      "Lest We Forget"When I started reading this book, I was immediately taken back to my reading experience and the writing style, of Kate Morton’s ‘The House At Riverton’, in as much as the composition and presentation techniques, and the tone and content of the writing, are quite similar.

Selma Bartley and Guy Cantrell become firm friends which later turns into a tender first love. Then, WW1 intervenes and thanks to one twin takin [...]

      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 [...]

      First book I have read by Leah Fleming - and it was one of those free downloads on the kindle for a while. Thoroughly enjoyed this book - although the ending became almost a romantic prediction. Difficult book to put down once started. kind of reading!! I shall now look out for other books by this author.

      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.

    11. Jennifer on said:

      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.
