REVIEW: 
This was my first ever read of Pam Lecky and wow she did not disappoint.  Historical fiction aside, which by the way is my favorite, Pam Lecky tells such a vivid tale of war torn Britain that will leave all the history enthusiasts longing for more.

Her Secret War follows the life of Sarah Gillespie.  She is in her home in Dublin, Ireland, when a bomb is dropped sending the whole country into disarray.  The german bombs decimate her home.  She really only has her love interest left, but he too is taken from her when he decides to enlist to fight for Britain in the war.

Sarah is left alone, not knowing what to do but feeling a tug at her heart, to jump in and help with the way, in any way she can.  She makes the decision to head to England and to do whatever she is able to, to help Britain in the war effort.

Unfortunately things don't quite go as she had planned, when her duty and loyalty is called into question.  Seems her father had quite a dark past that none were aware of and his political views and opinions, may just put her life at risk.  She is approached and asked to gather information on a possible German spy.

I wasn't quite sure how this would play out, Sarah has a bit of a temper to put it mildly, and she is not exactly the kind of girl I would see tasked with such an important matter, but I do end up enjoying her character as the story develops.  

There is action and moments of fear, but also some romance thrown in too.  All I know is that by the end of the book, I wanted it to continue.  I wanted more, and wasn't quite ready to turn the last page.

Luckily for me and many others who enjoyed Her Secret War, Pam Lecky is already working on the next called Her Last Betrayal.  I am really looking forward to that reading that one too, and I'm hoping we get to see more of Sarah in it as well.

Thank you TLC Book Tours and Avon for providing me with a copy of for review.
