Flower of Scotland Emma Blair

I would class this as a family saga which I dont really tend to read apart from Penny Vicenzi who I love lol.

We see the story from the viewpoints of several family members and their own individual experiences of the war.

If you like happy romantic novels this is not for you, its quiet a bleak story and while certain fa

Sweet and easy Women's type fiction. Easy to read, easy to forget but enjoyable all the same.

Saga about the Drummond family. It starts well, but there was too much sex and violence for my tastes, early on in the book. The plot seemed to focus on prostitution, betrayal, and rather cardboard characters. Eventually I gave up and read the last few chapters. It was easy to see what had happened, so I didn't bother to read the middle. Unimpressed.

A story which demonstratesd how the Great War (wwi)affected and transformed everyday lives of families, especially womenb, and how it transformed a whole generation's attitudes and way of life.
