Part one of the trilogy, "Just you wait and see" introduces us to Ella Palmer and her family. Set in a Yorkshire mining community at the outbreak of WWII the story is beautifully written and well-told. Interesting both from the historical and sociological points of view, the book is primarily a powerful description of complex relationships. I was continuously surprised by how much has changed over the last 70 years.
Hes a great writer and this book is a good example of the passions and life in a wartime Yorkshire village.His descriptions of intimacy are beautiful and powerful without becoming crude. This is part of a trilogy and all of them are excellent. Give us this day and Next of kin make up the rest.Highly recommended.
