Hettys Secret WarIn 1939 with the world on the brink of war one women faces a future uncertain than she had ever imagined Perfect for fans of Katie Flynn and Cathy Sharp Georgie when the man she has always loved is sent to France on a secret war office mission every knock of the door fills her with dread of it being the feared telegram boy Many thanks to #NetGalley and ariafiction for allowing me to read and review an advance readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewI have read and enjoyed a number of other books by Rosie Clarke but this was the first book that I've read in this series As such I did find it a little confusing at first figuring out all the different characters and what their background stories were I would recommend to other readers that it might be best to start with the first book in the series before starting this oneThe story focuses on the lives of three different women Hetty Georgie and Beth All three are connected to each other at least peripherally Hetty was rather a free spirit who wasn't bothered by the norms of society at the time She had moved to Paris while young to be with a man but when the relationship ended had stayed there and established herself to the point where she felt Paris was her home than England As war loomed she delayed making a decision to return to safety in England until it was too late In a desperate last minute effort to evacuate she was exposed to the realities of war and all it's horror and ultimately stayed to fight and do her bit for the resistance in FranceAs the story begins Georgie loses her husband an older man that she had married when the man she really loved married someone else Georgie loved her husband but was never in love with him and discovers that in reality this was not enough for him leaving her with a burden of guilt When she reconnects with her original love and begins a relationship with him in spite of the fact he is still married she also throws aside convention to be with him whenever she can Her home is taken over for war purposes and she moves back to be closer to family and friends of the past When her lover goes overseas in a secret capacity she waits and worries and wonders what will happen to him Then news arrivesThe last character is Beth who was orphaned and basically raised by others who loved her and treated her as one of their own She meets a young pilot falls in love marries and is uickly pregnant She still wants to do her part in winning the war and works in London until her pregnancy makes it too difficult to continue When word comes that her husband is missing and eventually declared dead she has choices to makeThe story of these women and how they became involved in war efforts was an interesting one but didn't grab me as much as some of the other books that I have read by Rosie Clark Again I wonder if it would be different if I had read the first two books and really felt like I had gotten to know the characters
