- Lizzie Lane has a great, engaging writing style. I love historical books set around the war and was really pleased to be approved to read this one on Net Galley. Joanna has a very tough life with her step mother after her father goes to war. She finds a puppy at a time where the government are keen to reduce the amount of pets kept. Joanna finds comfort in this lovely puppy, Harry. It’s a really heartwarming book with it’s share of sadness, romance, friendships and is a real page turner thoughout. You are left wondering where it will take you next. I am really keen to read more by Lizzie Lane.
