The series of books always have one main character and in this book she is the very brave and talented especially when it comes to flying planes and she is Kitty Pargeter.
Kitty is a lovely character who is originally from Argentina, she has been educated in England and along with her best friend Charlotte we first meet them receiving a rather loud lecture as they were flying planes under the Severn Bridge which is a good indicator of what sort of girls Kitty and Charlotte are. Charlotte has been Kitty's best friend from their early school days and soon they are to be related as Charlotte is engaged to Freddie Kitty's brother. Freddie and his best friend Roger are also main characters in this book.
Why I love this series is mainly because I love the characters and I especially like how the author Ellie Dean lets me as a reader get to know them throughout the series. From the loveable rogue Ron to the dear Mrs Finch who everyone loves and treats her like she is their own personal Grandmother, not forgetting Harvey the dog and even Harvey has his own love story to tell!!
The story is indeed based on Kitty and how she meets Peggy and Peggy spreads her love and friendship even further, as always we miss nothing of the Reilly family and their many sacrifices for the war.
Once again the book is based on the era of the Second World War and I loved how the author Ellie Dean used historical facts throughout the book. Within this book the sacrifices of the Canadian army was made known and through Kitty I had a brief glimpse into the lives of the girls in the A.T.A. (Air Transport Auxiliary).
I am happy to recommend this brilliant book to anyone like myself who not only likes historical fiction but fiction which is made real through wonderful writing which is brought to us by Ellie Dean and her gift of storytelling.
Through the war. At least she survived the crash
In the aeroplane she was transporting to another
Air base. She was lucky to survive. And although
She lost part of her leg. She did well. And was
A very down to earth tale during the war years
It was lovely to read. Lots going on in it. And
At times couldn't put it down . Had to find out
How Freddy got on .kitty's Brother but lucky for
Him he survived his crash over Germany. And
Managed to get back to Britain. All the girls with
Peggy at Bay view were very good for her. And
Loved Ron and his dog Harvey. He sounded such
A character. And every one got on well with everybody. Well kitty went to live at Bay view
Thanks to Peggy. And Kitty met her Brothers
Friend and successfully married and got her
Artificial leg in the end. Very good book
Homely and seemed like you were living part
Of it with them. I always seem to get in and.
Live the part of it. With these people within
It seems real though i know it's not. But they
Seem real .while reading about there lives during
The read of this book. Really nice book enjoyed
It very much..Thanks Ellie Dean read a few of
Your books .And have enjoyed them .Very homely. Peggy makes the Great Land lady.
Or landlord. If Bay view. Thanks enjoyed this
Centered around a boarding house in the seaside town of Cliffehaven during the years of World War II, this wonderful series brings a cast of characters to life - mother-hen Peggy, her mischievous old rogue of a father-in-law, Ron, sweet little Cordelia Finch, the rambunctious family dog Harvey... From the 1st book in the series, I honestly felt immediate affection for these people and I have very much enjoyed every moment of each book so far. They are easy to read, without compromising the quality of writing and I'd definitely recommend them, especially if historical/WWII fiction is your thing.
My only complaint is that (according to the authors website) now I have to wait until the New Year for the next instalment of this touching, enjoyable saga!
"Some Lucky Day (Beach View Boarding House #7) by Ellie Dean is a great book! I read it two days and I wished that it lasted longer. The storyline and characters were great! I can't wait for book 8 to come out!
