Hello Hello! How are you?

Today I’m doing a spotlight for the #RandomThingsTours organised by Anne Cater for When We Fall by Carolyn Kirby! I couldn’t resist this book when I heard about it, you know I love historical fiction, and I have to say that what I’ve read so far is really good! I’m really looking forward to finishing this book and getting the review up on my blog as soon as possible, I’m sure I’m going to end up loving it! Thank you to Anne and Carolyn for letting me take part in this tour and for sending me the book!


England, 1943. Lost in fog, pilot Vee Katchatourian is forced to make an emergency landing where she meets enigmatic RAF airman Stefan Bergel, and then can’t get him out of her mind.

In occupied Poland, Ewa Hartman hosts German officers in her father’s guest house, while secretly gathering intelligence for the Polish resistance. Mourning her lover, Stefan, who was captured by the Soviets at the start of the war, Ewa is shocked to him on the street one day.

Haunted by a terrible choice he made in captivity, Stefan asks Vee and Ewa to help him expose one of the darkest secrets of the war. But it is not clear where everyone’s loyalties lie until they are tested…

Published to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day and based on WWII war atrocity the Katyn massacre, When We Fall is a moving story of three lives forever altered by one fatal choice.
