It's absolutely astounding to read such well-written, meticulously researched historical fiction. What a tour de force! And such fun to read, too!I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys drama, romance, family stories, adventure, or books with great writing and appealing characters. In other words, practically everybody. It will particularly appeal to -- let us say -- disillusioned former fans of "Downton Abbey," or people who enjoy other tales of the gentry in difficult circumstances, from Jane Austen through K.M. Peyton and beyond. And if you are interested in life on the home front during WWII, this is definitely your book.I think it makes a good adjunct to Elizabeth Wein? Anyone? Who is Davey's father? Seriously??!Yes, well. Seriously, everyone. If you'd like a really entertaining read about being a young woman on the home front in WWII, this is your book!
