Excellent book with WWI background 25 July 2005
By SusieQ - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read a number of novels that use WWI and its effect on English aristocracy as a plot point. And so many of these novels have been, to say the least, sentimental drivel. But as of this date, I can safely say that NOW GOD BE THANKED is frankly one of the best novels I've ever read, as well as one of the best that uses the carnage and the changes wrought by WWI on England and English families as its theme.

The basic plot interweaves the stories of two English families, the Rowlands and the Strattons, and how the war is a force of change in all their lives, but it's so much more than just that. It has all the emotional power of the old TV series, "Upstairs Downstairs" but I'm not comparing it to that; it's a vastly deeper story. This is the first book of a trilogy by John Masters and NOW GOD BE THANKED ends in December, 1915. I can only say that I am eager to find the other two books in the trilogy and find out the futures of all these characters, though I can imagine most will be heartbreaking, particularly for the young men...I was especially impressed with how well the author balanced such a large canvas of characters; every one is given his or her chance and we come to know them - NOT a light read, very involving & thought-provoking.
