World War II set historical fiction is my jam Between book reviews and on my own I have read or listened to about ten for the year so far What drew me to jump on the tour for The Way to London was that they main character has been living in Singapore for the past few years and having spent time there for work years ago I am always looking for books set there Although we don t spend long in Singapore before Lucy is banished to London for the indiscretion of a romance with the son of one of her stepfather s local business contacts it s always nice to read about the Raffles Hotel and other places I recognize Beyond the initial Singapore location I didn t settle into the story in The Way to London easily mainly due to the main character who is not immediately likable She is spoiled defensive and has trouble controlling her impulses especially when it comes to things that will annoy her distant socialite mother and lecherous stepfather It is the interactions with these characters that made me thaw to Lucy it becomes than understandable what drives her behaviors Once Lucy arrives in the English countryside to her aunt s estate taken over by the government for use as a hospitalrehabilitation center for soldiers she meets 12 year old truant Bill Smedley escaping back to London to find his mother Lucy wanting to get there herself in hopes of getting to America to start a new life by finding an acuaintance staying there on his way back to Hollywood sets off with Bill and her experiences on the road with him begin to change her With these changes she becomes a better person and I found myself rooting for her happiness and on board with the rest of the book There is romance but the heart of the story is about growing up and Lucy s coming of age and it is well told There is a good balance of humor Bill especially is a pip and once Lucy grew on me I appreciated her wit and sarcasm some action and a touch of poignancy although coming off of a round of heavier books I was happy that The Way to London leans to the lighter side of war historicals Lucy and Bill have uite a journey and I was happy to travel along with themYou can see my review as well as a recipe for a classic Gin Rickey inspired by the book on my blog post A review copy of The Way to London was provided to me by the author and the publisher Harper Collins via TLC Book Tours I was not compensated for this review and as always my thoughts and opinions are my own

I looked forward to reading this book I am a fan of these types of books As the saying goes the first impression is the most important Well my first impression of Lucy was not a great one I found her to be inconsiderate disrespectful and childish I am glad that her step father and mother finally took a stand against Lucy and sent her away even if it took an incident to make them act After that incident I thought I would try to be open minded towards Lucy thinking that she would change for the better Which she did but it was a slow change One that I would and expect It is not like I expected Lucy to change overnight Although I had another problem It was the rest of the story and the other characters I found no connection to any of it Thus it made it made for me to want to stick with this book and continue until the end Not that I did as I only made it about half way I lost my way to London
