it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction

Well Diane Chamberlain Is now my favourite author in this genre , this is an absolute gem & was a joy to read I am putting this in Historical Fiction as it was set in Baltimore Maryland 1944. I just could not stop reading it page by page the prose got stronger & stronger, I love Miss Chamberlain's writing style she gets the reader right in & I actually thought I was in Maryland with all the characters. This is a story of Forbidden love, Tess Demille's Strengths & weaknesses, as she fights for her lost son Andrew & a marriage to Henry that was a farse as well as fighting his Mother Ruth who was an absolute witch But she had her reasons, suffering throughout the prose.

I absolutely loved Tess she was so confident & strong her work as a nurse at the hospital working with children with Polio was uplifting & very inspirational, she had spunk & wouldn't back down to Ruth, meanwhile she had the support of her best friend Gina we read letters sent to Gina about Tess unhappy Marriage Henry disappearing during the lonely nights leaving Tess wondering what he was Doing. Tess had enough to worry about with Henrys Mother & Siblings against her she had the towns folk as well.

There was a lot of sadness in this book which pulled at my heart strings but a lot of happy moments as well This was my favourite novel by Diane Chamberlain to date & am beginning to like The Historical Fiction Genre it is so interesting as well as intriguing, although it also depends on the prose & if it appeals to me. 5+ another 5 stars was just outstanding.
