Format: Paperback
This is the second book of three in the follies series and although it isn't a cliff hanger in the true sense, it certainly leaves you wanting to know how it will all end!

This book starts where the first finished off - and lets us see how the decisions they have made will alter the courses of their lifes. For Rose it seems that her dream is now over an all she has to look forward to is plain (as plain as plain is in the middle of a war) everyday life. Richard closes himself off from the world after his shattering discovery on new years eve and leads himself back into danger. And for Felix and Merry it seems all is well - but is it?

This series seems to improve with every chapter and has managed to fully engross me! Would recommend to anyone with a heart!

A thoroughly good read, a nice mix of the entertainment side of the forces and the resistance movement in France. The second in a series of four, and just as good as the first one. Seems good on accuracy as well.

Format: Paperback
A set of 4 World War 11 books a gripping story and well woven action of the 4 main characters. Excellent research has gone into the history of the period and one can 'feel' l the action of the fighting as if you were there it is so well drawn. Only down side ( and this is not the writer's fault)
where was the editor to have missed the inconsistances in the 4 books? Seaford or Shoreham for Merry's cottage, or his father dying last year when it had to be 'this' year? There were several other mistakes similar to theses but although they didn't spoil a good set of books it's just a pity they were not picked up. Still rate it 5 stars though.

I had not heard of this author before I picked this audio book up from my local library. I was delighted to at the details in the story line, especially the more personal touches. One could imagine that it was happening last year and not in the early 40s. Well written researched and presented. I have purchased this as a Xmas present. This book is part of a set of four books (Follies) I believe that there is enough information to make a film

Couldn't wait to read the second book in the series of the Follies. It was a great idea to give a snippet of this book at the end of the first one. Once you start to read you are hooked and desperate to continue until book 4. I couldn't put it down and then struggled to get book 3 but I would be amazed if anyone can read this without continuing to the last in the series. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I chose this because it was set during ww2 and thought it might be worth a read as it covered more than just people in the service. Have to say I really enjoyed it - the characters are all very likeable and the settings are all very realistic - if you like this kind of subject matter and enjoy a light read this is well worth picking up

By mossy on 7 April 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is the second of a quartet of books by Hilary Green about characters in the entertainment business during WW11. It is extremely well written and a book (all of them) which you cannot put down. The characters are fascinating and well drawn and you are given a real insight into their participation during the war.

I have always felt "at home" with books placed in the war period. These characters are exceptionally life-like and it is a pleasure to read about them. Unfortunately part 3 is unavailable so I have not read part four as I don't want to lose the thrill by jumping over one book.
