinking it was going to be about brides brought home by Am. GI's. Suffice it to say I was wronnng ! But I really enjoyed this story of unlikely friendships formed by five women (and some were brides !) as they were brought to the quiet countryside of England while the Germans were bombing London. Remembering that the US did not immediately enter this conflict, the women came for safety and were ... I guess "sponsored" would be the word, by a variety of folks more integrally involved in the London end of the early stages of the War. As the book progressed, the US becomes involved, a spy is suspected in their little hamlet, love, marriage, and babies join the storyline. Lots of cleverness in the solving of their problems/issues. Some surprises, a sad ending which came before the conclusion of the book, but maybe that was me.

I liked it; I didn't love it, but, reconsidering, I'll give it a 3 1/2 !
