***** 4.5 stars, Loved it: Set in both present day and World War II, The Light Over London is a must-read.


Recommended readers:

  • If you like novels with WWII history and drama
  • If you like a historical read that ties into current times
  • If you like strong female characters

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 5/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4.5/5 overall


Cara Hargraves is recovering from divorce after moving away from London and her big city world – when she discovers a diary in the home of an estate she’s helping her new boss clean out. The old diary and items in the tin date back to World War II, including a picture of a young woman in a uniform that reminds Cara of her own grandmother’s WWII service.

In this dual plot-line story – you’ll step into two women’s shoes: Cara, an emotionally wounded young woman, and Louise, a shy and timid girl growing up in rural England during WWII. Both stories are equally moving and especially Louise, as she finds her way to help during war efforts. The Light Over London is a great historical read – telling two stories of contrasting times. It’s must-read for the New Year!
