Book 1 in the brand new Goodwill House series by bestselling author Fenella J. Miller
A Fantastic Start to a New Series!
Another fabulous tale from an author who knows how to hook her readers and reel them in!
Lady Joanna Harcourt and her daughter Sarah have been very sheltered in their lives so far at Goodwill House, but now that Lord Harcourt is off fighting in France, they are having to fend for themselves and discovering a lot of things they’ve been shielded from – and not all to the good. With limited finances, they need to come up with some way of keeping their home and allowing Sarah to follow her dream of becoming a doctor. Flight Lieutenant Angus Trent is seeking accommodation for WAAF’s sent unexpectedly to the nearby RAF base, and that may just help with Sarah and Joanna’s monetary issues; however, Lady Harcourt may take some persuading but Sarah is one determined young woman who has her sights set firmly on success. Angus has only admiration for this young lady – he has never met her like before!
I do love a WWII based series, and Fenella J Miller really knows how to write them! This is a fantastic start to what promises to be a great new saga. The characters are beautifully created and developed; the storyline is entirely believable and so very interesting! Packed with domestic war details and the decisions which families were forced to make, this is a gripping story and a fine stand-alone read. The best thing, of course, is that it is the first in a new series and I am so looking forward to the next one. Well-written as always, this easily deserves a full house of shining stars and my hearty recommendation.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Rachel Gilbey for my spot on this tour; this is – as always 0 my honest, original and unbiased review.
