Into the Unknown by Lorna Peel, published by Tirgearr Publishing begins in London, 1939 when war tension fills the air. In search of a job Irish nineteen-year-old Kate Sheridan is not met by her aunt and uncle at the chaotic train station in London. Crying children are boarded on an outgoing evacuation train while troops disembark from an arriving train. Kate is a day late due to a hostile English woman’s advice to take another train. Kate expects to see Irish-need-not-apply signs in shop windows and plans to pass herself off as Welch. With the blast of an air-raid siren, a helpful soldier shows her the way to a shelter.
Kate’s Aunt Helen takes the “Irish scarecrow” shopping. Not only is she outfitted from underwear to suit and high heels, but her brown hair is cut and styled into a chignon. Beautiful “Cinderella” wears makeup too heavy in the beginning, but she draws the attention of debonair Flight Lieutenant Charlie Butler who lives across the street. Charlie’s primary objective is raiding German warships, but Kate’s blue-gray eyes match his RAF uniform and his strong personality. When she asks him to explain responsibilities of WAAF (Women’s Auxiliary Air Force), he needs to hear King George VI Christmas speech first. They proceed to a wireless in the family’s bomb shelter and are both inspired. After Charlie explains duties of the WAAF, Kate considers joining. Charlie’s mother discourages him when he tells her he is dating a woman Ballycarn, Ireland. Charlie, age twenty-seven, recognizes Kate as a woman of class compared to the faster types he usually dates. Kate’s father doesn’t like the English. In spite of their families’ opinions, Kate writes to Charlie when he’s deployed and joins the WAAF.

This historical romance is set in England during World War Two. I found myself drawn into the story of Kate and Charlie, following them through the ups and downs of their relationship and of the war. I enjoyed the snippets of history intertwined with the story, there was enough for you to understand the major events taking place without it feeling like a history lesson. I felt the era was described realistically without being too horrific.

Into the Unknown helped me understand what the attitude of the English toward the Irish was like during the war. That was something I'd never really thought about before. It also brought home how difficult it was to stay in touch with loved ones during the war and how you may only see your partner once a year.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Into The Unknown is about Kate Sheridan, a young woman arriving in England on the day England declared war on Germany during World War II. She is from Ireland, her mother is English but her father is Irish and she was raised in Ireland. She wanted to go find work after college and choose England to go and live with her aunt, her mother’s sister, uncle, grandmother and nephew. She finds work but is not happy with the harassment from her boss. She also meets RAF lieutenant Charlie Butler, the young man who lived across the road from her aunt’s house. For Kate she is smitten right away, but everyone warns her away from the older man who has a way with all the young women. Charlie on the other hand is very taken with Kate as well, but she is only nineteen to his twenty-seven. He feels she is a little too young for him but he can’t stop thinking about her. He treats her different from all the other women he has dated, but will they make it last? I won’t say anymore I will let you find out.

This book was really good. This book is great for people who love historical romances. It starts when England declares war on Germany and goes through to the end of the war. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves romances as well as historical romances. The only warning I would give is there are a few sexual situations.

I’m giving this book 4 fangs.

Into the Unknown is a romance from World War 2. It was definitely something different from my usual read. The author did a great job bringing us back to that time and giving us a new perspective on living during this time.

I enjoyed the story and was intrigued from the beginning with Kate as well as Charlie. Kate was relate-able and I found her to be a like-able heroine. She wasn't going to put up with nonsense. Charlie on the other hand, he took a little to adjust to, but still a hero the reader is going to fall for and cheer on.

There is a lot of chemistry between Kate and Charlie as they both fight what is in front of them. Kate doesn't want to fall for a man with the job he has, and Charlie doesn't want to be a one woman kind of man.

This is a romance with some heated scenes. I found the writing to flow well and the author was able to draw me into the story and transport me to another time. If you like historical romance, even from the early 1900's, I'd recommend this book. It was a well written romance that will keep your attention.
