    I don t understand all the glowing reviews of this book Did I read a first draft, or something There seemed to be some good plot points there, but the whole story was just put together really strangely It lurched along from one idea to the next, none of them being fully rendered I kept scrolling back, thinking I d missed the resolution or explanation of something that was hinted at, only to realize that no, there really was noinformation.In addition to a developmental editor, the book a I don t understand all the glowing reviews of this book Did I read a first draft, or something There seemed to be some good plot points there, but the whole story was just put together really strangely It lurched along from one idea to the next, none of them being fully rendered I kept scrolling back, thinking I d missed the resolution or explanation of something that was hinted at, only to realize that no, there really was noinformation.In addition to a developmental editor, the book also badly needed a copy editor It started off relatively clean, but after a few chapters, there were continual errors in grammar, word choice homophones, punctuation, and spelling It s like someone edited a little bit of it but stopped, and then the book was published anyway

    Gripping Hardly A very mediocre book Just when you expected something to happen it was resolved without any conflict whatsoever I couldn t wait for the book to end and only finished it because I paid good money for it.

    Ok, I m just going to be blunt This book was stupid The characters were not the slightest bit believable Elenor had been treated like crap by her father and brothers her entire life, and yet somehow when she went to live with her Aunt instead of still being the beaten down person she always had been, she became very assertive when dealing with George, who was basically Chuckie the potential wife beateryet, whenever Elenor, who he neither liked nor respected, bossed him around, he listened Ok, I m just going to be blunt This book was stupid The characters were not the slightest bit believable Elenor had been treated like crap by her father and brothers her entire life, and yet somehow when she went to live with her Aunt instead of still being the beaten down person she always had been, she became very assertive when dealing with George, who was basically Chuckie the potential wife beateryet, whenever Elenor, who he neither liked nor respected, bossed him around, he listened to her and did as he was told Neither character was believable in any way.Can someone explain to me the trend lately of writers saying their characters are pointing at things Unless you are telling someone where something is, you don t go around constantly pointing at things So annoying As for the idea that a CHILD having German parents is such a TERRIBLE thing, please.I may be wrong, but it is my understanding that when a child is born they become a citizen of whatever country they were born in That would make Rose British, not German Either way, is there anyone on earth, even during war time, who would think a 7 year old child is a spy, or dangerous in any way No By the way, you see the way I am using commas It is the correct way, unlike the 7 million incorrectly used commas in this turd of a book Where was the editor If the nonsense of the child being German had been completely omitted from this book and if it had been edited, it would not have been a bad story Just a story of an orphaned child being taken in by a young woman who fell in love with a Canadian soldier.that would have been enough The only part of the book that didn t completely annoy me was the bit about the farm and the land girls who helped out.except for Titch, of course She was only there to make a fuss about Rose being German So glad I m done with this Oh, and like many others have said.what the h was that ending Did the author run out of paper or time I ve never seen such an abrupt ending to a book in my life Very weird

    Ok so I have to commend anyone who can sit down and write a novel It takes time and effort That being said, how the actual fuck did this get published as is No seriously, how And how are the reviews so positive The writing is bad, the pace is choppy, I actually thought a couple of times that I had a book that was missing pages and the plot itself is just flat This book was like reading a first draft It seemed as though no one had bothered to edit or review it prior to sending it to print Ok so I have to commend anyone who can sit down and write a novel It takes time and effort That being said, how the actual fuck did this get published as is No seriously, how And how are the reviews so positive The writing is bad, the pace is choppy, I actually thought a couple of times that I had a book that was missing pages and the plot itself is just flat This book was like reading a first draft It seemed as though no one had bothered to edit or review it prior to sending it to print To say I was surprised to see the HarperCollins logo on this is an understatement It would make farsense if it had been self published One of the things I pay attention to most while I m reading is how the dialogue is written 99.9% of the dialogue in this book is bad Like really bad Like so bad I questioned if the author had spoken to another human being in their life The banter between Elenor Jackson had such promise at times but not good enough to make me overlook the long, rushed, unnatural bits of dialogue happening between every other character Oh, I had such hope for this book The reviews were glowing and the plot seemed right up my alley but good lord were my expectations not even close to being met Clearly I m in the minority with this one but I will own this review This is time I will never get back and it took so much effort to not DNF this one However, I can not hold it against anyone who walked away well before the end

    I really enjoyed about 3 4 of the book It had interesting characters, and Elenor s story was very engrossing However, the dialogue bothered me since it did not strike me as authentic for the times and used terms like being proactive When the book got to the secret part, the story really fell apart and if you gave it any thought, just didn t make sense It was poorly formulated with many elements underdeveloped and poorly explained Seriously, what was everyone so panicked about Who would I really enjoyed about 3 4 of the book It had interesting characters, and Elenor s story was very engrossing However, the dialogue bothered me since it did not strike me as authentic for the times and used terms like being proactive When the book got to the secret part, the story really fell apart and if you gave it any thought, just didn t make sense It was poorly formulated with many elements underdeveloped and poorly explained Seriously, what was everyone so panicked about Who would you findthreatening and vile, a sweet seven year old war orphan with a lot that s unknown about her background info or the vicious, skanky rumor monger who openly brags about her affair with a dangerous escaped Nazi Yeah, the last quarter really is that dumb and badly needs big booster shots of plausibility, cohesiveness, realism, and at least some sense

    Flat characters, flat writing, and all the exciting parts are totally skimmed over It seemed like it was leading to a big finale, but just sort of petered out The ending was stupid Over half of the book was described in the book description provided by the publisher, leaving little for the reader to actually discover The editing was terrible.

    England during the blitz.Interesting story I think the character development could have been done better I found the writing stilted and some things went totally without explanation.There was a mention by Jackson that he had received a picture of a plane from Rose asking about the plane he flew Rose said she did not send that The matter was dropped there rather than used as a hint that Rose s father had ulterior motives.Elenor left servants she did not like nor trust in charge of her home an England during the blitz.Interesting story I think the character development could have been done better I found the writing stilted and some things went totally without explanation.There was a mention by Jackson that he had received a picture of a plane from Rose asking about the plane he flew Rose said she did not send that The matter was dropped there rather than used as a hint that Rose s father had ulterior motives.Elenor left servants she did not like nor trust in charge of her home and belongings There had even been evidence that the man had been pilfering her aunts belongings.Over and over, situations were presented that nothing came of Too many loose ends
