Totally absorbing - and what an ending!
on 19 July 2000
I first read this book about 15 years ago. Unfortunately I had seen the marvellous film version (Greer Garson/Ronald Coleman) many times before, so knew the ending. Hoever, I would thoroughly recommend this book - it is so well written and one of the very few books that I have read that I actually have cried whilst doing so! It was written during the 2nd World War but is about events concerning the 1st World War. I would recommend (by the same author) 'Goodbye Mr. Chips' also.
