Coventry

If you’re looking for a book to mark Remembrance Day, I recommend Coventry, by Helen Humphreys.  It’s a fairly short novel about two women in the British city of Coventry and what happens to them and their loved ones during both World Wars.

Much of it takes place on the night in 1940 when Coventry sustained its worst bombing.  It gave me some sense of what it was like for civilians to live through such an attack.
