a moving and poignant story
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
l highly recommend this story. It focuses on the first world war and the recruits from rural areas. It gives an insight as to why so many young men signed up in without an awareness of the personal consequences.
What did you like best about this story?
The relationship between the two main characters, also the illustration of a way of life lost after the First World War.
Have you listened to any of Josie Dunn’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No. This is the first, brilliantly read.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Felt tearful at the end, not a common reaction.
Any additional comments?
l am a great fan of Jaqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs' books. I think this one is better and l hope there may be a follow up. i would love to know what happens next to the main character.
