LoveReading View on The Soldier's Daughter

A poignant and moving story, that allows you to travel back in time to the Second World War, to experience rationing, air raids and evacuation alongside the characters. The author installs her engaging cast, from different walks of life, from town, from the country, differing in age range and moral fibre, then she really tests their mettle. In a time when life was lived for the moment, when you had to learn to make do and to reinvent, family and friends are key. Observe as the shadow of war slides over the land then without mercy tightens its grip. Wonder as love steals up unannounced, flounders, grows, deepens. Bear witness as kindness and cruelty, devotion and bitterness, friendship and greed all battle it out on the Home Front. ~ Liz Robinson

The Soldier's Daughter Synopsis

Briony Valentine lives at home with her mother Lois, father James and two younger siblings. For as long as Briony can remember, she has been soft on the boy next door, Eddie, but her best friend Ruth has feelings for him too. When the Luftwaffe begin their bombing campaign of the midlands, Eddie is called up to serve, as is James, and Briony's world is torn apart. Each day the telegrams pour in to different families along their street and Bryony can only pray for their safety. Lois' family disowned her when she met Briony's father, but when the wartime evacuees need a safe home - Lois' parents open their doors. The three Valentine children are dispatched to Cornwall - far from the bombs and far from the only world they've ever known.
