Recently in England for five weeks, I picked this novel up and immediately was drawn in. As an American, I did not comprehend the agony the British had undergone during the blitz. Francis' story is a very personal one: combining both family and national losses. Yet it abides in a place of hope new beginnings.
It touched me.

I really enjoyed this book. It dealt with a number of topics from war, death, religion, abuse both physical and emotional, and POW's.

It was set during WW2 and the story centred around 3 sisters. You got the war from their position and the effects it had on them. I liked the way the story developed and the intermingling of the various aspects of war life and what life was like for the women left behind. The characters were very believable and you warmed to them and wanted what was best for them.
