5.0 out of 5 stars A real page-turner, 19 Jun 2014
I'm drawn to novels set in the 1930s and thought I'd enjoy this book. The setting is beautifully drawn, but what really hooked me was the engaging heroine and gripping plot - it's a real page-turner. Fab appendix about 1930s fashion at the back! I look forward to more books by this author.

A lovely and engaging romantic story. Max and Kelly are wonderful characters and destined for each other but there are plenty of plot twists and uncertainties to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The book has a warm, witty, sexy feel makes it linger in the memory as a really satisfying read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating story, 17 Jan 2012
I've always been fascinated by the work of the SOE in Occupied France, so I especially looked forwards to reading On a Wing and A Prayer - and I wasn't disappointed! The accounts of Helen's work as an undercover agent makes for a gripping read. But the dramas on the home front back in London, and Lavender Road in particular are also explored with sensitivity, humour and an assured storytelling touch. An absorbing and satisfying addition to the Lavender Road wartime novels!
