Mrs. Tim Flies Home
I totally enjoyed this book! It was only my 2nd D. E Stevenson book I read, and this one is even better than the first in the series. I couldn’t put it down, but I did get housework and garden work in between readings. Every aspect of the book was interesting, and of course, there is always a happy ending in her books. a link to a short biography of D E Stevenson I read the first and the last of this 4 book series (scroll down for the 4 books listed). I hate not reading books in proper order as they were written, but I have to rely on the public library which messes up the order I am able to read them when they come in the mail.
This particular series: (there were other ones too)
Mrs. Tim of the Regiment 1932
Mrs. Tim carries on 1941
Mrs. Tim gets a job 1947
Mrs. Tim flies home 1952
These 4 books are taken from her diaries . Maybe they are embellished a little, I don’t know, but I do love reading about all her characters and what goes on.
In this book the author writes a forward (is that also a preface?) telling how the diary that became this 4 book series is all true. Here’s what she wrote:
It is all true. It is true that a German plane cam down on the moor in the middle of a shooting party and the two airmen were captured. It is true that German planes came down to low level in Norfolk, and elsewhere, and used machine guns to kill pedestrians on the roads.
She must have been referring to the book in the series before this one, since those two things were not included in this book I read- Mrs. Tim Flies Home, It was something I’ve never heard of before Germans shooting on pedestrians during broad daylight!
