  1. E.Wheeler

    5.0 out of 5 stars An era and its personalities captured perfectly and the dilemmas encountered along the way.
    Well developed main characters in both familiar and unfamiliar settings with whom I related. I was eager to know more about how their story unfolded and empathised with them in the difficult situation within which they found themselves. The author has perfectly captured the life and personalities of a Welsh valleys town of the era and this contrasts with the equally vividly portrayed narrative of life in post war Burma. A thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking read.
