What was your favorite part of the story or favorite scene? Your least favorite? Why?

The last section (1941) was my least favourite part of the book. I found the meeting of Kay and Helen to be almost anti-climatic. And, I would have liked to read more about how Viv and Reggie got over the abortion rather than how they met on a train.

Oh, I loved the scene with Kay and Helen meeting! I think that was one of my favorites. I felt like it kind of put Kay and Helen's relationship into perspective, I felt like it more sense once I read their back-story. But I thoroughly agree about Viv and Reggie. I was so curious about how she ended up seeing him again after he abandoned her... and then I was a little bit disappointed with the scene when they first met.

I think the scenes with Kay and Mickey working in the ambulance were some of the most intense & memorable bits of the book. I can't even imagine the reality of living in a city that's being bombed every night... and I have only a vague, general knowledge of the real life history. Those scenes really made me feel those events so intensely and vividly. Also, the scene with Helen and Julia out walking at night felt similarly intense and exciting and scary.
