A Precious Gift

Well written as usual by Rosie Goodwin. But don’t read this book is you feel low. The second part (book) was so horrid going into too much detail of the First World War. I nearly gave up on the book, but as usual I was dying to know how it all turned out.
Perhaps it’s because I am in my eighties, and war and is was very real to me
