it was amazing
bookshelves: british-isles, mystery, wwii

Fabulous! This story was told in pieces, skipping back and forth quite quickly between Laurel's modern quest to discover the truth about her mother, and her mother's past during WWII London. There were twists and turns throughout and just as I had scenarios figured out, she would throw in a twist and I would have to re-evaluate where I thought the story was going. So it kept my interest as the story unfolded. And the big twist at the end-yeah, I didn't see that coming. The characters in the past-Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy-were complex and interesting. I felt that Laurel, the daughter, was a little slow on the uptake at times in figuring things out, but then I kept figuring wrong, so there you go. A great story with interesting textures of London during the war.
