Evelyn Blake Missing in Action By Denise Deems


The most complicated thing about Lt. Evelyn Blake’s Army Nurse career is that she has to tell her parents she’s accepted a dashing British pilot’s hand in marriage. But when Evelyn’s transport plane crashes just hours before one of the biggest battles of the Second World War, Evelyn Blake finds herself Missing In Action.

Evelyn Blake’s adventure finds her dropped into the thick of Operation Market Garden. She teams up with a rag tag band of American paratroopers and their brave but infuriating Lieutenant to escape the Germans. When Evelyn returns back to her own unit, she is ordered to forget the men who saved her life.

Reading the review prior to reading the book, I wasn’t sure that I would like the plot line. I was wrong. The author did great job with this subject and wrote a very good story. I finished this in two evenings and was left wanting the story to continue. The ending was a little abrupt and not what I fully expected, but it worked well.


Plucky Flight Nurse Evelyn returns in this sequel to Missing in Action. Her military career is over, except that of an Army officer’s wife. Married life might have its bumps in the road, but her husband, Major Patrick Mitchell, is building an esteemed military career in Washington D.C. So when her husband offers to take her along on his newest assignment, how can she refuse?

Berlin, 1947, is a world away from Washington, D.C. The war-torn city is still reeling from its last stand. When Evelyn arrives, she finds that it is lacking all of the charm of wartorn Paris. Fearful of her safety, she’s ordered by her husband to stay on base and out of trouble. Can Evelyn find the thrill of adventure that was absent from her post-war life? Or will it destroy her?

This book is truly now in my top five reads! I love the characters and the plot, the fact that it is also during world war two just made it that much more better. The story historically is great never did I think that It would be this close to correct. I would recommend this book a hundred times over. Well done Miss Denise Deems!
