The Solder's Wife by Margaret Leroy

A wife who's husband has gone off to war and is left in their home on Guernsey Island to take care of their two daughters and his mother-in-law while the Germans occupy the Island. So many beautiful descriptions that make you feel the conflicting emotions and what it would have been like to have lived in that time.
The Soldier's Wife

Everyone liked it. There were a couple incongruences in the story line that some found frustrating. The mother was weak but, who is to say what we would do in those. An enjoyable read that did a beautiful job of capturing the flowers, chocolate and other sensations. Made for a good discussion
