SO much more than a romance!
on 10 December 2015
I started this book with a bit of trepidation as it's described as a romance book which isn't up my street at all but the story sounded interesting so I thought I would give it a go. I was really glad that I did. I don't think classing it as a romance dose it justice (maybe that's based on my own book genre prejudices lol) but I felt that the story was so much more than just romance.
Amy is a brilliant character who I liked from the start, I felt her pain and her happiness, and was constantly rooting for things to work out for her.
You get a real sense of what rural civilian life was like during the war, and how those years changed people, their views and their values.
I would 100% recommend this book, I read it in two days and literally couldn't put it down
