      There are many things which I liked about this book. The social history of a rural lifestyle in Yorkshire at the time of the Great War provided an interesting setting.During the early chapters I liked the way in which the social divide between the wealthy and less wealthy families and their place in society was developed. The characters which make up the two central families and how they interacted with each other was developed well. Both from the social divide perspective, but also from the vie [...]

      A darn good book!An excellent way to learn about the history of the world war. By reading this book you can get a better understanding of how the war affected every day people and their families. A moving book and heart felt story. We must all come to grips with our past and mistakes we made.

      A good family saga that explores the lives of the "gentry" and the "workers" and the impact of two world wars. Involved plots with lots of interesting characters. I will look for more books by Leah Fleming.

      This was a good piece of storytelling and I enjoyed it, but I was always aware that it wasn't something I would have chosen to read if I'd not picked it up in a BookCrossing Zone. More of a "Because it was there" than "Where have you been all my life? Thank goodness I found you"

    12. Louise on said:

      Beautifully written. So tragic but a beautiful story about how in years to come, lives cross over.
