About The Book
For Lucy and Carolyn, life on a WWII bombing station brings drama, heartbreak and suspense in this touching love story.
When Britain declares war on Germany in 1939, Carolyn Maddison is still a schoolgirl. Her elder brother Alastair wastes no time in joining the RAF as a flying officer, and Carolyn decides that when she is eighteen she will follow him into the service by joining the Women's Auxiliary Air Force.
While reporting to the Air Ministry in London she meets a good-looking, charismatic pilot, Charlie Wade, currently employed in propaganda work. He believes that with her calm demeanor and resilience, Carolyn should work as an Intelligence officer, and suggests she serve on an active bombing station. At her side throughout the courses and postings that follow is Lucy Gaston, naturally quick-witted and sparky, a perfect foil for her friend.
The young WAAFs both obtain prestigious postings in 5 Group Bomber Command, where they perform the vital tasks of briefing and debriefing aircrew returning from operations over Germany. Lucy, an incorrigible optimist, falls head over heels for a member of a Lancaster bomber crew while Carolyn resists her feelings for its dashing pilot. She decides it's not worth the risk of loving a man in wartime. . . only to wonder if she has done the right thing when a new WAAF on the station sets her cap at him.

Although the division was disbanded during the 1950s, the history, name and the famous 'Desert Rat' flash is carried on by the 7th Armoured Brigade
I don't read a lot of historical romance books, but I was asked to read and review Just One More Day and I am so glad I said yes. The book is about Carolyn Maddison, and her journey as a member of the Women's Auxiliary Air Force.
She joined as soon as she was old enough, after seeing her older brother joining the RAF as a Flying Officer she was knew she wanted to follow him. On her way she meets Charlie Wade who is an intelligence officer he believes that she would be perfect to work also as an intelligence officer at a active bombing station. There she meets Lucy the quick witted and fabulous woman and Carolyn become quick friends.
The women find their time to be filled with drama, romance and emotion, falling in love during war isnt the best of ideas, or is it. could it all be worth it.
The writing of this book is outstanding, the heart wrenching and tearful moments were so beautiful. I was rooted to my seat, crossing my fingers and hoping. I loved reading about the women's roles during the war, as I have never really found myself researching or reading much about the women involved.
I was sad to finish this book, but I was so proud of what all those amazing people from around the world did for our future, for our freedom.
