Well researched and enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book, against my expectations, it had stared at me from my kindle for quite a while before I actually got around to reading it. The writing could have been slightly better but I thought the storylines were great and I certainly didn't anticipate the ending. Interestingly it still left a couple of loose ends, for example we are left not knowing what happened to Frances' baby, which is exactly how it would have been in the war and made the story all the better for leaving it hanging there.
Because I read it on kindle I didn't see there was a prologue until I had finished the book and reading it afterwards was I think better than if I had read it beforehand. I also went back and read the first chapter again which was useful. If you have the paper copy then I would definitely recommend leaving the prologue until last.
Good read and very insightful of women's lives during the war years.
