London, 1940. The war is raging across Europe, and 23-year-old Grace is devastated by the loss of her husband, Brian, at Dunkirk after only a year of marriage. Her secretary job at a law firm keeps her mind from dwelling on her sorrow, but when her boss, James, enlists in the air force Grace is left without work.
Alongside her best friend, Helen, Grace joins the War Office in a move that will change their lives forever. As Grace throws herself into the war effort, she must find the courage and strength to start her life over and find love again.

I mostly review books I like unless I find a really disappointing one.
Slow for most of the first 2/3 and then it really picks up. A lot of repetition of we must win this war and it felt light on research and historical content.
