The Kew Gardens Girls At War by Posy Lovell

It is WWII - men are enlisting, the women are left alone, and Kew Gardens is again looking for women to help.

Daisy’s mother, Ivy, had worked at Kew Gardens during the last war, and Daisy was excited to help. She knew it would help her to not miss her husband so much.

We learn about what the Londoners went through and learn about Anderson Bomb Shelters.

We get to visit with Ivy and Louisa again and see new friendships and old ones continuing and blossoming along with all the flowers and vegetables being grown.

We also get to meet new characters that will warm your heart. 

You will love the strength of the women and how they all work together to help each other get through each of their darkest times.

And you can’t have a wartime book without love. Love that is lost because of war as well as love that is difficult to achieve because of prejudices. 

A lovely, lovely read despite heartbreaking war situations. 

This book is very enjoyable and uplifting just as the first KEW GARDENS book was.

You do not need to read the first book to enjoy this book, but my review of THE KEW GARDENS GIRLS is HERE if you want to check it out and see how Ivy's mother and Louisa warmed the  hearts of readers when they were young.  5/5

This book was given to ​me by​ the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
