It's been a long time since I've read a straight historical fiction. It's been mostly historical romance lately and I do find myself missing plain old historical fiction. This one seemed like the perfect book to bring me back into historical fiction.
I spent much of the time reading this book wanting to shake and/or slap Margot. Does this woman ever make a decision for herself based on her own wants and desires? She is lead around by everyone else's expectations. She becomes engaged to a man based solely on the expectations of others. It was frustrating mainly because I liked her and wanted her to be a bit stronger. She was also a bit static. Nothing that happens to her has any sort of effect. I was hoping for some growth with her but I don't feel as if I got any.
If you're looking for a historical fiction about World War I with a nice romance storyline, definitely give this one a try.
