I have now read all four of The Follies books and each one, in it own different way, is a winner. I have never before read, then re-read books because I enjoyed them so much, until I discovered this set of World War 11 books. The four main characters are so well drawn, they could be actual friends and the information regarding how people managed during the war years is amazing. Hilary Green deserves a medal for the research which she must have done to have produced such top quality material in all four books. Only down side - not knowing what happens to Felix and Merry and Rose and Richard in after war years. But perhaps that is best left to your own imagination!
