Another absolutely wonderful review for our A PRIDE OF POPPIES anthology, which is formally published on 1 May.
Reviewer Kizzia, writing on her blog Odd and Ends, says as follows:
“I cannot, hand on heart, say that each story accurately represents every aspect of the war that it includes, but I wouldn’t expect to be able to. In fiction the story is always the most important part and anyone who picks up a work of fiction expecting cold hard fact is always set for disappointment. What I can say is that I was swept up by the emotions of each story, concerned more for the characters than anything else, and I certainly didn’t find myself jolted out of any story thanks to any jarring incorrect portrays of life (whether in the trenches or on the home front) in WWI. Which is as it should be.”
From any reviewer this would be high praise, but coming from someone who so clearly knows her subject matter it’s doubly welcome. Thank you for your kind words, Kizzia!
