Five years later, Viv's parents pressure her to evacuate her daughter to the countryside to keep her safe during the German bombings. She reluctantly agrees, but that decision turns out differently than Viv imagined. Joshua has returned from the United States to serve his country in the war. Somehow, much to Viv's dislike, their paths cross again.
The Lost English Girl is a heart wrenching story of betrayal, motherhood, family bonds and war. It was very well written and the characters truly drawn you in. An excellent historical fiction novel full of details and rich descriptions.
I received this book courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
