⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5/5) ⠀⠀ ⠀ This book was everything I wanted in a historical fiction. I devoured it in two days, which is CRAZY because I'm a mood reader who jumps between 5 books at once. ⠀ ⠀ The main character Raine is determined, loving and flawed. I see a lot of myself in her. Her relationship with her mother is troubled and true with the times. I appreciated the honesty and raw conversations that happened in this book. ⠀ ⠀ I listened to parts of this book via audio and the narration is top-notch. ⠀ ⠀ I also just saw that the author is writing book two of this series and that it will feature her sister Suzanne!⠀ ⠀ Thank you to Avon Books and TLC Book Tours for a review copy of this book. ⠀ ⠀ Plot: It’s 1939 and the threat of war hangs over Britain…⠀
