This book was almost 1000 pages long. The editing was very good. The book was much better than I thought it would be. It was set in England during WWI. The book was a bit different then the overview. I found it very interesting. I could actually see the events unfold and picture the characters in my head, because the details were so vivid and believable. At times this book was distressing to read, there was a self induced abortion and child sexual abuse by priests, which horrified me. There was mild cursing, murder, child abuse, rape, sex, alchalism, spousal abuse, war injuries, prostitution, adultry, diseases, extreme proverty, drug abuse, star crossed lovers, family descension, horrible cruelity and working conditions. I laughed and cried as I read this well edited book. There were very few errata in it. With a novel as long as this one, that is amazing. The ending was a little above average, yet I would have liked to have known how Nell's, Cathleen's, Billy's and Janice's lives turned out. A sequal would be nice. For readers 18 and up, due to adult content and violence.

This was a good story although just as you were really getting involved into one persons story, that particular storyline ended and it jumped ahead several years into another persons story that entertwined and it took several chapters before you could get caught back up. It was very disturbing and jarring and i didnt like that. The overall story itself was ok.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
