Blind Date with a Book #1

Last week, Ebru from Ebs And Her Reads started a new weekly tradition: Blind Date With a Book Thursday. Even though I didn’t guess the identity of the book she was describing – my fault for not having read enough novels set during World War II – it was a lot of fun and I thought… why not?

So here’s my first Blind Date With a Book Thursday post!

The rules are simple:

You choose a book --> You write a few clues that will help people identify it --> You ask people to guess the title of the book, including the bloggers that have inspired you to join --> You later reveal the identity of the book

Ready? Here we go…
  • I was published in 2015
  • I was written by a female British writer
  • I am set in England and Ireland but the States make a brief appearance too
  • I have a dual narrative – I’m set partly just before England declares war on Germany in 1939 and partly in the 1970s
  • I am about love – mostly. Some people put me in the ‘historical romance’ box
  • Domestic violence is one of my themes
  • Among my pages you find mean nuns in a convent, a little like in the film Philomena
Any guesses? Leave your answers in the comments below and come back after 4pm to find out if you were right.


  1. Hmmmm... it's the nuns that are throwing off... I was thinking maybe "The Alice Network" but I'm not sure 🤔

    1. Not the right guess, I'm afraid. On the plus side, that book is being added to my wish list!
