What a bittersweet book taking place in Angels Cove, Cornwall. This is a historical fiction book unusually placed in three time lines. You have Juliet, Katherine and Juliets journals. The plot is so well developed with believable and interesting, likable characters. The carefully going back and forth made this book more relevant. I usually don’t like bouncing back and forth in timelines but it was needed to get the feel and write this book. This book is have Juliet and her amazing story is told from her point of view about the women who flew the ATA during WWII. Thewomen who could fly were trained to fly the airplanes the Britist flew as there were not enough men to do this. Katherine gets a letter from Uncle Gerald with an invite to Angel Cove. The first night she found the journal and begins to read Juliets beautiful story of love, loss, friendship and hardship. Then later to realize Juliet is still alive. This is a must listen to book with the narration done by Stephanie Beattie. Stephanie with the British accent draws you in and maintains your interest. I highly recommend this book.
