I'm in the process of looking for a new book community (need I say more?) so hopefully booklikes is it. For now I'm just figuring out the site.
Wonderful story. The author obviously took her time writing this novel. Loved all the details of the time period. Story is set in the late 30's to early 40's. Everytime I read the present just slipped away from me. I found the characters and their stories believable and all fit nicely into the main story. This would have been a five star for me but I agree with other reviews I read that Lark's thought process as well as her vocabulary were that of someone older. I was able to put that aside after awhile and enjoy the story but for the first half I was slightly annoyed. I almost didn't pick up this book thinking it was going to be one of those sappy unrealistic feel good stories. I think another review stated something along the same line which is why I gave it a try. Really glad I did.
