Perfect! Can't Wait for More!

I'm pretty picky with my books, and I loved this. I can't recommend it enough!

WHY YOU NEED THIS BOOK:

-The WW2 setting was fascinating, had heart, yet wasn't sad or depressing.
-The details were perfect and engrossing.
-I loved that this book was for adults without any "adult" scenes, swearing, etc.
-It was a believable story, which made me love it more.
-The heroin was wonderful and relate-able.
-The murderer was a surprise, yet there were clues scattered throughout so it made sense at the end.
-The narration was superb.
-I normally listen to books that are 8 hours long, but this didn't seem long to me. It had a nice pace.

I can think of no reason you wouldn't love this. Just buy it!

Should be in the Young Adult Section,

Poppy Redfern often acts and sounds like she is a teenager, not an adult with a responsible position. I often wanted to shake her and tell her to grow up. If you are looking for a book with no sexual tension or bad language, this is it. A few reluctant hugs are the most you will get between Poppy and American GI Giff, even though she thinks she is in love with him.

A good editor good have chopped about 2 hours from the narrative and saved the reader from Poppy's angst and repetitive suspicion of everyone in the village, accept her grandparents of course. And her alter ego, the main character in a novel she is writing, keeps injecting herself into the story. It is annoying.

I think this book would fit better into the Young Adult section. The dialogue is simplistic, the language does not always fit the period, and the long internal dialogues stop the story from moving forward. Why does the reader care about oranges in California? Most of all, women characters who constantly do stupid things are annoying.
