Within this book the main characters include Polly who has to say goodbye to her darling daughter Alice, as her mother and sister is taking Alice along with her cousins to safety in Canada for the duration of the war. There is also a Polish girl, sister of Alex who we met in the last book who was killed in action her name is Danuta a girl with so many hidden qualities but she soon shows what she is truly capable of. Danuta is like no other girl at that age she has seen things that no-one should ever have to experience but she has faced the tragedies in war torn Poland and many other countries as she fled from the Nazi's. But as always we are given enough background information about the characters therefore it is impossible to stop reading until I get to the last page to see what happens to each of the occupants of Beach View.
Why I love Ellie Dean as an author she has a gift of showing the readers the scenes she paints using words, as a reader I can see through her words what the devastation and heartache people faced in a daily way throughout the Second World War. She also has a gift of giving us characters which will touch the reader so much that personally for me I cannot wait until I get the next book for myself to see what is happening within the walls of Beach View Boarding House.Read more ›
I wasn't disappointed (although I do wish that the publishers would do a little research on the uniforms and styling of WW2..the cover photo is dire!)and I do hope it's not the last we hear from Beach View guesthouse and it's residents.
I think Ellie Dean has a very nice writing style, and captures the spirit of the era beautifully.
It's a really good book once I started I didn't want to put it down.
The story's brilliant and made me cry at times.
I'm just about to buy the third book so can't wait to carry on with the story.
To have the books in a definite chronological order would be of great benefit.
Polly stays with Peggy at Beach View boarding and makes many friends including Danuta a your Polish girl who has had more than her fair share of tragedy and has a secret of her own.
A very good book and can't recommend enough
