What a sweet, perfectly romantic book. It was less than 50 pages long so you wouldn’t think you would have much time to become invested in the characters, but the way this was written made the characters feel like friends almost immediately.
I’ve never read any of Cathy Bramley’s books before, but I decided to read this one while I was sat on my train waiting to set off from the station, and it was such a quick and engrossing read that I finished it as the train was pulling away.
Set in World War Two, we are following the story of Jenny Hallam, a nurse, and Will Rose, a pilot whose plane fell out of the sky and left him with horrific burns.
Will, probably fairly, has been quite a recluse since he arrived in the hospital, but it seems like nurse Jenny might be the one to pull him back out of his shell. But she’s not having an easy life either, with kids at home and a husband in the war that hasn’t written to her for weeks, she has many things on her mind.
Through this short story, we see events in Jenny and Will’s lives unfold, taking us along on a story of heartbreak and eventual happiness for both characters.
As I mentioned before, I’ve not read any of Cathy Bramley’s books before, but if a book this short can make me so emotional, I’ll be on the lookout for more!
