"After a crushing betrayal by the man she loves, Gillian Gibbons flees to her family home for a much-needed escape, but when she finds an old photograph of her grandmother in the arms of a Nazi officer, Gillian's life gets even more complicated. Rattled by the discovery, Gillian attempts to unravel the truth behind the photos, setting her off on an epic journey through the past... 1939. England is on the brink of war as Vivian Hughes falls in love with a handsome British official, but when bombs begin to fall and Vivian's happy life is destroyed in the blitz, she will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves... As Gillian learns more about her grandmother's past, the old photo begins to make more sense. But for every question answered, a new one takes its place. Faced with a truth that is not at all what she expected, Gillian attempts to shine a light not only on the mysteries of her family's past but also on her own future."--Publisher description.

When your first thought after finishing a book is, thank goodness it is finished, it gets one star. Perhaps because the book promo hypes the author as a best selling author, the expectations are far above the quality of this work. Amazon Kindle is really pushing her writing.

The plot is predictable, containing all of the events that seem to be in many of the recent WWII novels: Bombing of London, aggressive American GI's in England, Normandy invasion, freeing of Paris, VE Day, etc. The dialog is clunky.

This is the second novel I've read by this author and I will not read additional books by her.

A solid offering in the WW II Historical Fiction genre. Lead character is female(s). It places in a category beneath The Nightingale, Salt to the Sea and All the Light We Cannot See.
