5.0 out of 5 stars A very powerful story, 8 Jan 2014
An extremely powerful story set against the backdrop of the 1st World War. A very graphic account of the brutality of war and how war brutalises the people concerned in this young boy’s journey to try and assuage the guilt he feels after killing his brother. Very well written and, although the story is fictional, the battles, places and bravery have obviously been well researched. Some of the vivid descriptions of the gruesome conditions but also the comradeship and bravery of these (mostly) young people should serve as a reminder in these centenary years of just what the people involved had to suffer.

I enjoyed the book but unfortunately read the 2nd part before the 1st, but still managed to relate and warm to the characters and to the belief that true love can last forever. Will get around to reading the 1st part soon.
I love the fact that that the characters were time travellers and that Elvaenna went through time and space to be with her 'true love'.
The author carefully crafts the story so that the time travellers are prepared to meet the problems and dangers which face them on both sides of the time zones.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very intriguing read, 12 Sep 2013
The mystery and intrigue that surrounds The Secret creates a very interesting read. Who did it and why? Will he find out why Ellie is so secretive and which girl will he settle for in the end? Thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is one which I will read again and again. The author obviously has a great deal of knowledge of design and this, too, I found interesting.
