Obviously, as a novella, I was expecting this to be short. I don’t know if it’s the genre or just the style of writing in this particular one, but it took a while to get used to how fast the action moved. It was like diving in and out of this family’s life only occasionally, usually when something really important was happening. You sort of had to fill in the rest yourself, which is fine because it stretches the imagination.
It was a good, solid story. A bit of a soap opera, set during the war and involving two brothers, one girl, and their extended families. I enjoyed reading it and was sad when it came to an end, I would have liked to know more about what happened next but having said that, it was a really good ending too. Not soppy with happiness but tying the loose ends together nicely.
