Top Customer Reviews
the period before and during the First World War. All the characters are vividly portrayed, from Nelly and her two sisters to the men who love her and are destined to fight in the Great War. The author interweaves the different social and political milieu they inhabit in a masterful way, including the lives of the rich and their stately homes, the poor rural family living on her family estate, the suffragettes, anti-Semitism and the Zionist movement. The war scenes are at the heart of the book and brilliantly describe Ellie's experiences on the front line in Flanders as a mobile canteen and ambulance driver, the horrors of life in the trenches, the battles and the wounded, together with lovely descriptions of the paintings by the love of her life, Luke, who becomes a famous war artist.
"Ellie Warburton" is a worthy successor and is highly recommended.
