Louisa Young was also careful to show the reader how the war continued to affect her characters after their traumatic experiences and this aspect of the story, I believe, is continued in the author's sequel to this novel: The Heroes' Welcome which is due to be released very soon. Nadine and Riley, only eighteen when the war starts, and with problems of their own already, want above all to make promises - but how can they when the future is not in their hands?

Pour moi, le roman de Louisa Young n'est pas tout à fait du même niveau littéraire que ceux que je viens de mentionner. The casualties of war are not only the physical injuries but the mental ones, both on those who fought and those left behind. Daarvoor, toen de wereld nog zo anders was, is Nadine Waveney in een uitspatting van verliefdheid met haar jeugdliefde Riley Purefoy getrouwd. There is something in this book for just about everyone and I believe it will appeal to a huge audience. Voor de liefhebbers van Oorlog en terpentijn 'Als je één boek over de gevolgen van de Eerste Wereldoorlog leest, laat het dan dit zijn.

Not having that background also made it difficult to see what the motive was for what the characters do throughout the book. La storia sconvolgente di Riley Purefoy e Nadine Waveney muove il lettore attraverso vicessitudini e sofferenze altrui con il pungolo fisso nella mente del ricongiungimento, della giustizia, perché in un mondo giusto questo romanzo non si sarebbe nemmeno dovuto scrivere. He can’t bear to touch Julia despite her flirtatious attempts to be intimate because he’s done such monstrous things. The blurbs the publisher placed on the jacket speak of this “epic love story” about “enduing love” and its comparison to other popular romance novels .

Riley is taken back to the Waveney home and is soon taken under their wing, making friends with the children, Noel and Nadine, and working as an artist's model and assistant for a family friend, painter Sir Alfred Pleasant.

Rose is working under the revolutionary doctor, Major Gillies, and helping him to patch-up wounded soldiers with horrendous facial scarring.

The advance copy that I was given had a statement that proclaimed that the book was the most powerful book that I would read all year. Also in Sidcup is Peter's cousin, Rose, an independent and very resourceful young woman working as a nurse at the Queen's Hospital under the pioneering plastic surgeon, Major Gillies (a real-life character).Maar Riley is gewond en verminkt teruggekeerd; een normaal leven lijkt onbegrijpelijk en liefde onbevattelijk. But when Nadine’s mother objects to the unsuitable courtship Riley turns his mind to the war effort and naively signs up to fight ‘for the duration of the war’. This storyline however was diluted juxtaposed against the unravelling of Julia and Peter’s relationship, and Rose’s lack of marital options, without which I suspect this novel wouldn’t have worked.
