Sit Down With a Good Cup of Tea and Enjoy- Yours Cheerfully!

Yours Cheerfully

By: A.J. Pearce

"Yours Cheerfully" is a delightful *sequel to the bestselling book “Dear Mrs. Bird”. Set in England during the Second World War, we become reacquainted with the main characters Emmy Lake and her good friend Bunty. Emmy works at the British magazine, Women’s Friend where she works diligently to assist readers who write into the advice column, Yours Cheerfully, to get council in solving many of their problems. In this book Emmy begins to branch out in the world of journalism and begins to write propaganda news pieces to enlist women to go to work in support of the war effort. Emmy involves herself with the women who are working in the munitions factories while trying to look after their children and worrying about their husbands and loved ones overseas. Through Emmy's reporting, we get a glimpse into the lives of these women and the struggles they faced.

This book is a lovely light read that touches on some more serious historical perspectives. You will fall in love with Emmy and Bunty and cheer for them through all their adventures. If you enjoyed Dear Mrs. Bird, you will be delighted with this sequel…..and I feel like there may even be a third book coming in this series! This will be a good summer read!

Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest review.

* This book could be read as a standalone and you do not necessarily have to have read the previous book to enjoy and understand "Yours Cheerfully". But if this description interests you- then read "Dear Mrs. Bird"- you will thank me later.
