Week 16 – Before The Fall

Feeling a little bit historical I delved into Juliet West’s Before the Fall.  The book is set in 1916, war is raging Hannah’s husband has gone off to war, leaving her alone with the kids.  She finds a guy she likes, relationship develops, gets rather rawr…Then of course as in any war style book, the reality kicks in with a pregnancy.

Oh the drama! Especially at that time… The book is beautifully descriptive in parts but maybe lacks a bit in describing the man in the middle.  The title is in reference to Thomas Hardy who features quite a bit in the book for any Hardy fans out there.  I liked this book, for a romance it wasn’t half bad and it painted an awesome picture of wartime Britain.  Take a look in if you see this one on the shelves!
