“Kitty’s War” by Barbara Whitaker begins on St. Simon’s Island, Georgia when Katherine spies something in the water. Upon investigation, she finds a very handsome man in a raft, obviously having been at sea before something terrible happened to him. A naïve young girl, she finds herself thinking of him constantly as the months pass. Against her family’s wishes, Katherine (Kitty) volunteers for the WACs for duty overseas as a nurse. She runs into the man again and this time he is an airman on duty in England, but he doesn’t recognize her as his savior. Kitty’s friend, Madge is a forward flirt and captures Ted Kruger’s attention. When Ted realizes who Kitty is, they begin a romance. However, Ted is shot down over Germany and languishes in a prison camp until his escape. Can he and Kitty get back together? Is Madge the one Ted wants?
I thought this novel was well thought out and I enjoyed the descriptive way that Ms. Whitaker moves the story along. Every time I wanted to put the book down to get something else done, I just couldn’t do it. I love war-time romances set during WW II, and I loved this book.
I received a complimentary Kindle copy of this book from NetGalley.com and was under no obligation to post a review.
