4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasure to Read, 1 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Gathering Storm (Paperback)
Rachel Hore's latest offering centres on the role of females ass SOE Agent in the Second World War. In present times Lucy, following her father's death, is investigating why he changed so much after the death of his mother in 2000.

The story is well written, centered far more in the past with the recounting of Beatrice's story of her early years at Calyon Manor through the war years as a young woman. Although the links between the two families involved isn't hard to guess at the story flows well and is the roles of women in the war clearly well researched. I didn't enjoy this as much as The Glass Painter's Daughter which is the best of her five novels, but the writing, the characterisation and the acknowledgement that what we read is one woman's version of the truth means that this book is still a good read.
