Why isn't this book on kindle?
on 28 September 2014
A marvellous book which I have read recently for the fifth or sixth time over the years. Paris and the Chateau Douzy, a vineyard in the Champagne district of France are the main settings in the early part of the story. The family involved move through love affairs, betrayal and action as the war advances. Detailed descriptions of Paris of the day and accurate research into the background leading to war make this book an absolute page turner, right up to the last page. Many historical figures also flit through the pages - I wish history lessons at school had been this thrilling!
I have read and enjoyed all of Noel Barber's novels many times, although this is my favourite - the other five are all now on kindle, so I have to wonder why this one has been excepted. Shame, I would love to have the whole collection on my kindle.
