So.. I think it‘s time I stop trying to like WWII fiction. 🤣. I did like the way this book was plotted. Lots of surprises and twists.. but in between those I found the story pretty slow and boring (and sometimes a bit confusing). Once part 2 started, the book picked up.. but I really did not like the ending. And so many have said this book made them cry, but I was just mad!

Melissa_J I can‘t get enough WWI fiction, but I also have a lot of trouble with WWII fiction. I have no idea why. 5mo

My heart is so full after finishing this amazing story! Maddy‘s and Queenie‘s friendship is one for the ages. I want to rush out and learn a new language - I want to jump into a little propeller plane and fly away into the sunset! Mostly, I want to spend more time with Queenie and Maddy.

This was a slow for read for me, but I really enjoyed this unique look at WWII. I don't think I have ever read a war story from the perspective of a female spy and a female pilot. The format was also unique, told in journal enteries, reports, and hurried notes.

Two young women from totally different backgrounds are thrown together during World War II: one a working-class girl from Manchester, the other a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a wireless operator. Yet whenever their paths cross, they complement each other perfectly and before long become devoted friends.

#ReadingResolutions #MultipleNarrators

I believe there are two narrators in this book, Maddie and Julie. I'm bummed as I was on hold for the e-book for ages and since it came in, I've barely had time to even start it and it's due back soon. Back on the hold list I go. Once again, so many 📚📚📚📚📚so little time.😬

Found this fan art online on Pinterest but couldn't track it back to the artist. Still, I liked it so much I had to use it. 💜

Caterina You have a kindle, right? If you put it on airplane mode the book will never disappear. That‘s how I manage to finish all my library ebooks - sometimes you just need a few extra days or weeks to get it done! 😉 2y

This book made me cry! It wasn‘t ideal - a massive twist occurred while I was driving to an appointment (I listened to the audiobook) and I bawled my eyes out, then had to explain myself to a couple of concerned reception staff 😂 I enjoyed the writing style and the way the multiple narratives overlapped to come together and become clear in the end. I read The Pearl Thief first, which added to my reading experience. Recommend. #ihavetoldthetruth

I picked this book up ages ago in an Audible sale, and finally got to it for the friendship prompt for #Booked2018.

Such a great story... well-written, filled with action, and totally heartbreaking. I love historical fiction, and WWII era stories are favorites of mine, so this was a perfect choice for me. Both narrators are really good as well!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

I really enjoyed this book. I love reading anything set during WWII. I enjoyed the characters - the main character, "Verity", was such a smartass! ?The story of her friendship with Maddie and all of the sacrifices they both made for the war was heartbreaking, because you know so many things like this happened. ?The only thing stopping me from giving it 5⭐️ is it got bogged down in airplane mumbo jumbo quite a bit. Still, a solid 4⭐️from me!

Carleneishere I liked when Queenie tried to glaze over the airplane mumbo jumbo 😏 My husbands a pilot and he was very impressed with the accuracy of the book 2y
