I was drawn to this novel by its beautiful cover. Also, while I had never read a book by this author, his name was familiar to me.
This is a novel about people who are trying to find meaning in their lives. They survived WWI when many others did not. This has left them with questions about what life should be like.
Each character in this story is well described and filled out. Readers will have empathy for Rosie, Daniel and the others as they struggle.
This novel has been called ‘sweeping’ and I think that is an apt description. Immerse yourself in this one. Note that it is the second in a trilogy although it can be read without having read the first novel. Readers may well want to read all three titles though.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
