Gifts of War by Mackenzie Ford
This book is wonderful in capturing the tragedy, drama, and difficulties that people lived with during World War 1 in England. I enjoy reading stories of the times during the World Wars, and the author nicely wove the love story with historical facts. The descriptions of life during these years is very realistic, and I thought the author did a good job in telling about the changing role of women during this era.
This story is based on a love borne of deceit, omission and the tragedy of secrets.
A few times I thought the plot a bit contrived, but the ending had an unusual twist.
A good story and a good read.
