It’s 1939 in Britain as the war with Germany appears a certainty. While set during the start of WWII, this is less a book about the war than a story about friendship. I’ve read the most gut-wrenching books from this era. The Whispers of War is not one of those. It doesn’t delve into the horrors of war but focuses on its impact on three young women who met in school. Marie is German born and the likelihood that she will be forced to go to an internment camp grows each day. Nora and Hazel must find a way to help. There is a dual storyline set in the present where Marie’s granddaughter travels to England to meet Nora. A nice, tender and quick read. And what a beautiful cover! Published on January 14, 2020.
