It rained all day today so I curled up with this lovely book ( #ARC) Set in early 1920‘s and then in mid 1930‘s. A story of love and motherhood that will leave you in tears. I‘m sure this book will find many admirers but it was a little overwrought and melodramatic for my taste. Three stars but not my favorite of the year. Fans of Beatriz Williams, Kate Quinn and Kristin Hannah will find this book deeply satisfying. #NetGalley
1754. Inseparable since birth & growing up in India, Theo and Connie Courtney are torn apart by the tragic death of their parents. Theo, wracked with guilt, seeks salvation in combat and conflict, joining the British in the war against the French and Indian Army. Connie, and abused and brutalised by a series of corrupt guardians, makes her way to France, where she is welcomed into high society. An epic story of tragedy, loss, betrayal and courage.
