The writer really captures the feel oft he period, but I confess the romantic aspects of these stories feel a bit flat to me. I like the Sweet sisters, but they are more interesting to me single.
I like the idea of baking and cooking in wartime and the author really explores this area well. I will pick up the next one, despite the boring romance.
