The Runaway Daughter by Joanna Rees Review

As I mentioned previously, one of my goals this year is to read more Historical Fiction. I've read a few amazing books so far and The Runaway Daughter was just as great as the ones I've read so far.

I loved this book! I spent the entire time reading it wanting to know what would happen next. I admired Anna/Verity's courage and determination throughout the story. The author's writing style was spot on. The reader can definitely feel what living in London in the 1920's was like. Everything is starting to change, people are pushing boundaries, woman are dressed in shorter dresses and cutting their hair short. The reader gets to experience everything through the characters and the story.

I will be keeping an eye out for the second book in this trilogy as I want to know more of what will happen.

A great captivating historical read that will have you reading past your bedtime I'm sure!

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you to PGC Books for my gifted copy.

Here's a quick synopsis:
It's 1926 and Anna Darton is on the run from a terrible crime. Alone and scared in London, salvation comes in the form of Nancy, a sassy American dancer at the notorious nightclub, The Zip. Re-inventing herself as Vita Casey, Anna becomes part of the line-up and is thrown into a hedonistic world of dancing, parties, flapper girls and fashion.
When she meets the dashing Archie Fenwick, Vita buries her guilty conscience and believes him when he says he will love her no matter what. But unbeknown to Vita, her secret past is fast catching up on her, and when the people closest to her start getting hurt, she is forced to confront her past or risk losing everything she holds dear.
