    Meadowlands Free read ï 8 MeadowlandsI received an advance copy of this novel from NetGalley Meadowlands tells the story of the aristocratic Barsham family as they navigate the changing world of England during WWI The family is composed of Sir George and his wife Lady Adelaide daughters Millie and Gina and twin sons Ned and James Although all four children strive to find different ways to contribute to the war effort their parents are less than exemplaryI was utterly disappointed in this book It was wholly unoriginal and reads like a cheap knockoff desperately trying to ride the coattail

    Meadowlands Free read ï 8 MeadowlandsEnjoyable historical romance set in World War I period Some sad handkerchief moments but also happy endings The author covers many social issues in a manner true to the characters so the historical background doesn’t read like a textbook I learned from the book even though I have read many nonfiction books on WWI Great for fans of Downton Abbey Great for those who sometimes want an easy read don’t we all

    Meadowlands Free read ï 8 MeadowlandsA serviceable but superficial story of the home front in England during WWI without a lick of originality It hit on some key points the treatment of working class families left at home while the breadwinner is away killed or damaged; the powerlessness of women the affects of working in the munitions factories the breaking down of social barriers Although I think it took that last beyond belief The characters and their situations were stereotyped The working class girl got pregnant after one night of love while the upper class girl does not The sensitive brother who is a c

  • Dani

    Meadowlands Free read ï 8 MeadowlandsI really liked this book The characters were very likeable apart from Lady Adelaide who really was a snob I did expect the story to tell of Ned James and Millie's experiences on the front line but that didn't take away from the storyI am not sure if there is a seuel but would love to read about the future lives of the characters and their childrenIf you loved Elizabeth Elgin's Rowangarth series then you will love this


  • Penelope Myers

    Meadowlands Free read ï 8 MeadowlandsUnlike many World War I novels all the action is at home I appreciated that the emphasis was on how badly the working class families with men in the army were treated and how the soldiers who were badly wounded were treated Also a very chilling episode concerning the appalling way women regarded as insane were treated

    Meadowlands Free read ï 8 MeadowlandsGood It's moments of true candor and truth itself speak to the reader I would say it is an above average entry in this field Not stunning but pleasingEnding on a positive note when many of the stories of combatants treatment were not good Enjoyable We always like to see a happy ending and this promises a good future for the characters
