Today I am sharing my review for War Clouds Over Blackberry Farm by Rosie Clarke

My Review

I love war time historical fiction and loved that this was set between the country and London as we meet Tom & Lizzie. Within the first few pages I loved Tom and his family and the dislike for Ralph was instant and continued to grow as I read.

After a massive misunderstanding you see Lizzie embark on her dream job in London whilst Tom is left wrestling with whether he did the right thing. Once again this story was full of strong characters and true matriarchs in the mothers we get to spend time with.

I loved the references to Harper’s as I’ve loved reading that series and found that I flew through this book as war is declared and my attachment to the characters grew.

Another superb story by one of my favourite authors when it comes to historical fiction

Book Blurb

Cambridgeshire – March 1939

As the clouds of war begin to gather in Europe, the Talbot family of rural Blackberry Farm will be torn apart, just as so many families all over the world will be. Life will never be the same again.

Whilst in London, the Salmons family will feel the pain of parting and loss.

Brought together by war, the two families become intertwined and, as the outlook looks bleak, they must draw on each other’s strength to fight through the hard times.

Lizzie Johnson and Tom were sweethearts until a mistake caused a terrible rift. Lizzie takes herself off to London to heal the pain in a glamorous new job but she still loves Tom. His pride has been hurt – but deep down inside Tom still cares. Can they find happiness before their chance is gone and the whole word is swept into the terrible madness of war?

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
