Great historical fiction for readers who enjoy WWII set stories. New to me author and I will definitely be reading more.
The Shopkeepers Daughter was a pleasant read, however, I was bothered with a very glaring inaccuracy. A running theme thru the book was how the main character was able to accomplish so much "before she was 21 and able to drink". The drinking age in England is 18 and was 18 during WWII.
WW II is way off. The american service men are one thing but the officers would be datling the upper class bimbos and doctirs were officers.
