A Threeler of When We Were Young and Brave by Hazel Gaynor (Book Review/Spoiler Free)
This is going to be the first non-thriller/mystery novel that I would be reviewing but I have mentioned before to my other Social Media Accounts that I am open to reviewing other genres as well. The only thing that will be constant is that I will be reviewing the novels in 3 minutes or less.
The novel was set during World War 2.
Elspeth Kent is a teacher in China (Chefoo School) who wants to go back home to England to help with the war effort but all of her plans were changed because of the the sudden oppression of the Japanese in the country.
But it isn’t just her whose life has changed. Even the young Nancy Plummer, who is a student at the same school that Elspeth is teach at, has to face the horrible reality of the war.
This is the first Hazel Gaynor novel that I have and thank you Harper Collins and William Morrow for providing an ARC, if it wasn’t for your kindness I won’t be able to read this magnificently written novel.
This is a historical fiction that has a Second World War theme on it and the story was greatly inspired by true events and most importantly the author even incorporated her own family’s experiences.
The novel was very moving and inspiring! If you want to read something will make you cry in between but will lift your spirit up at the same time, When We Were Young and Brave has to be on your TBR List.
