The Girls in Blue by Fenella J. Miller #BookReview #BlogTour #Aria #NetGalley #4*

They’ll come together to do their bit for the war.

Jane Hadley has nothing to lose when she runs away to join the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force. Whatever faces her in war-torn London can’t be any worse than staying at home with her abusive father…

The city is nothing like she could have imagined, but she’s soon on the move, travelling from base to base for her top-secret training. Making plenty of new friends along the way, it doesn’t take long for Jane to embrace her growing confidence – especially under the attentive eye of dashing Officer Oscar Stanton.

Life as an independent woman is as rewarding as it is exciting, until Jane’s father tracks her down and it crashes to a halt.

Jane will need all her new-found strength to find her way back to the frontline – and to the man she’s fallen for…

Such an Enjoyable Tale!

Another excellent second world war drama – all the better for this author’s attention to detail!

While the rest of the country fears war for Jane Hadley it is a means of escape. Running away from home to join the WAAF when war is declared gets her away from her brute of a father and she embraces her new life. As soon as basic training is complete, Jane finds herself on the move culminating in top secret training. As her confidence grows, she encounters officer Oscar Stanton but before they really get their relationship on a firm footing, Jane’s father find her. Can she survive to continue with her new found career?

Such an enjoyable tale! This is an author who can always be depended on for a good, realistic storyline and she manages to get across the highs and lows of the many young women who volunteered. Excellent characterisation and an exciting storyline all add up to a thoroughly good read. I do enjoy a good saga set during the second world war, and Fenella J Miller never fails to deliver. A complete read in itself, this is beautifully written and hard to put down. Highly recommended and one I’m happy to give four stars.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and especially to Vicky Joss for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
