My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Some Lucky Day
This book takes me back to the kind of books I read years ago, they were the only sort of books I read years ago, and now and again its nice to come back to them. They are solid, reliable, and you know you are in for a good read because you have been reading their books for years. Ellie Dean is such an author.
I love how she brings real feeling into her characters and this one is no exception.
This is back in 2nd world war time. Kitty Pargeter is a pilot.
She has to crashland and inflicts terrible injuries where she has to come to terms with she may never fly again.
Added to this, she has been told her brother has been shot.
Its a family at war, its a struggle and with emotional pain and then recovery.
