Surrounded by Books

I read historical fiction, mystery, foodie memoir, and well-crafted YA (sometimes other genres).

All the Nice Girls

All the Nice Girls - Joan Bakewell I was hoping this would be pure historical fiction, WWII, about an interesting morale building program I hadn't known about: schools adopting ships and making pen pals of the sailors, for the war effort.Then there was a whole connect to the present, family secrets, flashback plot.. wasn't too fond of that.
