another review for #Daffodils

I know I keep banging on about reviews but, due to changes that Amazon have made, they are becoming rare beasties. This one perfectly captures everything I was trying to achieve when I wrote Daffodils.

"5.0 out of 5 stars The breadth and depth of the "war to end all wars"

ByMeiguion May 3, 2018
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

The scope and depth of this book is enthralling, as it envelopes the reader in three different aspects of "the war to end all wars". Beginning with a blunt view of class arrogance, it moves on to the general home front as war creeps into all of England--a viewpoint rarely considered in war stories. Next we are confronted with the ugliness of the war from a soldier's perspective. But the surprising aspect is a view of women's roles in the same theater. There are, of course, books which have covered these areas individually, but to read of all three intertwined provides a perspective on the impact on individuals unique to this genre. And the reading is much more enjoyable and satisfying than reading a lot of academic histories on the topics! I highly recommend it."
