    That gorgeous cover grabs you and the story of three courageous women during WWII won’t let you go. This is Soraya M. Lane at her finest.

    We meet journalist Ella in the States, when she’s found out for submitting stories under a male pseudonym and loses her job. “No women are allowed to write here,” she’s told.

    Then in Italy during a heated battle with the Germans, American photojournalist Danni covering the action is told, “No women allowed on the battle field.”

    Finally there’s Chloe, Vogue model who’s had a fling with Gabriel, a charming French editor. After returning to London for three years, she finds a sneaky way to get to Nazi-occupied France to see him.

    These gutsy women never give up. Danni and Ella, now in England, sneak onto a hospital ship heading to Normandy, becoming the first photog and writer covering the battle on the beaches.

    Chloe finds Gabriel in Paris and longs for him to m...

    ARC Review: The Last Correspondent by Soraya M Lane
    First I would like to extend my gratitude to Soraya M Lane for the invitation to read your latest work and thank you to Netgalley for all your help.  Please note that I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own.

    The Last Correspondent was one of my top anticipated books of 2020 and I was not disappointed. This novel is dynamic and exciting.  The pacing is excellent and immediately pulls you in.
    The Last Correspondent, like many of Soraya M Lane's novels,  has three main characters.  As always each character is distinct and is their own person.  I can honestly say that I can never decide, which of her characters is my favourite.  I have loved all of the main characters in all of the authors books. Danni in particular stood out as we share a passion for photography and that shared passion helped me to see things from her perspective.  I loved that Ella went from hiding from ...

    The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane is an excellent historical fiction novel that is based during WWII.

    This novel focusses on the unsung heroines consisting of the war journalists, photographers, and correspondents that traveled overseas and reported on and documented the battles, atrocities, and soldiers. These brave women risked their lives to be able to be a part of the war to document the events for the public as well as for history. Without some of these huge findings, there would be large parts of history that would be lost to us for forever.

    I loved being able to read about WWII from a different angle. This book sets itself apart from its crowd by selecting an occupation and a group of individuals that are not heavily written about. I loved learning this.

    In this novel, the author alternates her chapters with each chapter centering around one of three women that all seem different at first (from different countries, liv...

    Reading historical fiction has become enjoyable to me as I learn more about the “behind the scenes” things that went on during World War II I haven’t ever thought about. This book is an excellent depiction of female journalists and photographers and the lengths they went to toward being able to report actual events of the war, the soldiers and the conditions, despite being banned from the front. Told from the perspective of three amazing women, the story reveals the strong personalities and strengths of their diverse backgrounds. The book is based on actual characters and happenings of the war. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in historical fiction, I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions expressed are my own.

    If you love historical fiction that portrays strong female characters and their dramatic, horrific and brave experiences of war, this novel is for you. Set in the early 1940s and inspired by the true accounts of female war correspondents during WWII, Lane tells the stories of war from the perspective of Ella, an American journalist, Danni, an American photographer, and Chloe, the little sister of a British male journalist, Andy.

    Ella and Danni are badass women bucking prejudices and restrictions against women reporting on and being around war. Even when told over and over again that they don't belong, or they're not allowed, or they shouldn't be there, their passion and duty to report on the war is unwavering. Chloe is young, naive, and a bit selfish, but the war changes her, as it does everyone, and she grows into yet another badass woman.

    The narrative centers around the horrific events of the historic day when allied forces landed on Omaha Bea...

    This book pulls no punches as it follows three women across France in the harrowing last days of WWII. All three are struggling to find themselves as they try to persevere in a man's world. It's bad enough that a war is raging all around them. But they have to fight their battles among their own ranks too. Their lives come together in unexpected ways as the harsh realities of war rain down around them. Danni and Ella are just as good at their jobs as their male counterparts. Maybe better than some. But they find themselves restricted at every turn because of their gender. Chloe just wants to be with the man she loves, but is finding that difficult under circumstances she could never have anticipated. This is a gritty novel that tells the story of women who just want to do their jobs to the best of their ability, but find themselves stymied at every turn. Still, as they keep trying, they have to learn to navigate a reality they didn't expect. The suspense builds with e...

    THE LAST CORRESPONDENT by Soraya Lane is a beautifully-written and emotional work of historical fiction that is inspired by true events and people. It is the story of three courageous women whose paths cross in war-ravaged France during World War II. Ella Franks is an American journalist who loses her job when her editor finds out she has been writing under a male pseudonym. With nothing left to lose, she heads overseas determined to become a war correspondent. Danni Bradford is a daring British photojournalist that has made her way into the male-dominated world of war reporting, but she soon learns she will be left behind when only male correspondents are allowed to cover the unfolding events in Normandy. She will stop at nothing to be part of the delegation that will witness the landing at Omaha Beach. Later Ella and Danni will meet Chloe, the sister of Danni’s partner, Andy who has stumbled into the French Resistance and whose life is in danger the longer she rem...

    Many thanks to NetGalley for the ARC of this book. I’ve always loved Soraya’s stories and this one is no different!! This book follows Ella, a journalist and Danni, a photographer, as the two make their way to Normandy and cover the D-Day invasion. A third woman, Chloe, has her own tale and is interwoven with Ella and Danni. I held my breath for most of this story as I never knew what was going to happen. Adventure, twists and turns, love, and the war are all vital pieces of this story. I highly recommend this book as Ella and Danni were true heroes and lead the way for women correspondents within the war. The battles and choices they had to make weren’t easy ones and they were brave to pursue their dream.

    World War II always excites me. So when I received my NetGalley ARC, I was more than happy to indulge.

    The setting of this novel is in 1943, in a few different locations, such as London, Paris, Bayeux, and Normandy. There are three main characters, Danni, Ella, and Chloe. They are going to the front lines of the war on their own accounts. They each have their own goal to achieve. During this time, women were not permitted to travel to the front lines. Thus what they are going to do is dangerous.

    The author writes from a fresh perspective than many World War II novels. In the beginning, the novel is slow-paced but in the end, it returns to a steady pace.

    The story is told from 3 different points of view. There is a smooth transition between those points of view. There is no abrupt change of tense. The paragraphs are light and short. The language is evocative. It portrays the difficulties women had to endeavor to go to the front lines. A...

    The blurb for this was intruquing and as I had read another of Soyara's books and enjoyed it, I requested it. The first part was good and I liked Danni and Ella as they were strong independent women who were opening up opportunities for the next generation of women journalists and then the story changed as they became romantically involved and seemed to lose their spark. The book is well written and this wouldn't stop me reading more by the author in the future.
