This review is from: The Fleethaven Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
I must thank my wife for finding this excellent trilogy. Actually she managed to get it much cheaper than it is being offered at the moment but I still think it's worth it. The story starts in the early part of the 1900's and follows three generations of two families through two world wars and up till around the 1970's. Each book really follows one generation but many of the characters remain throughout. Set mainly in rural Lincolnshire the story is complex and meaty enough to make it a really good read - certainly I went straight through from one book to the next without a break and really found it difficult to put down. Some of it is enlightening and thought provoking too, as you follow changing attitudes, particularly towards women and illegitimacy. It also describes the difficulties of farming and rural life in those earlier times. It's not all sweetness and light and there are some really sad moments along with the highs but it does end reasonably happily. The Kindle version is excellent with virtually no typos. One piece of advice - at the end of each book is the same epilogue, presumably in case the reader only reads the first book; DON'T read it until the end of book three as it actually gives away some information you are better discovering later.
