Following on with the life of Eveleen Hardcastle and her family from the author's previous book, Tangled Threads, this story takes the reader on a journey through the first World War. Showing how it wasn't only the men who went to fight that suffered and had their lives drastically changed but so did the women who were left behind to cope. It shows a compulsive timeless love from the women, that never changed while their menfolk were away and how they never gave up despite the uphill struggles they encountered from dealing with difficult relatives and a different type of working skill while longing for their loved ones to come home safely from the war.
Margaret Dickinson has once again produced a rivetting story full of love and intrigue. She uses the setting this time as close to Belvoir Castle in Grantham and once again the book is hard to put down once you have commenced reading, be prepared to shed a tear for the characters and warn your family that you will be ignoring them for a while. Excellent.
