This book was not for me - a very easy, quick read but totally predictable, almost to the point of being tedious. I was far, far to much of a love story for me & was not even greatly impressed with the writing style..
Will try to find someone who will appreciate it more than I did.

This book was a bit of a struggle at first, I just could not concentrate on it but once I was somewhere in the middle it finally got interesting for me and I rather enjoyed it from then on. But to tell the truth at first I thought about giving up! This book was not at all what I thought it would be, for some reason I had gotten it into my head that it was more about the Blitz and those kids but not about relationships. But am glad I read it though, it´s been on my wishlist for a while:) so thanks again for the book oppem:)

This arrived as a complete surprise from a Bookcrosser in Iceland, thankyou so much Bjorg. A title from my wishlist which I am curious to read. I wonder if I will enjoy it more than the last two readers.

If you decide to read this be prepared for an emotional read in this impressive first novel which tackles in a very atmospheric way the coming of age story of a young girl evacuated during WWII. Anna is constantly searching for love and acceptance, whilst surrounded by others that fail to communicate with each other. I found myself at times urging the characters to talk to each other.
Anna Sands is eight years old in August 1939 when with England on the brink of war she is evacuated from London to a large Yorkshire estate. The home of Elizabeth and Thomas Ashton is turned into both home and school for the evacuees that this childless couple welcome into their lives. Drawn into their unhappy relationship Anna finds herself coping not only with her own feelings of loss and survival, but also those of Thomas who becomes a mentor of sorts to her.
The characters will certainly be with me for awhile and the title is certainly very apt. I looked up the words of the song of the same title "The very thought of you, and I forget to do those little ordinary things that everyone ought to do....".
Love can be so cruel is to me the haunting memory that reading this moving novel reminds me. Not just a love story, but a story about love. As one of my favourite books this year I certainly recommend this one.
