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.
