Thought I’d let you know how much I admired Daffodils. The scope and breadth of your plot was so wide-ranging, geographically, socially and emotionally!
You must have researched the First World War thoroughly – the detail was so fine and made the war episodes and their aftermath so immediate.
The early scenes of village life, with all of the delightful characters reminded me of Hardy – is he a favourite of yours?
Very much enjoyed Katy’s journey from subservience ( lowly maid dusting the books in the great folks’ manor forced to submit to whatever treatment was meted out) to independent, self- reliant womanhood. An unexpected by-product of war and thank heavens for 2013!
Well done indeed.
