A poignant and charming WWII story that occurs in England during the Blitz. Emma is trying to serve during wartime but really yearns to be a war journalist! But she has no experience! She does find a job typing for Mrs. Bird who responds to letters from newspaper customers. Mrs. Bird is particular though and has strict guidelines about what kind of letter she will answer. And of course that causes a dilemma for Emma. Pearce has woven a lovely tale of friendship, love, loss and all with a sense of humor and grit that only the Brits can have. I thoroughly enjoyed this heart warming journey with Emma and her friends. A great read!
