Into the Unknown by Lorna Peel *Review

Historical Romance (WW2)
Date Published: May 5, 2015

London on 3 September 1939 is in upheaval. War is inevitable. Into this turmoil steps Kate Sheridan, newly arrived from Ireland to live with her aunt and uncle, and look for work. When she meets Flight Lieutenant Charlie Butler sparks fly, but he is a notorious womaniser. Should she ignore all the warnings and get involved with a ladies man whose life will be in daily danger?

Charlie Butler has no intention of getting involved with a woman. But when he meets Kate his resolve is shattered. Should he allow his heart to rule his head and fall for a nineteen-year-old Irish girl while there is a war to fight?

Private conflicts and personal doubts are soon overshadowed. Will the horrors of war bring Kate and Charlie together or tear them apart?

Into the Unknown tells the story of a young Irish woman, Kate Sheridan, as she makes the journey to England at the beginning of World War II. Her father is staunchly opposed to this move, wanting her to go to America, instead, but her mother prevails and Kate goes to London to live with her mother’s sister and her family. Kate has recently graduated from the equivalent of business school and is ready to find a job. Kate soon meets Charlie Butler, the elder son of the family who lives across the street from her family. Charlie is an RAF pilot with a girl in every port, but he soon develops eyes for Kate. Both his father and Kate’s uncle warn Charlie off of Kate, but Kate is different from the easy women he’s been used to. The two end up falling in love with one another, and face numerous trials, as one might expect in a book set in war-torn England.
I truly enjoyed this book, despite some of the other reviews to the contrary. It allows for a glimpse into the lives of lovers during wartime, and it allows for a glimpse at how the English felt about the Irish during World War II. I felt that Ms. Peel’s descriptions were her strong suit in this novel; I really felt as though I was living through the bombings, et cetera, with Kate and Charlie. I really appreciated the strength expressed by Kate, and I worried along with her over Charlie’s sorties as an RAF pilot.

Because this book takes place in wartime, I was extremely worried whether or not there would be a happy ending. I will not spoil anything about the book except to reassure other readers that it does, indeed, have a happy ending, though it takes both the hero and heroine much effort and much growing up in order to reach that happy ending.

I recommend this book to those who love literature set in World War II but, because of the sexual situations and depictions of violence, I would only recommend it to mature readers of 16+.
