I've really been enjoying time-split novels and discovered Susan Meissner's work. This book follows the heartbreaking lives of two sisters who are torn apart by the bombing of England during World War II.
The story begins with two girls being raised by a single woman who is less than optimal as a mother, and then brings the reader right into the action as bombs begin to shake their world.
Full of family intrigue, struggle, regret, and romance, the story manages to convey resilience, hope, and gives the reader more than we desired in ways we couldn't have guessed.
Beautifully written and plotted, I highly recommend this novel. It captured my full attention.
