Review: COVENTRY by Helen Humphries

coventrySandra from FRESH INK BOOKS recently reviewed Coventry by Helen Humphries.  Here’s a snippet:

In deceptively simple language Humphreys here portrays the night of November 14, 1940 and the bombing of Coventry , England during World War Two. Harriet has been a widow since the First World War. Through her eyes we experience unending hours of destruction and terror, but there is kindness and love too. She starts out on fire watch on the roof of Coventry Cathedral, which does not survive, and ends up with Maeve who searches for her son throughout the city that is burning and reduced to rubble.

  1. I’ve never heard of this book – it is going on my TBR list for sure b/c my Gram lived in Coventry during the bombing!

  2. I’ve seen a couple reviews of this in the last few months, and it’s definitely a must-read for me. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!
