3.0 out of 5 stars A good story but could have been better 23 Sept. 2014
Format:Paperback
Annabel Constantine is the only child of the wealthy and ambitious fish merchant Ambrose. Ambrose has aspirations not only for himself but for his daughter and any grandchildren he may have. Launching his daughter into London society - only made possible by his connections, the one ambition of Ambrose is to secure a title for his daughter and any future grandchildren. To what lengths will the scheming Ambrose go to in order for him to get what he wants?
The book moves through the years charting Annabel's rise and fall but only in the fields of Flanders will things finally be decided.
This was a good read but it was a shame that the book did not move between the past and present day. Also more of the book dedicated to the time during the First World War would have been good. The end felt rather rushed almost as if a deadline had be reached and all the ends had to be quickly tied up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Story 7 Sept. 2014
By MAC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Margaret Dickinson gets better all the time. I have read a number of her books, but this one is the best so far. I liked the way the story flowed. The main character held me spellbound and brought tears to my eyes. She was truly a remarkable and compassionate character. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys family stories. I look forward to reading more of Margaret Dickinson's books as they become available on Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars good bygone days 24 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Actually ordered this for my mothers birthday so personally cannot review this book but judging by my mothers reaction and how she is plowing through it it seems a marvelous read, she now owns every single book Margaret Dickinson has wrote and from what I can gather this does not disappoint in from the other novels she has wrote I would go as far to say that Margaret Dickinson is our modern female equal to Charles Dickens in her writing and observations.
