    One thought on “The Grafton Girls”

    1. I enjoyed this look at the girls in England during WW2: definitely a tale for the girls but I liked it. Again not my usual genre but worth a read. Do it.

    2. Loved this book, such an amazing insight into the world of women in WW2!! Couldn't tear my eyes away from the page!

    3. This is a delightful story of 4 different women who meet during world war 2 in England.Diane and Myra find themselves billeted and working together at Darby House and Ruthie and Jess work together at the munitions factory, the four come together at The Grafton, a dance hall that is frequented by American GI’s.Ruthie is befriended by an American Glen; Diane is running away from a broken engagement; Myra does not want to be married to her husband Jim and has visions of a life in America and Jess [...]

    4. I just finished this novel. It was pretty easy to get through. I enjoy reading about love stories during war and this was about four women finding happiness in the midst of devastation and war. It explores how women handle the unknowing danger that lay ahead and their desperate need for comfort in the arms of a partner that could be here today and gone tomorrow. This book lacked substance but fairly light to read so I didn't mind much.

    5. This was an okayish book. The plot was predictable and there are so many stories similar to this. Story of four girls and their lives and love lives etc. But the interesting part was that the setback was during the world war. The book is definitely worth a read. But don`t get too excited cuz you might be disappointed.

    6. Predictable but appealing - a pity I somehow wound up with book 3, as (a) I hate reading out of order and (b) Groves is not available in the US.

    7. Cute and fun. Nothing special, basically chick lit, but an enjoyable read about an era I really don't know much about other than the Holocaust.

    8. As with the other books in the series, the ending arrives a little too neatly wrapped, but the careful detail to ordinary lives in an extraordinary time is richly fulfilling.
