I have a penchant for novels set in England during WWII, especially those which deal with the lives of everyday people just struggling to keep their chins up, and this novel,Telegrams and Teacakes by Amy Miller does not disappoint. Miller captures the unbreakable British spirit where family and neighbours pull together to make the best of a bad situation. Worry about the boys at the front is always top of mind while coping with air raids, loss of homes aand businesses, rationing and enjoying the occasional treat or dance. Even the way Miller describes the American and Canadian soldiers being billeted in the town rings true.
Although this is the third in Amy Miller's Wartime Bakery series it is not necessary to have read any of her other books in order to enjoy this one. By developing her, mostly, lovable characters she has also done an excellent job of leaving the door open for many more pleasurable additions to this series.
I received a free copy of this ebook via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
