    3.75 stars rounded up to 4 A compelling dual narrative taking place in 2018 and during WWII that was Impossible to put down The Light Over London is probably what many of us WWII readers would refer to as historical lite , simply meaning it s a bit heavy on the relationships between people in the case of this book the gunner girls , families, and of course the romantic kind But it was just the type of story to start on a cold 50 celsius Saturday morning over m
