Overview

Seeking adventure, shy Kitty Greenlee joins the Women's Army Corps. In 1944 England, as secretarial support to the 8th Air Force, she encounters her dream man, a handsome lieutenant who only has eyes for her blonde friend. Uncomfortable around men, Kitty doesn't think the handsome officer could want someone like her.

Recovering from wounds, Ted Kruger wants to forget about losing his closest friends and have fun before returning to danger as a bomber navigator. When Ted recognizes Kitty as the girl who rescued him two years before, he must choose between dating the sexy blonde or pursuing quiet, serious-minded Kitty even though he knows he's not nearly good enough for her.

As the war gears up with the D-Day invasion, will Kitty and Ted risk their hearts as well as their lives?

I am typically a contemporary romance junkie. However, after reading the book blurb and some of the reviews about this novel, I knew I had to experience Kitty's War for myself. This story was quite meaningful and thought-provoking, while keeping me on the edge of my seat for most of the narrative. Barbara Whitaker is a new author for me, and I plan on reading more of her work. Even though she is not yet 21, school teacher Kitty Greenlee wants to help win the war, so she joins the Women’s Army Corps. Her older brother Milton is a solider, and Kitty wants to see for herself that he is alright. The secretarial pool welcomes Kitty with open arms, even though the women that bunk and work with her keep their distance. Kitty is smart and quickly moves up through the enlisted ranks. Lieutenant Ted Kruger is a bomber navigator. He loves his job, but the danger is overwhelming, especially after getting injured and losing his crew during an attack. Kitty has always been Ted's lifeline, even before he was drafted. Now they are fighting the same war and falling in love simultaneously. After ten months in a POW camp, Ted is finally free. His goal is to find Kitty and make her his forever. Kitty and Ted share a special bond, and they ache for one another when they are a part. Living so far away from each other poses many obstacles, so positive thinking and snail mail helps to keep them going. Kitty matures a lot during her time overseas, while Ted realizes that love is worth fighting for. Overall, this is a solid read with likable characters and some intense situations.
