Summary

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Ambulance Girls by Deborah Burrows, read by Penelope Freeman.

On duty during London's Blitz...

As death and destruction fall from the skies day after day in the London Blitz, Australian ambulance driver Lily Brennan confronts the horror with bravery, intelligence, common sense and humour.

Although she must rely upon her colleagues to carry out her dangerous duties, Lily begins to suspect that someone at her ambulance station may be giving assistance to the enemy by disclosing secret information. Then her best friend, Jewish ambulance attendant David Levy, disappears in suspicious circumstances. Aided - and sometimes hindered - by David's school friend, a mysterious and attractive RAF pilot, Lily has to draw on all of her resources to find David and negotiate the dangers that come from falling in love in a country far from home in a time of war....

ambulance girls :)

I loved this book. Lots of characters to love, lots of stories to follow.

My only criticism will be that there was not enough ambulance and patient stories, but I still really enjoyed this book.

Thank you.

Suspenseful

The book is a page turner, I couldn't stop listening. The historical research seems right and the story embraced a range of emotions. Deborah has written other books including 2 others in this series. Please Audible, let's have them here, preferably narrated by the compelling voice and accents of Pamela Freeman.

Really loved this book.

This was meant to be a 5 star review, however the machine I am reviewing this book on won't let me go beyond 3 stars.
This story had me hooked from the beginning. I think the sceen with the children was probably my most memorable moment. This book was very hard to put down.
I hope the other 2 books in this series so far become available on audible soon.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
There were quite a few surprises along the way. Let's just say, that Lilly wasn't much of a slooth, but then I can see why she reached the conclusions she did.
I lloved the characters and felt every victory and tragedy.
The narration was wonderful. Penelope did a very good Australian accent throughout. She also gave the characters distinct voices.
I am not sure what else to say. You reeally need to read this book in order to get a feel for it.
Of course, I am highly recommending this book.
