Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m excited about What the Raven Brings by John Owen Theobald. I read the first book in the trilogy, These Dark Wings, a few months ago and loved it! The setting really stood out to me. I guess I never thought of the Tower of London and its ravens during WWII. It’s something I always associated with the Tudors. The plot was fast paced and left me with so many unanswered questions. I need to know what will happen next!
Anna Cooper, now 14, bluffs her way into the Air Force and becomes entangled in the glamorous—and dangerous—world of female war pilots. But the secret of her past threatens both her and her fellow airwomen. Fighting to earn her wings and prove herself, unsought help arrives from a dashing young pilot from Bomber Command. Timothy Squire takes charge of the Tower ravens, “the heroes of the Blitz,” displaying them to an adoring public, including Anna’s great friend Flo, recently returned from evacuation. But Flo’s interest is not with the ravens alone. Reeling from Anna’s departure, Timothy Squire throws himself into work at the docks as a Royal Engineer. Promoted to bomb expert, he soon finds himself at the center of a powerful secret of his own: one that could win or lose Anna—and the war itself.
