This review is from: Days of Grace (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This novel had me bouncing from one time to another at first its hard to get to grips with..Nora a poor girl .from the Eastend of London about 12 years old whilst the country is on the brink of war and how she meets Grace to the days when she is seemingly dying of an undiagnosed illness...a young woman she has taken to and helps her bring her child into the world is part of the skipping and time shifting...there are personal things that dwell within a young girl's mind during those pre war years on the onset and the friend she makes during the mass child evacuation during the war years in the Kentish countryside, Grace and her family...her lonely mother and estranged father have it all...in contrast to her own mother who is a widow struggling on her own, this new life draws her away from the things she knew and enjoyed the company of Grace and the luxuries that surrounded her there....she became an avid student whilst Grace liked to have fun and was out of control in alot of her ways..despite this there is a sisterly bond between them a closeness thats beyond mere friendship..the story keeps jolting from one time to another on alternative chapters and that can be quite difficult to follow and I suppose cleverly written...you are quite a way into the story before you find out what happened to Grace, there are twists and turns in the plot..leading to a surprising climax..it is a well written story, worth reading.
