The Waiting Hours

Well worth the wait, enjoy this book iminmensely And love the fact that it was narrated by Julie Maisey who manages to bring each character to life whether they are old or new characters.
Ellie Dean's research is also top notch, I had already read a book by Ken Small called The Forgotten Dead which is all about the raising of a amphibian tank and Exercise tiger which Made this book for me, even more fascinating to listen to yet at times so very sad especially for those families who were evacuated and the sad loss of the Service men and woman.
I myself cannot begin to know what that sort of thing feels like, but thanks to Ellie Dean's books you can understand a little. I just love hearing about Peggy and her family and cannot wait for the next book to come out. Which I think is out in January 2018 I just hope with all my heart it will be narrated by Julie Maisey.Excellent book Ellie Dean
However I do think this book should be read or listened to before Ellie Dean's previous book "until you come home " 🐭

The waiting disapointment

I am a no1 beachview fan and always happily anticipate s new book. Julie Maisey is a top rated reader and her voice is normaly evocative and imagnative which helps to bring the characters to life. Sadly this new book drags,fails to follow on from the excellent last book and speaks of characters who in the last book were POWs. beachview is secondary and few of the well known have a voice. it speaks of an important part of WW2 history but i found it overlong and sadly so disppointing.
