I liked this one even more than the first one and found myself gripped from the first page.

It starts with Rose having to choose between Richard and Matthew and to everyone surprise she chooses neither but then later tried to get in contact with Richard but he has buried himself in secret work and is no where to be found.

The characters in this book are really strong. I love Felix and Merry's relationship, it's so sweet and I feel bad that they have to hide it at time when everyone should have been able to embrace love.

I like Richard and Rose but to be honest I hope they don't end up as a couple. I just don't think they are right for each other. Richard seems to have trouble staying faithful and I don't think they would be happy. I felt he was more suited to Chantal who I wasn't that keen on in the last book but really warmed to her this time round. Their story does not end well and it left me in tears.

I really want to find out what happens in the next book but I don't have it! Onto the wishlist it goes!

Thank you, redfox5, for this book sent via the Iconic sweepstakes! (along with another, sent for the Global sweeps. I never expected to win one, let alone two sweeps, and I appreciate your generosity and the cost to send two books to the U.S., especially since you are "send only" on both Glad you were able to combine them and, hopefully, save a little on postage).

It looks like a great read!

I enjoyed the smooth flow of the writing, and especially the characters -found myself really caring about all of them. The book really showed how the war disrupted many lives in many ways. Richard's story, especially, had me on the edge of my seat!

Not having read the previous book in the series wasn't an obstacle. However, it being a series, there were several loose ends in this second installment that were not tied up as I'd hoped they would be, so I'll just HAVE to get the next one (Theatre of War) and see what happens. :-) It does stand alone ok, though.

Thanks again, redfox, for introducing me to this wonderful story and author!
