    A Foreign Field Central

    The novel A Foreign Field is a simple book that most of today's youth cannot relate to. Although the plot is rather uncomplicated but the story has a deep meaning. A book that is an easy read will change the average person's outlook on war.
    A young girl is in close contact with a soldier and their relationship gradually grows stronger. The main character, Ellen, must overcome obstacles with her own life such as cooking, cleaning, and caring after her troubled younger brother. Her mom is always at work and juggling school and helping with the house poses problems for the young girl. The she meets a soldier, Stephen, and he is able to keep her company. Constantly running into problems, Ellen looks to Stephen for help. His big heart and intelligent remarks make for a thrilling story. Then when Stephen is sent out to the battle grounds all Ellen has to look forward to are his letter. Although the story is extremely easy to read it sends an inspirational message to all people.
    The author Gillian Chan is known for her short but delightful stories. A Foreign Field is lightly based on her life as a child. If you enjoyed one of Chan's other novels such as The Carved Box or Golden Girl and Other Stories, then you are sure to enjoy A Foreign Field.
    For the reader that enjoys scandal and difficult situations then this story is for you. Overall A Foreign Field is a book that is meant for twelve year olds. If you are tired of the same love story, do not read!
