    Worth a read Some very good writing here and plenty of adventure to keep you hooked I liked main character who I always suspected was living in denial of her true sexuality Spread over several generations of a very eccentric family with lots of historical background First World War trenches seen through the eyes of a woman a must read Very humorous too Lots of printing errors here with some chapters repeated meaning you have to fast forward to get back to where you had read to.
