My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book is set in WW2 and follows two female characters from very different classes. They develop a friendship as young children and the book on from there to finish in their twenties.
Although I found some interesting details about the “Cable Girls” I struggled to enjoy this book. Other Lesley Pearse books have captivated me from the start, and I’ve barely slept while trying to finish them. With this book, I was… bored. I don’t know why because if I think about it, it is a great concept with twists and turns and drama.
It just felt too familiar to me. I wonder if I’ve read too many Lesley Pearse books? As her books tend to follow a particular pattern, perhaps I’ve learnt to guess what’s coming next. To someone else, who hasn’t read all of her other books, I would say give this one a try. But for me, somehow it just didn’t click.
