Publisher's Summary

In the idyllic early summer of 1914, life is good for the de Witt family. German Rudolf and his aristocratic English wife, Verena, are planning the wedding of their daughter, Emmeline, while their elder son, Arthur, is studying in Paris, and Michael is just back from his first term at Cambridge. Celia, the youngest of the de Witt children, is on the brink of adulthood and secretly dreams of escaping her carefully mapped-out future and exploring the world.

But with the onslaught of war, the de Witts find themselves in danger of losing everything they hold dear. As Celia struggles to make sense of the changing world around her, she lies about her age to join the war effort and finds herself embroiled in a complex plot that puts her and those she loves in danger.

With gripping detail and brilliant empathy, Kate Williams tells the story of Celia and her family as they are shunned by a society that previously embraced them, torn apart by sorrow, and buffeted and changed by the storms of war.

    "promises more than it delivers"
    What did you like best about Storms of War? What did you like least?

    writing and narration weak, somewhere in there is a good story


    What didn’t you like about Katie Scarfe’s performance?

    phrasing and emphasis very odd which completely got in the way of the story.


    Was Storms of War worth the listening time?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Some very 'modern' grammar /writing which did not fit the tone. disappointing.

    I liked the theme but found it too long drawn out in places.
    I would not recommend it
