Keep Calm, Carry On & Drink Tea
The Land Girls Of Goodwill House by Fenella J Miller is a marvelous historical novel that I thoroughly enjoyed. It is part of the Goodwill House series and can be read as a stand-alone. For maximum enjoyment and character progression, I recommend reading the books in order.
I loved meeting up with old friends as once more the doors of Goodwill House are thrown open. This time it is to accommodate land girls who enter as strangers but soon become friends. Lady Harcourt hands out hospitality and care with love.
The action is set in 1940 at the height of the Blitz. Goodwill House is in the Kent countryside, near an airfield and on the flight path to London. The German bombers create an atmosphere of terror at times, and are seen as an inconvenience at others, disturbing well needed sleep. Fenella J Miller has perfectly captured the fear and also the stoicism as Britons keep calm and carry on. The humble cup of tea revives many a wilting soul.
Morality is skewed in times of war. Love and liaisons are grabbed today as tomorrow is not guaranteed.
We see the importance of facing our fears, whatever they may be. Sometimes our fears threaten to overwhelm us but as we face them, they diminish.
I love rejoining the residents of Goodwill House where a warm welcome is always guaranteed. I cannot wait for more visits in this smashing series.
