way Moving back into her hometown to restart her life after a painful divorce Cara Hargraves works on estate inspections appraisals and sales Her interest in all old things and historical treasures take up most of her time as she studies over manuals and catalogs during work as well as on her own free time Isolating herself from others and trying to make a new home she hardly seeks time for socialization of any kind nor gives her new cute neighbor any thought At one of her on site assignments Cara stumbles upon an old tin with a diary in it that was kept from the estate sale itself With

diary is so they can return it to the familyAs the novel switches viewpoints between Louise and Cara it becomes a connected network of similarities and revelations balanced with moments of the women s relationships failures and successes If you have been fooled like me by the blurb on the book that states For fans of the Lilac Girls or The Nightingale let me say that in my opinion that is not exactly true I am an absolute fan of the Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly and the tragic story of the Rabbit Girls at Ravensbrueck so much though that I have done further reading on the subject and suggested readings from the back of that book And this novel was nothing like the atrocities that happened at Concentration camp For fans of The Nightingale it may hold a bit closer of a match but again the direct contact and influence of German soldiers in town and their violence was a missing piece in this novel However The Light Over London is a beautiful romantic read that takes place around during the WWII and holds it s own for a great sweeping story that touches on the subject of woman in the military during the war Specifically the Ack Ack Girls This was a legitimate branch of ladies that was sent to assist gunners to target in on German planes to shoot them out of the sky from the ground So as it goes I went and looked up some info on these brave ladies and will attach it at the bottom To gather my thoughts and sum it up this novel is beautiful and touching The romance is sweet and slow and I don t read romance novels normally I fell for the blurb expecting something different But I was pretty smitten This book ended up being the one I wanted to read in the tub with some bubbly and the one that kept me up late at night reading The conclusion is sweet not everything is a happy ending but it checked all the boxes of closing the different plot endingsonly for me to wish I could read on So already missed are the characters and this book will be one of my faves for its own flavor not to stand in the shadow of another Romance haters beware Romance lovers embrace This novel is beautiful EnjoyI received a digital copy of this title from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review All opinions are my own Thank you Photos and articles on my website
