Review taken from Blog Post #109 in April 2011, after borrowing book from library.

I recently had a conversation about the Suffragette Movement with my Daughter a short time ago, and this would be a good book to read to try to understand what those women went through to try and get the vote ... it's also a wholesome good read too.

As the night ends has to be one of the best books I have read this year, for me it's not as good as Distant images but it's still a fantastic read.

Very Emotional!!! Loved that it wasn't just a basic love story between two people but three romances going on at the same time!
