About this deal

Summary: A World War One love story but also a hugely moving story about the physical and mental scars of the war, both on those who fought and particularly on those left behind. They are the Romeo and Juliet of the story - star-crossed lovers who are torn apart by circumstances.

There is something in this book for just about everyone and I believe it will appeal to a huge audience. In a fit of fury and boyish pride, Riley enlists in the army and finds himself involved in the transformative nightmare of the twentieth century.The three women mostly function as lenses into women’s lives at the time, and Young can’t resist a bit of authorial-standpoint posturing about feminism, the role of women and social change.

I rushed through the last 200 pages so enraptured with each character with their flaws not Always predictable. He begins to have trouble communicating with Nadine, afraid to tell her real things, but he builds strong loyalties and friendship with comrades, especially his Captain, Peter Locke. Great advances in this field have always been made as a consequence of the horrific injuries inflicted on combatants in wars. Sur fond de drame historique et de romance impossible, l'auteur dépeint tant la société anglaise au temps de la première guerre mondiale que les motivations qui poussaient tant de jeunes hommes de se lancer au combat. Already short listed for the Costa Prize, it wouldn't surprise me to see it appearing on the 2012 Orange Prize list as well.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I felt like you really got a good sense of who she was and her thoughts and her feelings, which made it much easier to connect with her. I tried it because it was recommended but the title made it sound like very slushy romance - it's not at all.

It was followed by two sequels, The Heroes' Welcome and Devotion, and a memoir, You Left Early: A True Story of Love and Alcohol, about her relationship with the composer Robert Lockhart. It's a book that will stay with me for a long time and whose characters will live long in the memory. I liked reading her chapters, even though I found her to be ridiculous and vain (though I think that was more due to women of her class in that time).This is the story about two soldiers during World War 1 and the women left behind in England who love them.
