This is the best book I have ever read, just can't put it down. I have only just discovered Elizabeth Elgin and this is the third book of hers that I have read. I can't wait to read the follow up books about the Sutton family and all the other books that she has written, do hope she decides to write more books set in the war, just brilliant stories and I feel I am there with them.

I couldn't believe it when I stumbled across this Elizabeth Elgin book for free in the Kindle store. Especially because of its length and the quality of writing.

I'll Bring You Buttercups is the 1st book in a series about the genteel Sutton family and their servants in the run up to and during the First World War. It reminds me a lot of Downton Abbey... I read all of the books in the series in paperback several years ago, and loved each one. The descriptions and characters completely charmed me and although some of the language is perhaps a little bit cheesy at times, all in all the story of the Sutton family is a wonderful one, filled with love and tragedy.

I'm so happy to have found this for my Kindle, and for free to boot! I'm loving reading it again.

This book paints a vivid picture of life at the start of the 20th century and during the first world war. Throughout the book I felt that I was there and could imagine the scenes which the words painted. A wonderful storyline which means that you can't put the book down. I heartily recommend this to romantic and hard headed people alike. The way that the relationships and personalities interact does make you think about how you as an individual treat others and your effect on them.

I really, really enjoyed this book. When I downloaded it, I was pleased by how long the book seemed to be - and long it was! By the end I felt attached to Alice and Julia and didn't want it to end - thank god the book is part of a series!

This book really worked out for me as I am a commuter in London, and walk through Hyde Park every day - I found myself imagining where Julia and Andrew met, silly I know, but Elgin is so descriptive with her story that it almost feels real. I'd read on the train and wish my commute was just a little longer so I could finish the next chapter!

Some may find the story slightly slow-moving, maybe a little repetitive - this was fine for me as I was so into it, but if you're wanting a fast-paced story this is probably not for you.

Something I really enjoyed was the war-time hospital scenes, they really gave me a gritty insight to what hell soldiers went through. It is a tear-jerker, but full of love and happy times too.

Can't wait to download the next one!

This book is one of the best I have ever read. It was a real eye-opener for me, and gave me great respect for the men and women of that era. I have already read the next three in the series, and I reccomend them to anyone.

this story is the first in a series of four which follows the fortunes of Daisy Hawthorn, a young sewing maid, and the aristocratic Sutton family, from the beginning of the century to the end of the first world war. Although the characters are fictitious the background information is historically accurate. I couldn't put it down and am already reading the next in the series.

Liked the actual storyline although could have guessed most of it! Too much flowery descriptions in places for my liking but others may like this type of thing.
