Review: Somewhere in France

Somewhere in France Somewhere in France by Jennifer Robson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am really liking historical novels these days. I used to avoid them because I thought they would be depressing. Although some parts can be hard to read because of the "not so pretty" components of the war, there are always elements of hope, courage and self-sacrifice that overshadow the bad. Somewhere in France is a well written novel about the first World War. The story follows the daughter of an English Earl who steps out of her comfort zone to join the war efforts; and of a Scottish surgeon with whom she falls in love. They are both shipped somewhere in France and work side by side in a war hospital. Lili is bright, quick on her feet and good hearted. Robby is of common birth, but has a noble heart and performs his duties with utmost dedication. Although their relationship has all the ups and downs that are to be expected of a war romance novel; the author succeeded to keep the flow of the story interesting and time accurate.

Somewhere in France is a great read.
