Wasn t sure I was going to like this book as its set in the early 1900 s ari ound the first world war, bit I m loving it Maybe because its quite different to the contemporary books I normally choose to read. Enjoyable, but needs to be read with a pinch of salt Some troubles were solved without any explanation and suddenly But overall I enjoyed it. A brilliant fantastic book that had me hooked from the first page Good story with good characters made it really enjoyable I did like Ruth Davies,she was a tough character who wasn t whimsical or pathetic like a lot of girls around that era tended to be.I really did not like her mum Caitlin though,she was never done moaning and whining about everything She made the decision to stand by her daughter and say the baby was hers but she never let up about what a whole lot of trouble it was for her and refusing to help in anyway She only seemed to get worse as the story went on,a real self centred cow The only big letdown for me was the ending which was utter crap,like talk about coincidences..as if Glynis would just happen to meet up with him out of nowhere after all this time,just wise up It totally ruined the whole book for me then as it was so enjoyable until then The whole ending was totally rushed and didn t even have a proper ending,it was ridiculous It s as if there s a few chapters missing from it somewhere or at least there should be A love like oursA thoroughly good read Lots of bad times that you think its the worst then it gets worse again Then an abrupt ending
