The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy

My rating: 3.6 of 5 stars

 A wife who's husband has gone off to war and is left in their home on Guernsey Island to take care of their two daughters and his mother-in-law while the Germans occupy the Island. So many beautiful descriptions that make you feel the conflicting emotions and what it would have been like to have lived in that time.

  1. I've read this book three times now. The author captures perfectly the horrific choices one would be forced to make in similar circumstances. I confess, I'm a WWII junkie, but the beautiful depictions of the island's scenery juxtaposed against the brutality of the German occupation were gripping in a new way from other books of this genre. And the protagonist's conflicting feelings about her captor(s) is excellently and compellingly related. One of my "best of all" books.
