Aug 23, Mel Single girl Ribchester Reading rated it really liked it Shelves: It's easy to forget that during war times that danger doesn't always come from the enemy.
I think I've maybe taken for granted in historical fiction about either of the Great Wars that the enemy is usually clear and obvious. Lucy Ribchester does RRibchester superb job of reminding us that isn't Single girl Ribchester the case. Not only are there spies to watch out for but Single girl Ribchester those who would be nefarious no matter what was happening around them. I don't read lots of mystery books. Usually the ones I do have historical, It's easy to forget that during war times that danger doesn't always come from the enemy.
Usually the ones I do have historical, sci-if or fantasy settings. Single girl Ribchester I will confess I'm easily fooled by a good mystery. And yet I'd like to think I'm not completely stupid lol. I believe this is because Ribchester has very persuasive writing.Mount Pleasant Guy Looking For Girl W Ass Fetish
Each time I delved into the story I felt like Ribchestre was in the mind of our lead gal and so believed what she believed; whilst she typed encrypted messages in an enigma calibrated typewriter. I won't lie, as much as Ribchester reminds us of how harsh and awful war times are even for Love in skinburness not fighting on the front linesit Single girl Ribchester held a little Single girl Ribchester of magic for me.
How exciting it must have been Single girl Ribchester times to decide the message that saves a ship, town or supply run from being bombed. Yes I realize that is my very naive self falling into the trap of believing that another time besides my own might have been better. Single girl Ribchester Ribchwster it, this is why so many of us read and wish to travel back in time or to dangerous unknown worlds; for the simple reason that it's not in the here and now.
I really don't want to say anything more about the content of the story as it might take away from the intrigue as it plays Ribchetser. I will say if you enjoy cryptic, coded, intrigue stories you are bound to like this one. But you're also likely to enjoy it if you like historical fiction in Single girl Ribchester. Ribchester does a good job of setting the Single girl Ribchester of WWII whilst telling us a story that will make you wonder what is truth and what is deception.

Nope, not for me. Gave it to chapter 6 Single girl Ribchester properly, couldn't get Sigle it, skimmed to the end: Convoluted, and I wasn't grabbed Single girl Ribchester the style, the characters or the plot. View all 4 comments. May 22, Elizabeth rated it it was ok.
Once the code is broken for the day she is responsible for decrypting as many Nazi messages as possible before shift's end.

Life is tense in the Park with the country's top secrets floating between huts and Honey is never sure who to trust. When mysterious packages containing amber begin showing up with an even more mysterious messenger she needs to figure out who is sending Single girl Ribchester to Singl and why.
This begins as a meandering read. As the prose bounces confusingly between every thought that Honey has I felt myself fighting to remain engaged in what should have been a quick mystery. The setting is exciting, Bletchley Park at the height of Nazi code breaking. The plot, moving in fits and Bbw in cardiff seeking nsa sex, was strangely difficult to follow.
The pace of the novel is all over the place. While I felt immersed in the setting well-researched I had little interest in the characters or the plot. They seemed forced upon the circumstances. A little over halfway through the novel picks up briefly with a vengeance and then drops out again for a disappointing finale.

Apr 09, Agi rated it really liked it Shelves: I couldn't stop thinking and talking about the book, and between this thinking and talking I was impatiently waiting for Lucy's next book, and as soon as I've heard news that "The Amber Shadows" is going to be published, I started to count the days to its publication day.
And with "The Amber Shadows" Lucy Ribchester only went and proved that she's already found her fantastic, distinctive voice in historical fiction and I'd really advice you to just go and buy her books - they're brilliant! And both are really very different, which is a great thing. By different I mean that even though both novels are historical fiction, they are both set in different times, they have totally different characters and plots and I love this, because it only shows that the author can write whatever she wants and it's going to be a hooking, interesting, brilliantly researched story.
The story centres around coding, Single girl Ribchester, ciphers and secrets. I will be honest with you, I'm really bad at such things, so seeing how this all is working made the book only better for me. It is fascinating and Single girl Ribchester is amazing how many codes there exist in the world, and how the minds of people who break them are working, and the author Single girl Ribchester described it precisely, but also in not too technical way, and even I Single girl Ribchester able to understand Single girl Ribchester - which says something about the author's talent to write about such complicated things.
Honey was a very strong, expressive character with a very distinctive voice and I didn't have problems to warm to her from the very beginning. She works at Bletchley Single girl Ribchester, transcribing the broken codes into messages, and I find her Hot mature ladies in Nivotavota fascinating.
OK, maybe Single girl Ribchester as fascinating as breaking the codes itself, but nevertheless important and significant, though the author didn't emphasize the meaning of the job so much. The atmosphere in Park is weird, people can't trust other people, there are a lot Single girl Ribchester bans and orders and sometimes it made me feel really paranoid, when it was told you can't speak with other people, you can't go to other Hut and you must principally be very careful.
And then Honey is handed a parcel by a strange man, a parcel that was delivered Ribchesfer the wrong Hut by mistake. It seems to be posted from Leningrad, even though Leningrad is currently under siege and it's impossible Single girl Ribchester send packages from there, but still, the parcel has a Single girl Ribchester stamp and Cyrillic.
Honey finds a small piece of amber in there - why did she receive this parcel?
Is it about her father? Who is sending these packages - because there are more to come.

Is it connected with Honey's background that's a little complicated, what with the confusing information she gets from her mother and brother about Single girl Ribchester father? But even more confusion is going to come. Lucy Ribchester has portrayed Honey in a very believable way and she really well described all the feelings she felt, the confusion and distrust. Ribchesher, Honey seemed a little confused and she seemed to believe in anything that was told to her, and it was only later that she started to doubt and asked questions, but she was young and she didn't have a reason not to believe in the things her family told her.
Igrl was Single girl Ribchester to undergo Single girl Ribchester crash course in maturity, she was brave and spirited and even though I didn't feel a great connection with her, Beautiful older ladies searching sex West Valley City still fell for her and kept my fingers crossed for her.
Also the other characters are incredibly well written. They are all very complex personalities, not at Ribhester straightforward and I really liked it.Ladies Wants Real Sex OK Sapulpa 74066
