Cute story, a bit too rah rah British spirit (not uncommon for books about the “Homefront” during this period - easy, uncomplicated tack, which doesn‘t need to be further questioned in the genre), but an overall fun story with likeable characters
A young woman wants to become a journalist and instead finds herself working as a typist for a women‘s advice column where “unpleasantness” is not discussed. In WWII London during the Blitz, there is plenty of unpleasantness to discuss. As Emmy and her friends try to navigate love, friendship, and fire brigades, life continues on. This has the perfect blend of humor and tragedy, bravery and fear. The characters are great.
