Since the first time I read Bluebirds by Margaret Mayhew I have been a huge fan. I bought all her books I could find and pre-ordered her new ones. So I was very disappointed when I read The Last Wolf. For anyone expecting another Bluebirds or The Crew,this will be a let down.
There was no romance, no real relationship between Stroma and Reinhard. In fact, I think they met about three times altogether throughout the book. Reinhard didn't appeal to me at all as a person. By the end of the story I couldn't have cared less whether he survived the war or not.
At times the book read like a 'How To.....' manuel for piloting a submarine. I just felt like the story galloped along and was leaving me behind.
All Mayhew fans will want to read it of course, so a small piece of advice. Wait for the paperback. For the story, the price of the hardback is not worth it.

I liked the fact that it wasn't the usual wartime romance, the hero was in the Kriegsmarine and the heroine was in the WRNS, but their love survived the war. I would have liked to know more about Stroma's life however, and also what their life together was like when he came back to Scotland---I guess the unpleasant Hamish had the shock of his life to find his new brother in law and his nephew's father was his old enemy!

My favourite Margaret Mayhew book! I spent a week on Islay with two good mates, touring all the distilleries, so many of the places mentioned in the book were familiar to me; in fact we were domeciled in the hotel at Port Askaig. The story was fascinating and kept me up reading in bed to the early hours of the morning for three nights in a row. Well done, Margaret !

A different sort of wartime romance 15 July 2012
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Margaret Mayhew writes some marvelous wartime romances; but `The Last Wolf' stands apart.
The wolf of the title, is not the animal, but taken from the name given to the groupings of German U-boats who hunted the convoys sailing from North America to England in WWII. The story captures the mood and the feelings of the people pre WWII - 1936 through the war and its aftermath.
It is always interesting and good to see war from the other side's perspective and this book accomplishes that.

This is the story of a young English girl, Stroma staying with her grandparents on the island of Islay. She meets a young German boy sailing with his father and brother. He in turn convinces her to write to him, and we see their friendship grow through the years until the war breaks out and he becomes a U-boat captain.
Mayhew does a marvelous job in conveying what many Germans felt and why they fought even if they did not support the politics of their leaders. We learn much about life on a sub and life for a noncombatant in London
There is one mention - a comparison to a flying saucer made in 1945, but that was not a term used until 1947.

However this is a book that accomplishes the twists and turns of a wartime romance, the dangers of war and achieves growth and believability in the characters, both the main and minor ones. One is not able to predict where the plot will lead- it is one of the better wartime romance I have ever read.

I love Margaret Mayhew's books and this one did not disappoint!
As I am from Scotland it was good to be familiar with the islands
she was writing about, although that is certainly not necessary
because her writing is excellent.
