In Love And War
Lizzie’s Dream by Beverley J Tucker is a historical romance set during World War I. It is a work of fiction but has facts woven through out. The horrors of that war can never truly be known by us. We owe so many, so much. It is a debt we cannot repay.
Set from 1915 to 1921 the novel is written from two points of view – the soldier at the Front and a young lady on the home front. Both parties suffer – one from unbelievable horrors, the other from the stress of not knowing how loved ones are plus the ordinary everyday worries of life.
A bygone era comes to life under the masterful pen of Beverley Tucker. The reader gets a taste of both a close knit community and family.
I really enjoyed Lizzie’s Dream and am looking forward to the follow up, William’s War.
One thing I noticed as a historian… the facts surrounding Christmas 1915 were actually from Christmas 1914 but this did not in any way detract from my enjoyment of the story.
I received this book for free from Net Galley. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
