    This is about a woman who finds out when her mother died that her natural father was an American flyer pilot during WWII The father was shot down over France, leaving the WAAF mother pregnant Fearful of her future, she married the boy next door who pretended Juliet was his own child Naturally, the father survived, and returned to find his sweetheart had forgotten him very quickly Unlike most books, however, he returned nobly to America and Juliet s mother made the best of things with her h This is about a woman who finds out when her mother died that her natural father was an American flyer pilot during WWII The father was shot down over France, leaving the WAAF mother pregnant Fearful of her future, she married the boy next door who pretended Juliet was his own child Naturally, the father survived, and returned to find his sweetheart had forgotten him very quickly Unlike most books, however, he returned nobly to America and Juliet s mother made the best of things with her husband, leaving only a note and photo to clue Juliet in, after she is gone

    Sweet as sugar candy I didn t want to put it down This has to be the best of light but smart World War II English romance novels.

    Memory LaneMargaret Mayhew writes wonderful evocative stories that leave you feeling as if you had shared in the experiences of her character s I also like the conclusions that both wrap up the story in its present sense but leaves something open in your mind so you can personalise the epiogue.

    Well this wasn t exactly the Romance novel that I was expecting when I bought this book, but it was a nice, well written sentimental WWII novel about a woman s search for the American airman who fathered her.There were just a couple of nit picky little things that jolted me out of the story for a minute but they really are minor I just couldn t figure out how Mrs Leighton managed to serve all the food she did when food was rationed so strictly Maybe she had an agreement with the quartermaster Well this wasn t exactly the Romance novel that I was expecting when I bought this book, but it was a nice, well written sentimental WWII novel about a woman s search for the American airman who fathered her.There were just a couple of nit picky little things that jolted me out of the story for a minute but they really are minor I just couldn t figure out how Mrs Leighton managed to serve all the food she did when food was rationed so strictly Maybe she had an agreement with the quartermaster on the base shrug The other little thing that bumped me was how unmannerly both Juliet and Jose were on the phone Other than that, it was great
