really liked it
Read in July, 2012

such captivating stories, complex plots, interesting characters. Read this one so fast I missed most of the "bread crumbs" and it didn't sort itself out till the very end. a few curiosities about the WWI contex: Bess always seemed to have enuf petrol no matter what. This stuck me as a bit unreal. Her Colonel Sahib mystery dad always seems to get her onto transportation and into a location. Nice use of dues ex machina.

Bess's mother always arranges to have Bess's uniforms starched and pressed. Bess has a lovely country home to which she can return when in need of rest, recuperation, and rejuvenation.

I like Bess's courage and individuality nd intellect, but she's pure fiction and so most of her activities and heroism are helped along by the authors' creative license.

Tea: it's enuf to make you think the Brits never eat, just boil up the water and throw back a cup of tea. many many many times it seemed tea was the only sustenance for days on end. I kow they love their tea, but most human beings now and then need something with more nutrition?

While I ponder this situation, I think Iwill have a cup of tea.
