♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ Wow, how well do you know your parents? Interesting question, right? You may know them through and through, but what about their lives before you?
As her mother lays dying, a daughter searches for answers about her mom’s life in London during the war. She knew there must be secrets after, as a young girl, she witnessed a profound act of violence by her mom, unexplained and not spoken of thereafter. As she unlocks the mysteries one by one, she realizes that maybe they don’t know the sweet and gentle mother as well as they think they do. It’s an interesting journey!
I was amazed by the revelations and enjoyed the historical “London during the blitz” parts of the story. I will say that the latter parts of the book were the more exciting parts for me. I didn’t see this coming! Pick this one up, and let me know what you think.
