This was a great read.
I was afraid it would get long winded like so many novels in this genre
do, but I was not disappointed.
At first I was surprised to find there were several story lines. The author included more families and
interwove quite a few characters into the plot.
I was a little worried since I do not like to bounce back and forth
between stories, but found the author handled it so smoothly it did not bother
me. I liked her characters and the story
material. This story has a great mix of
sweet love, war hardships, family, and struggle.
This story takes place in 1915 and war is descending upon
London. I think my favorite part of the
story was that it included a little about the Germans who were put into
internment camps during that time period.
It is an enjoyable
read for any afternoon. I only gave it 3
stars for a lack of depth and attachment I felt toward the main 2
characters. Their story never took hold of me and pulled me into every crevice. Aside from that and the semi okay
cover – it was a wonderful story that will bring a smile to anyone. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I Love this cute little Journal! For myself, and especially as a gift for friends. It is small and chunky and full of happy colors - not only on the outside but all throughout the book. The author did a fantastic job with her unique questions and great layout. I think this Christmas I will give out these to my sisters and good friends with a good set of pens.:)
One reason I like it so much is that each page has color on it. Not a boring blank journal but a fun enticing place to rest your mind and spill a little of it through your pen. Also each page has a cute little quote/saying that gets you started. For example, one page says "Here's Some Confetti - Celebrate all the little things that are going right".
Don't miss this cute little chunk of fun in about a 5" x 6" size! Don't we all need a little bit more happy in this crazy busy world of ours? Sometimes it really does take a minute to stop and think in order to realize that life is good - I can be happy!
