51irtq6asil

“Too Late the Morrow” eBook was published in 2016 (original paper edition was published in 1984) and was written by Richard Townshend Bickers (https://www.fantasticfiction.com/b/richard-townshend-bickers/). Mr. Bickers published more than 60 books.

I received a galley of this novel for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I categorize this novel as ‘PG’ because it contains scenes of Violence. The story is set in England during 1941-42. The RAF is battling the Germans. There are three primary characters: brothers James and Christopher Fenton, and cousin Roger Hallowes. All three are RAF officers. James flying Spitfires, though he has temporarily landed a desk assignment. Christopher is flying the Beaufighter to protect antisubmarine craft. Roger is flying the Halifax heavy bomber.

While the story does include several combat scenes, more of the story involves the lives of the three pilots – Interaction with their RAF fellows, romantic affairs with young women and their own deep feelings after living through more than two years of war.

I thought that this was an interesting 5.5 hour read of 180 pages. I find that the Fiction novels depicting this period written by those who lived through it are always interesting, each with their own little details. The story moves along well even though it is not always filled with action. The cover is interesting showing what looks likes a Beaufighter. I give this novel a 4 out of 5.

My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).
