Today is my spot on the blog tour for the wonderful historical fiction series Harpers Heroes by Rosie Clarke. I read this a couple of weeks ago and it was a fitting book to have read to commemorate Remembrance Day, set in World War I.
I am loving the Harper Girls series, in this fiction story we spent some time on the frontline with Maggie and her new friends as well as spending time in the Harper store, it was great to revisit old characters that you’ve loved but also get to know new ones. A story that is reminding you what life was like for everyone during WWI, the war that should have only lasted a few months.
I love historical fiction especially the early 1900’s to late 1950’s and this story is a wonderful reminder of what the men and women sacrificed and the constant heartache experienced during these times. There is joy and heartache within these pages, the descriptions and smells from the frontline are vivid and make it drive home the impact of what our great grandparents would have experienced either in their childhood or as young adults.
I can’t wait for the next book to be released to see what comes next for these wonderful characters. A highly recommended read that I really enjoyed.
From the bestselling author of the Welcome to Harpers Emporium and The Mulberry Lane Series.
