A twisty tale of murder and secret relationships in village life post-war England.
I was not expecting this book to pack such an emotional punch but it did. I didn't see one of the murders coming and it took me completely by surprise.
I love Iris' outlook on life and how she wants to live it on her own terms regardless of society's expectations. It is refreshing to meet such a character in this genre and I hope she continues to have fun and doesn't cave to societal pressures anytime soon.
I really love how this series is historically rich in detail. It really feels like I'm in post-war England and can see first-hand the impact the war had on society in general. Shell shock among soldiers is pretty well known and taught in history classes but I had never considered the effects the war had on women who worked on the front line in field or military hospitals.
A fantastic book; an unpredictable and absorbing read.
