Mrs. Braithwaite is a busybody who ends up heading off to see her daughter only ends up rescuing her. I loved the characters. A great read!

The First Day of the Blitz: September 7, 1940 | Peter Stansky, Professor Peter Stansky
post image

On 7th September 1940, the first day of what became known as the Blitz, a bomb landed in Canning Town. It didn‘t detonate, and people living nearby were evacuated to a local school, from where they were to be bussed out. Administrative errors, wartime chaos and bureaucracy resulted in the buses never arriving. The school was hit by a bomb 3 days later. 600 people were killed.

Wasn't sure what I was going to get with a novel about spies set in 1941 London but it ended up being about mother-daughter relationships, spies, Nazis, and reevaluating pre-conceived notions. Feeling was more like a cozy mystery than a gritty war novel. Will be reading more by this author.

The Chilbury Ladies‘ Choir is a great WWII historical fiction so I had high hopes for this. It didn‘t go in the direction I thought, in the best way possible. Mrs. Braithwaite goes to London in 1941 to visit her daughter, but she‘s missing. She becomes an unlikely spy, along with her daughter‘s landlord, Mr. Norris, as they try to find Betty, who turns out to be a spy working for the government. This is a heartwarming story & reminds us of all ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 Of the victims of the Blitz, and shows another side of the war that we maybe don‘t think about much anymore. Worth reading if you are a fan of historical fiction. Sometimes a little far-fetched but definitely a lot of fun. 4⭐️ 3w

This book was long and hard. I definitely know more about WWII in the Pacific and I learned a lot about Japan that I didn‘t know before. War is always a tragedy, no matter the cause, and Bradley nicely lays out the wounds inflicted by both Japan and the US and doesn‘t shy away from our own bad choices. An important read. I need some fluff now. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book 7/30 for #bfcr2

This book holder is seriously the best $10 I ever spent. Life. Saver.

Karkar Do the plastic arms adjust for smaller books? 4w
Hestapleton @Karkar the distance between them doesn‘t adjust, no. I tried it with a mass market paperback and while it doesn‘t work as well, it still holds the pages! 4w
Redwritinghood I have this one, too. It is great for the price. 4w
Hestapleton @Redwritinghood it‘s such a huge help for large books that don‘t fit neatly in your hand. 4w
