Secret of a Charmed Life

by

indexKendra, a college history major spending a term at Oxford, is interviewing Isabel, a 93 year old who survived the Blitz, for a term paper. But she is shocked to discover that Isabel is not the woman’s real name, nor is she 93. Susan Meissner spins the story of two sisters separated after a relocation from London to the British countryside in 1940. The novel is written in alternating time frames between the 1940s and the present, and provides a window into wartime England from a young person’s point of view. I enjoy this author’s writing and would definitely recommend this novel for fans of historical fiction.
