    1 thought on “The Burning Roses”

    1. The events of 1915 include major battles with heavy casualties for the British. The men of the Morland family are widely employed in the war, from Ned and Bertie at the front, to Lennie guarding the Suez Canal and Frank in Malta. A star-crossed love affair lends intrigue and there is much about the war on the home front in Britain as well as scenes of battle in Belgium and France. Both the London and Yorkshire branches of the family have adventures in this book.

    2. Another year in the First World War for the Morlands. This focuses less on the battlefield than the previous book- we hear more about Jessie nursing and what Violet and Venetia are up to. Once again, the battle scenes are highly detailed. I was a little upset that the Anzac only rated a couple of paragraphs, but I suppose this is the English version of history- Aussies would say (a lot) more about the 'heavy losses' at Anzac Cove.

    3. I love this historical fiction series which follows the stories of generations from the same family home in England. This volume in the series finds the women grappling with how to make a difference and reconcile their ambitions with their place in society and their relationships with various other men & women. Everyone in the story struggles with the changing economy and the ugliness of the trench fighting during first world war.

    4. Great to catch up with the morland dynasty again. The women are as usual stuck in loveless marriages, having affairs or otherwise challenging social conventions (like flying aeroplanes and practising medicine). Another fabulous historical romp where you can switch your brain off and simply be entertained.

    5. It's so sad the way this ended, cried.Watching Ned and Jessie's marriage fall apart made me think how even the happiest of relationships can collapse when there is sadness involved.

    6. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is many the long, detailed battle scenes. They're just not my thing.
