“Kitty’s War” by Barbara Whitaker

“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.
