Henrietta Sees It Through: More News from the Home Front 1942-1945 by Joyce Dennys

Henrietta Sees It Through: More News from the Home Front 1942-1945 - Joyce Dennys

Written as letters to a friend fighting in Europe during WWII, "Henrietta Sees It Through" follows Henrietta Brown, her family, and friends through the trials and tribulations of wartime England. Such a sweet book, it was slightly reminiscent of P.G. Wodehouse, though Henrietta and her friends are not quite as mischievous as Bertie Wooster and his friends. A very enjoyable read, even if you've not read the first volume (as I hadn't). 

 

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher, as part of the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.
