Nice book about friendship. But - Many wordy, unproductive, draggy (boring) storyline pages. Skimmed most of the book. Not my cup of tea

Female friendship is a wonderful connection. It can outlast wars and marriages. When three girls find themselves roommates in an English boarding house in 1928, their friendships continue to their death. Marie, a German girl, of course is worried about being deported during World War II. Her friend Hazel was raised by a single mother living a bohemian lifestyle and Nora comes from a wealthy English family. When Marie dies in Canada, her granddaughter goes to London to return a piece of jewelry to Nora as requested in Marie’s will. Nora reveals the history of the three women. As in all good historical fiction, there’s a lot of information about growing up during World War II including the treatment of Germans.

I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. It’s a story of three childhood friends and the strong relationship between these women and what they did during WWII to protect one another. I would recommend this as a great read.
