Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye

Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye Review

As the devastating years of the Second World War march ever closer, the beautiful Redcliffe sisters must face their own struggles and navigate the perils of growing up—and growing apart.

Eldest sister Isobel—passionate, domineering, misguided—is infatuated with Fascism. But can she continue to justify her dangerous political beliefs when faced with the shocking realities of Nazi Germany?

Insecure and introverted Felicity, youngest of the three, is about to take her vows and enter the convent, against her sisters’ wish. A chance meeting with an American soldier threatens the very foundations of her decisions.

Chiara, the bright and happy golden child, is more interested in the gay whirl of the season than matters of faith or ideology. But even her breezy innocence cannot survive the harsh lessons of heartbreak and war.

Each sister must follow her own path and, as they do so, their differences threaten to take them beyond the realms of forgiveness.
