Hi, I'm Cheryl Russell and I write in different genres especially historical fiction and thrillers. I love to get my teeth into a good thriller but love to put my characters into all sorts of challenging situations and see how they develop and grow as the story progresses. I don't know if my characters would thank me for the circumstances they find themselves in! Probably not! My characters and their situations are very real in my imagination. I long to share my characters with others that they can also see them in their minds.

This debut novel, set in the Blitz, was hard to put down. I fell in love with the characters, and so will you. Lily has had a challenging past, and we see her development. throughout the book. What else can I say? I don't want to be a plot spoiler! I am left wanting more. Lily the Sequel please. The war continues, so there must be another book here.
An extremely well written book it kept me gripped from start to finish . Well done Cheryl Russell. Would be fantastic if a sequel was to follow as I want to know more about the characters and how their future pans out. Good luck hopefully many more books coming out in the future.
I enjoyed this book. The characters were very real and the various threads of the story held my interest. I thought that the spy incident ended a bit abruptly but over all a good read.
When you read this book the characters will grip you. Laugh at Ted and Winnie's antics which they play on to make the serious and sad Lily laugh and light up her face. What is going on with the two porters that Lily overhears talking on more than one occasion? This book is an excellent read that you won't want to put down. Definitely a book to recommend to your friends.
