Resumen:

Goodnight From London : From USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Robson--author of Moonlight Over Paris and Somewhere in France--comes a lush historical novel that tells the fascinating story of Ruby Sutton, an ambitious American journalist who moves to London in 1940 to report on the Second World War, and to start a new life an ocean away from her past.

In the summer of 1940, ambitious young American journalist Ruby Sutton gets her big bread: the chance to report on the European war as a staff writer for Picture Weekly newsmagazine in London. She jumps at the chance, for it's an opportunity not only to prove herself, but also to start fresh in a city and country that know nothing of her humble origins. Bit life in besieged Britain test Ruby in ways she never imagined.

Although mos t of Ruby's new colleagues welcome her, a few resent her presence, not only as an American but also as a woman. She is just beginning to fine her feet, to feel at home in a country that is so familiar yet so foreign, When the bombs begin to fall.

As the nightly horror of the Blitz stretches unbroken into weeks and months, Ruby must set aside her determination to remain objective observer. When she loses everything but her life, and must depend upon the kindness of strangers, she learns for the first time the depth and measure of true friendship--and what it is to love a man who is burdened by secrets that aren't his to share.

Goodnight from London, inspired in part by the wartime experiences of the author's own grandmother, is a captivating, heartfelt, and historically immersive story that readers are sure to embrace.
