Yours Cheerfully starts out slowly ... With the trains running at unpredictable times due to the war and with Charles' leave time ticking away, will Emmy miss her own wedding? This kind of madcap drama certainly adds to the fast pace of the second half of the book, but it's not at all necessary ... The women in this book are far more interesting than the men.
[An] enjoyable second installment to The Emmy Lake Chronicles ... Pearce packs in lighthearted banter and depictions of the good-spirited citizens of London working together to survive the war, returning readers to the delightful milieu of the previous book. With big stakes and formidable opponents, this exciting saga is a fruitful exploration of the solidarity among women in times of grief, love, and hardship.
