MY REVIEW:

I have followed the Harper Series since book one and I just keep loving each of the book more and more. The writing as I have come to expect from Rosie Clarke is always exceptional, well-written, amazing and complex characters I have come to love both old and new, and well-researched. I enjoyed the time period of early 1900's WWI and the comings and goings of the everyday life of people and how they are affected by the war as it continues to last in the setting of London and Oxford Street at the Emporium. 

In this installment the Harper Girls are coming to the realities of the horrors of the war and even experiencing this first hand. Everyone seems to be feeling the effects of the war and most especially Maggie as she is in the front lines as a nurse assistant, but each one of the Harper Girls are suffering at through their own ways. These ladies are certainly heroes. 

Amazing writing that just gets better and better. This one was so heart wrenching and a really amazing read of a time so harrowing and yet the Harper Girls seem to always know how to bring hope around this tumultuous times. A tear jerker of a read, and so well done. I really oved it!
