5.0 out of 5 stars Daffodils 18 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
This is the first book I\’ve read of Alex Martin and it won\’t be the last. I loved every word from beginning to end. The story is told with intelligence and compassion taking in the horrors of World War I but not in such graphic detail as to traumatise the reader. Katy, the heroine of the piece, suffers happiness, bereavement and sorrow in a short space of time but her human reactions are understandable and the reader has an affinity with her because of her willingness to face her troubles and find a solution.
The story flows well and the descriptions of characters and countryside are almost poetic with alliteration at times. A very good story and excellently told. If I could vote more than 5 stars I would.
I am thrilled by this reader\’s review. He/She has experienced the book and Katy\’s trials and triumphs in exactly the way I hoped.
if only there were a way to have more than five stars! Maybe they should be out of a maximum of ten!
