Chris Karlsen's new work, The Ack-Ack Girl, is the first in her World War II series, Love and War, and serves up plenty of story on both sides of that equation in its portrayal of Ava Armstrong, the "Ack-Ack" girl of the title. And what a story it is! Chanticleer Book Reviews
"The first explosion sounded from across the river, many blocks away. Ava closed her eyes and whispered, "Thank you." A wave of guilt hit her. Part of the city was destroyed. Londoners were dying while she gave thanks. But she was grateful." This paragraph seem to set the theme for the story ahead. This book deserves a second read!:
