Julia Kelly's "The Lost English Girl" spans several years with the story of star-crossed love, the daughter who results, and the terrors of World War II. Viv, a girl from a devoutly Catholic working-class family, finds herself pregnant and hastily married after a fling with Joshua, a young Jewish man with dreams of being a jazz musician. Pulled apart by her family's disapproval, the pair are separated, sending Joshua across the sea and Viv back to her family, along with her daughter, Maggie. When war breaks out, Viv allows Maggie to be evacuated to the countryside, while Joshua joins the Royal Air Force, but nowhere in Britain is truly safe.
