Predictable and ultimately disappointing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Gathering Storm (Paperback)
The best I can say is that this effort was a pleasant light read. Nothing deep at all. The "standard" old house down in Cornwall(why always Cornwall?).Very little characterisation. And the supposed twist in the tail-that Tom was really Beatrice's and Guy's child was obvious from very early on.
Being very pernickity, it was not true that in Paris prisons resisters were taken out and shot in the courtyard-they were shipped to Fort Mont Valérien for this treatment. Nor were women resisters shot-they were taken to Germany and either guillotined or ended their days in one of the many concentration camps.
How some of these books find a publisher beats me.
