Adrienne Chinn's English wife is a delightful two-timeline novel, whose action took place in 1940 and 2001, and which both go forward. It is a wonderful warm read that I adored.

The novel takes place during the war in Norwich and 2001 in Newfoundland after a plane was diverted because of September 11th.

Families are a complicated thing. Relationships blossom and die later when hearts are consumed by hatred and unforgiveness. When bitterness sets in, life is spoiled.

We have to make sure that we have the right priorities. "Be careful not to miss the important things while you're so busy." Nobody ever comes to the end of their lives and wishes they had spent more time in the office. The power and greed of companies are in contrast to life in love. A character chases fame and fortune forever. Nobody will ever bring luck. Real wealth and treasure can be found in people.

I absolutely loved The English Wife. Adrienne Chinn perfectly captured the atmosphere of uncertainty in times of war and the rough freedom in Newfoundland. Adrienne Chinn is a new author for me, but I want to read more of her novels.

I got this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.
