The Last Debutantes book review

The Last Debutantes by Georgie Blalock is a WWII historical fiction book.

I bought this book when Gracelyn and I visited a new bookstore in our area. I liked that it was WWII, but it was different than others I had read. 

The Last Debutantes is set in England in 1939. The niece of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain is a debutante, thanks to her aunt and uncle. She is trying to fit into society while hiding the difficult things about her past. 

I liked that this covered a look into England in 1939, which I have not read much about. It covers the life of England’s aristocracy on the eve of war, the struggle with their world, and the new one approaching. 

I enjoyed this book, but I think there was a lot of fiction in this historical fiction book. I wish there had been author notes like most historical fiction now has at the end of the book. I would have liked to know how much was fact and how much fiction the author weaved into the story.
