Favorite uotesReady or not we re on our way to England We just went through six weeks of training for these jobs I had to learn to play badminton for the love of God There s no turning back nowI realized I was in a much better mood than when I arrived I was supposed to be the one boosting their spirits but instead that s exactly what these men had done for me Sometimes morale was a two way streetmy heart was aching in ways that felt very familiar and yet so different It turns out you can care for two men at the same time but you never care for them in the exact same way We re off the coast of a place where thousands of American men died And we re dancing she said suinting and tilting her head looking out across the water It feels a little off don t you think I ve thought about that I said nodding leaning over the railing But honestly I think any of the men killed here would say Damn Hitler Play that American music and dance It gives these men some hope and cheers them up Helps them fight another day The beach was a haunted obstacle course of foxholes concrete pillboxes and debris The captain was right You can feel the ghosts I got goose pimples on my arms again when she said it because it was true There was a heaviness to the air that had nothing to do with the dustDick kept talking as we drove in a trance giving us the play by play of all that had happened to him like a confessional We couldn t have stopped him if we had tried And from the way he was going on I knew that he would be haunted by the images of that day until he was an old manThe front is all around us it s not one straight line marked by barbed wire and a big signMy ReviewIn addition to top notch entertainment this book was eye opening and surprisingly educational I had no idea that Red Cross volunteers performed these functions It sounded rather frivolous at first driving around in trucks to cook and serve doughnuts and coffee to soldiers in battlefield and training encampments however they did so much than that Heinously nicknamed Doughnut Dollies they assisted the soldiers with writing letters home entertained them with music provided a welcome break from the horrors of war with snacks candy and hygiene supplies provided a kind personal touch while talking and listened to them about their experiences and news from their families at home provided comfort and gentle reassurance to those coming off the battlefields and POW camps helped them exchange information to their friends between compounds although they weren t nurses they willingly helped in a pinch with the wounded and anything else they could possibly do to lift morale I was thoroughly engaged with this adventurous poignant profoundly moving and thoughtfully written story and was not surprised at all to learn that the author had performed a massive amount of research and had based her manuscript on actual events and archived writings of the brave and intrepid women who dared such hazardous feats The storylines were beautifully crafted and expertly paced I adored these spunky characters and greatly admired their grit and sacrifice Ms Healy s writing was freuently emotive and tapped all the feels multiple times with considerable agility yet was easy to follow and totally transportive I instantly fell into a 1944 time machine and was completely immersed in their story living and working right beside the three brave Bostonians Fiona Viv and Dottie I could feel the rumble of the bomb blasts as well as their bone weary fatigue hear the jazz music playing and smell the pungent and permeating scents of their cigarettes as well as the endless batches of doughnuts they tirelessly created The author s magical word skills were deft yet oceans deep I also felt their excitement fear and profound heartache My eyes stung and my throat constricted than once at the horrific losses and moving encounters they exchanged with their new friends and frightened soldiers Any writer who can move my cold heart to such extremes deserves a ten star rating

Thank you to NetGalley for the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review25 stars with 1 star added for the idea and research I wanted so badly to love this book The description was fantastic all the ideas were there but the execution was lacking The writing seemed stilted and forced from the beginning and although the characters DID grow throughout the war they all particularly Fiona were shallow and repeated themselves endlessly throughout the book The exceptions to this were Jimmy and Mrs Tibbetts who had real backstories and motivations Several of the plot points too seemed forced as though the author had several ideas she wanted to string together before wrapping up the novel almost too neatly Overall I loved the idea and I did learn about the Doughnut Dollies and the involvement of the American Red Cross in WWII but the book itself was unsatisfying
