I chose it because, although I feel I've read enough stories set in the Second World War to last me a lifetime, the positive comments I've read about it on BookCrossing suggest that I might be worth making an exception for this one!
From Google Overview: "Emmeline Lake and her best friend Bunty are doing their bit for the war effort and trying to stay cheerful, despite the German planes making their nightly raids. Emmy dreams of becoming a Lady War Correspondent, and when she spots a job advertisement in the newspaper she seizes her chance; but after a rather unfortunate misunderstanding, she finds herself typing letters for the formidable Henrietta Bird, renowned advice columnist of Woman’s Friend magazine."
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
This looks interesting. It's on top of the pile to read next.
The following comment was borrowed from an online reviewer and sums it up well -
"To me Emmeline is a cross between Bridget Jones and Bertie Wooster, stumbling from one faux-pas to another, while talking the vernacular of schoolgirls"
I feel that it would be useful to read the Author's Note first as it sets the scene for the story. This is found at the end of the book.
