A romantic novel set against the horror of the First World War, marred only, for me, by a repetitive rather conceited narrative on occasions. The characters were drawn vividly, and the period conveyed with skill, albeit as stereotypes of class and gender in a changing era. The impact of what war does to individuals and communities is drawn in detail, leaving little to the imagination, yet the writers style of long descriptive paragraphs of horror and degradation failed to move me, and sometimes jarred, seeming trite. Worth a read and certainly well narrated.

This was a bit of a slow starter for and very much a change in this author’s usual style. I’ve read quite a few of her books in the past but this is the first set in the past. I was a little unsure about the storyline at first but once I got into it enjoyed it. The main characters developed quite well though I can’t honestly say that I found them likeable because I didn’t but they held my attention. All in all a good ‘read’ (I had the audio version).
