Another Read for Fans of The Nightingale and All the Light We Cannot See

9781501124372Everyone Brave is Forgiven, Chris Cleave, Simon, May 2016, review by Larry

A WWII story of a woman in London and a soldier on Malta, living through the worst of the Blitz and the Siege of Malta. Both characters experience the captivity of war and the fight to believe in a future.
The main characters meet and fall in love but cannot express it until later as the war winds down and they wonder how to make their love and their world go on.

The book is not All The Light we Cannot See or The Nightingale as this book concentrates on different aspects of World War II, but it is right up there close to both titles in reader interest, intensity and writing ability.  The book has some questions and answers that still haunt me.

A good insight to a class system that was beginning to feel the impact of change and coming change after the War.
