Dear Mrs Bird Reviews

  • Fictionophile

    Set during the London Blitz in 1940-41, you'd expect a dark and dour novel but this couldn't be farther from the truth.  It was a happy/sad book that highlighted the indomitable and resilient spirit of Londoners during the time, yet cast a keen eye on the devastation of the war.

    The story is told from the perspective of a young woman named Emmeline Lake, whose fondest wish is to become a journalist.  In particular, a Lady War Correspondent.  Emmy lives in Pimlico and shares a flat with her best f

    It's 1940's London. Emmeline Lake is doing her bit for the war office, volunteering as a telephone operator with the Auxiliary Fire Services.

    When Emmy (Emmeline), saw an advertisement for a job at the London Evening Chronicle, her dream of becoming a Lady War Correspondent suddenly becomes achievable. But the job is for a typist for the fierce advice columnist, Henrietta Bird. Mrs Birds rules are very clear: letters containing any unpleasantness must go straight in the bin.

    When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” - Fred Rogers

    All in all, this is a story about the helpers of World War 2 - amongst all the atrocities, there was a bit of light in those who came to the rescue of others.

    The author drew inspiration for the book after finding an advice column in a women’s magazine from 1939 (love this so much!). AJ Pearce has done some beautiful justice to th

    5 incredibly enthusiastic stars for Dear Mrs. Bird.

    I fell in love with Emmy, Bunty, and all the other characters in this story and when I realized I'd turned the last page, I was truly disappointed to be leaving their lives. I went into this book thinking it would be light and silly, and parts of it definitely were. But what I didn't expect (and was delighted to find!) were the layers of depth beneath the top floofy veneer.

    Emmy, like other young women in London of 1940, is Doing Her Bit for the

    I absolutely loved this quirky, fun read.

    In this book we meet Emmeline who quits her job as a waitress to become a lady war correspondence.

    But when she applies for a job and gets it. Things are not quite what they seem.

    She has unwittingly taken a job to be a helper to a contacetous Mrs Bird. Who writes a self help column. But Mrs bird refuses to answer any letters relating to lots of subjects that she finds risqué.

    Deciding to take matters into her own hands Emmeline starts writing back to al

    With a blend of lightheartedness and a dose of the heartbreaking reality of wartime, A.J. Pierce gives recognition to the women at home during WWII in this story taking place during the London blitz. Emmeline Lake’s lofty ambition to be a war correspondent isn’t meant to be when she finds out the job she applied for as a junior secretary for The Evening Chronicle was actually for a weekly magazine called Woman’s Friend, working for Henrietta Bird. She’s a straight laced advice columnist who will

    This story shows us the rolls of women in wartime Britain during the early 1940’s. A young Emmeline, who works a couple part time jobs, one at the fire station to answer calls after bombs from Hitler go off on the city. She gets a third job at a newspaper in hopes of it being as a wartime journalist, but she is disappointed when it is to help out a Mrs Bird who writes an advice column to people who send in letters.

    This is also a story of friendship, and you get a good feel for what everyday life

    An intelligent and touching story from the start. Young Emmeline Lake is a charismatic character, a dreamer who wants to become a Lady War Correspondent. After Emmy fails to ask the right questions during a job interview at a newspaper, she finds herself in a job as typist for a wacky ‘Dear Abby’ type who refuses to respond to help letters that include any 'unpleasantness'. What constitutes unpleasantness? Suffice it to say that it is a long list and very few problem response letters will be wri ...more
