5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic female role model 25 Jan 2008
By Trickle Tree VINE VOICE
I read this in my late teens and loved the strength of the lead female character and wished I was her. There is a lovely romantic story interweaving the novel which doesn't slow the plot down or jeopardize the characterization.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic read that puts Birdsong in the shade 22 Sep 2000
I loved this book! I first read it years ago when it was first published and came across it recently while I was browsing through the Amazon site. It was so long ago that I couldn't really remember any of the details and it was like reading it for the first time. Following the exploits of Dulcie, Thea and Primmy has been a joy, Sarah Harrsion has a wonderful way of bringing her characters to life, so much so, that you find you really want to find out how it is all going to end. Having read Sebastian Foulkes' Birdsong recently I can say that Flowers of the Field is far superior and if anyone is deciding whether or not to give this book a try - just pop it in your shopping basket, you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A stirring tale of love, loss and loyalty during WW1 15 Jan 2000
By Liz Kaufmann - Published on
If you love stories set in a historical background with fictional characters - you'll love this. It's the story of three very different women from different backgrounds during the First World War. The writing is so eloquent and descriptive that I was living the book as I read it. I could sense the horror of the trenches, smell the awful trench smells, feel sadness, happiness, desolation, all sorts of emotions that the characters were expressing. The flow of narration kept me hooked until the very last page. Sarah Harrison has created unforgettable characters, so much so that at the end of the book I wanted to know what happened to them next. Fortunately, Sarah wrote a sequel "A Flower That's Free" (just as good). I first read "The Flowers of the Field" after graduating High school in 1980 and have read it numerous times over the years. The story still makes me cry in the same places and gasp at the graphic depictions of what WW1 was like for those fighting it. I have to say it is one of the best books I have ever had the pleasure to read!
5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL!!! 31 Aug 2012

I couldn't write a better review than the one I just read. I also read this book in the l980's. I remember it being good and I recently (2012) took it off my shelf and read it again. It loved it just as much! And I recommend it highly.
