A nice short story,
This review is from: Sharpe's Christmas (Kindle Edition)
The War is over and Sharpe has settled down to life as a French farmer, living with the widow of one of his former adversaries. Life is hard, but they're happy, until a face from the past re-appears. The rest is fairly standard Sharpe fare, with no real surprises, but if you have the time its a good yarn to settle down to in front of the fire on a Winter's afternoon.

I dont understand how the review says the war is over when the book says its 1813 and the war is most certainly not over, this review is for a different sharpe book.

Sorry, this was probably a typo and meant 1815, post the Battle of Waterloo.

Ah!! Now I've cracked it - you are reviewing Sharpe' Ransom, not his Christmas!! The 2 stories are sold together...
I don't think you can have read the introduction to Sharpe's Christmas - I know they are boring usually, but worth it, as Bernard Cornwell puts the context very clearly. He says " It falls just after "Sharpe's Regiment", 1813, towards the end of the Peninsular War, and harks back to the friends he made in 1799 when Sharpe was at Seringapatam.
