“Kelsmeath, 1940” is on the surface another World War Two story, with a mixture of action and love. But unlike most stories from current writers, Westwood writes as if he lived then, and we see the beginning of the war not through the eyes of today, but through those of two teenagers on the verge of adulthood at the end of the thirties. The world is coming apart just as they are about to come together, and instead of finding each other they find themselves in a daily battle to avoid invasion. After I’d finished Kelsmeath I felt as if I’d been in the English countryside that summer, watching the dogfights in the air and wondering who would return.Was this review helpful?
