When Evie’s dreams come crashing down, she’s determined to still make something of herself in these trying times…
It is 1939 and working class Evie Bishop has received a scholarship to study mathematics at Oxford when tragedy turns her life upside down. Evie must seek a new future for herself and, inspired to contribute to the war effort, joins the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force as an Ops Room plotter.
Posted to a fighter station on the Sussex Coast, Evie befriends two other WAAFs shy, awkward May and flirty, glamorous Jess. Faced with earning the approval of strict officers and finding their way in a male dominated world, the three girls band together to overcome challenges, navigate new romances and keep their pilots safe in the skies.
But the German bombers seem to know more than they should about the base’s operations, and soon Evie, May and Jess are caught up in a world more dangerous than they ever imagined…
I really enjoyed this book. I like reading about what happened back in the day. This book is set in 1939 and is set around the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, which I found really interesting. Evie, May and Jess form a really lovely friendship when they all start work at a fighter station, they are all different women and we hear about their lives. I like reading about the war and I always seem to learn new information. Vicki writes well and has packed lots into this book. I look forward to reading Christmas with the Ops room Girls and catching up with the women to see what happens next.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
