New 5***** review for Daffodils July 2013

5.0 out of 5 stars A treat for Alex Martin's readers, 16 July 2013
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daffodils (Kindle Edition)
I admired Daffodils greatly. The scope and breadth of the plot was so wide-ranging, geographically, socially and emotionally!

Alex Martin have researched the First World War thoroughly -the detail was so fine and made the war episodes and their aftermath so immediate.

The early scenes of village life, with all of the delightful characters reminded me of Hardy.

Very much enjoyed Katy's journey from subservience ( lowly maid dusting the books in the great folks' manor forced to submit to whatever treatment was meted out) to independent, self- reliant womanhood. An unexpected by-product of war and thank heavens for 2013!

Well done indeed to Alex Martin.
