Daisy’s War by Rowena Summers – book review

Daisy's War (The Caldwell Girls Book 2)

Daisy’s War by Rowena Summers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A terrible tragedy has torn the Caldwell family apart and the Caldwell girls have split up: Imogen has joined the war effort, Elsie has married, and Daisy? Daisy has lost her way. 

Living away from home and missing her sisters, Daisy isn’t sure who she is anymore. She’s making new friends, dancing with new beaus, but everywhere she turns, she finds death. Working as a nurse and confronted with new horrors daily, Daisy finds herself wondering what the point of it all is anymore. 

As the chaos of the Second World War rages on and her own life falls to pieces, Daisy dreams of real love, of lasting friendship, and of hope for a different life… but she must look for light where she can find it. 

My thoughts:-


Thank you to NetGalley and Agora books for a digital review copy in return for my honest review.

This is the first book I’ve read by Rowena Summers so I hadn’t read the first book in the series – however this book is easy to understand without having read the first book.

I enjoyed reading about Daisy growing up during the early years of World War 2 in Weston and Bristol – it was good to read about the experiences of people outside London.

This book covers lots of issues faced by the young women during this era and was an interesting read. If you enjoy historical fiction, then I believe you will enjoy this book too.
