A tale of urban kids adapting to country living in 1939, it’s charming, lots of adventures for three girls taken in by a pub landlady and her very caring niece. A significant part of the tale is how they cope with country living. They rescue an airman whose parachute has trapped him in a tree and each in their innocent way falls for him. We meet them all again twenty years later and catch up on the intervening years. A lovely read.

Synopsis

Time to Say Goodbye by Katie Flynn

This title comes from the Sunday Times bestselling author Katie Flynn. Three girls, evacuated from Liverpool during World War Two, support each other through hardship and heartbreak. It's 1939, and three ten-year-old girls meet on a station platform. Imogen, Rita and Debby all missed the original evacuation and now the authorities are finding it difficult to place them. When Auntie and her niece, Jill, who run the Canary and Linnet Public House, offer to take them in, the billeting officer is greatly relieved. The countryside is heaven to the three little townies, especially after they meet Woody and Josh, also evacuees. They find that by climbing to the top of the biggest tree in the beech wood they have a perfect bird's-eye view of the nearest RAF station and are able to watch the comings and goings of the young fighter pilots as the Battle of Britain rages. Then they find an injured flier and the war becomes a stark reality. As they grow up, love and rivalry enter their lives and, twenty years on, when the girls decide on a reunion, many surprises come to light...
