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. I ll be seeing youReally enjoyed reading this book couldn t put it down I feel like there should be a follow up book to it If there is could somebody tell me what the title is please This is the book I have enjoyed the most for some time The characters are really believable and the conclusion was believable A really good read Nice WWII story. 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. It was an okay kinda book Its the type of book you would take to a beach to read nothing overly traumatic happens in the book kinda reminds me of a Harlequin romance kinda novel This girl s mother dies.and leaves her a letter stating the father she grew up with was not her biological father Her Mother had been in love with a pilot during the war and that is this girl s father She left a photo of him plus his sketchbook and nothing Now the hunt is on to find himwithout even a name thats rather difficult.
