New Recruits at Goodwill House
Fenella J Miller
About the book...
There are new residents at Goodwill House – WAAF drivers Camilla ‘Millie’ Cunningham and Diane Forsyth, both eager to do their bit for the war effort and excited to be helping the brave boys who fly.
And when Millie meets dashing and heroic Spitfire pilot Ted Thorrington, they strike up an instant connection. But with Hitler gaining more ground in Europe, there is danger brewing across the Channel in Dunkirk and Ted is required to fly more and more dangerous sorties, risking his life every time.
With their hearts and lives on the line, the courage of the girls in blue will be tested like never before…
The thing about Historical Fiction is that no matter how many you’ve read, there’s always a new take to be had, a new viewpoint to see it from, another story to tell.
I enjoyed the story within the story effect, seen here. It wasn’t just about the war efforts, but about the lives of these “girls in blue” and those around them. We’ve got the spirit of Goodwill House threatened thanks to the passing of the owner, and the unfortunate lack of means left behind. We have the new residents, both looking forward to their tour of duty, and yet unsuspecting of the atrocities of war they will have to withstand, nay conquer along the way. We have the affairs of the heart that are bound to blossom in times of hardship in order to bring some beauty to the ugliness of the events unfolding, and yet with those glorious feelings there is the added worry as their heart goes with them on every mission.
So you see, fair readers, it was as much a story of the actions taken in the name of protecting your fellow man, as it was of the laughter, love, and memories made despite the bad times. It reminds us that we are all stronger than we think, smarter than we give ourselves credit, and built with the capacity to be fierce in nature while loving with all of our hearts.
