Fall of Poppies

Fall of Poppies Characters ä 2 Review Fall of Poppies On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month November 11 1918 After four long dark years of fighting the Great War ends at last and the world is forever changed For soldiers loved ones and survivors the years ahead stretch wit 45 Stars A young Belgian patriot discovers the German patient she begrudgingly cares for isn t at all what he seems Wartime lovers reunite decades later to discover they were kept apart by misunderstandings A young Red Cross volunteer finds first love with a disfigured soldier only to be cruelly separated from him A dancer struggles to survive and imagine a future in Paris after losing everyone she loved to the war A timid airman makes a hasty promise to a stranger and finds a new reason to survive the war A grieving widow vows revenge on the Germans who took so much from her A disillusioned American airman finally finds a reason to leave Paris nearly two years after the war s end A British soldier stationed in Dublin to uell the uprising falls in love with an Irish girl And an English midwife desperately fights for the life of a newborn while her son fights for his life on a French battlefieldThis is an excellent collection of short stories by nine talented historical fiction authors While the stories are not interconnected they do all share a common theme the Armistice and these stories really capture the conflicting emotions that the end of the war brings Of course there is joy and celebration but also a sense of uncertainty Is it really over What comes next What do we do now What was it all for How do we go on as before when none of us will ever be the sameThe stories are wonderfully varied giving the reader a glimpse into different aspects of the war and life on the home front in Britain Belgium and France Most of the characters in these stories are fictional but I was introduced to two amazing women I d not heard of before Edith Cavell a British nurse who helped hundreds of Allied soldiers escape German occupied Brussels and was executed for it and Anna Coleman Ladd an artist who used her talents to create lifelike masks for soldiers disfigured in the war And I was reminded that Ireland was in rebellion during the war sending boys to fight Germany while those that stayed home fought against British rule That s something we don t tend to hear much about when discussing the Great War and that story The Photograph by Kate Kerrigan added another layer of depth and emotion to the collectionAll nine stories are good There s not a weak offering among them though some did resonate with me than others All for the Love of You by Jennifer Robson Something Worth Landing For by Jessica Brockmole and Hush by Hazel Gaynor stand out as my favorites The first two mainly because I am a hopeless romantic and the latter because it is such a haunting beautiful bittersweet ending to the war and the collection Birth death and the circle of life the stillness of peace sweeping across the land was palpable coming just in time for some and too late for others Not even the end of the war means the war is over It will never be over for some of usAll but three of these authors were new to me and I will definitely be adding their full length novels to my list These stories of love and war are beautifully written encompassing the entire range of emotions and shades of humanity and will stay with you long after you ve finished reading them

Review Fall of Poppies

Fall of Poppies Characters ä 2 Review Fall of Poppies H new promise even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lostAs families come back together lovers reunite and strangers take solace in each other everyone has a story to tellIn this moving unforgettable collection nine top hist Overall rating 366 so rounded up to 4 starsMy rating is obtained by giving each of the short stories their own rating and dividing by 9 number of works included in the collection My overall impression This was an easy book to read since there are natural stopping points throughout While I m not a huge fan of short stories I do like them when we ll written There were a couple in this collection I truly wish the author would have held onto and developed and entire novel around the characters Like most collections there was a story or two that didn t hit the mark for me I found it a bit surprising that one of those was an author I have read and enjoyed in the past Individual ratings and reviews 4 The Daughter of Belgium by Marci Jefferson This was the first time reading anything by Marci Jefferson I will surely look for future full length stories from her This was a good short but I think the limited space hurt the flow of the story a bit It was a regular build up and then EVERYTHING happened in the last 10 pages 5 The Record Set Right by Lauren Willig I really enjoyed this story The setting and atmosphere felt spot on As I think will happen with many of these shorts I was left wishing these characters could have had a full length book appearance They were nuanced enough though that I was not left wondering or guessing Also praise to the author for not falling back on the most annoying nails biting into her palms description Yeah I have commented in several reviews how she over uses this phrase I was relieved to read one of her stories without it She s such a great writer but for this one idiosyncrasy 35 All for the Love of You by Jennifer Robson I really enjoyed this story However there was a huge glaring error in the timeline I hope it was only editing and not the author s stupid mistake It took me out of the story so much and hurt the flow that I cannot help but rate it lower than I had anticipated up to that point 25 After You ve Gone by Evangeline Holland I was planning to give this story a higher rating while reading the first few pages The writing was pretty good and I enjoyed the concept people of color during WWI in Paris was very interesting and not something I d read before I even began to love the characters But what happened is most likely not entirely the author s fault There was just not enough pages in a short story format to adeuately tell the unfolding story It was obvious that entire chunks of needed background and development probably were left out for the sake of space There were odd things happening and it was hard to follow Superfluous characters that mattered nothing to the story The worst thing was a cat supposedly left in a bag all day long Huh It had to happen that way because these people only met one day and the guy had to end up with the cat It was so unbelievable it made me roll my eyes 5 Something Worth Landing For by Jessica Brockmole Loved this one It is my winner for best work in this collection I wish these characters could have made an appearance in a full length novel I fell in love with both the male and female lead characters I even wanted to know about the other pilots in the suadron I would really have enjoyed a detailed telling of their story But as only a great author could pull off I wasn t left feeling short changed in the 30 pages I received Excellent writing 2 Hour of the Bells by Heather Webb I didn t much care for this story It was not my cup of tea It had an overwhelming feeling of doom I realize this is book of stories centered around The Great War but the other authors have found a way to tell tales and create characters that are not depressing The writing itself was fine therefore I ll raise my rating to two stars from the one my heart wants to award 45 An American Airman in Paris by Beatriz Williams This was a great story I loved it up until the ending I m simply not a fan of ambiguous endings I can see how the language and sexual situations could be off putting to a segment of the population as I ve seen noted in other reviews However I think the voice and demeanor given to the American Flyboys was spot on These were desperate and trying times I will also note this is the only piece that is told entirely from a male point of view I found that fact very refreshing and it solidified my already held belief that Beatriz Williams is a great author who can tackle just about any character with accuracy 25 The Photograph by Kate Kerrigan I kinda liked this story but I didn t love it It felt very out of place The liberation of Ireland did not fit the Great War theme The only true connection is the time British soldiers were stationed in Ireland to uell uprisings If that was the only fault I might still like this one but alas there was very little substance to the story I don t want to give spoilers so I ll suffice to say I dare anyone to read this and not feel the same 4 The Hush by Hazel Gaynor I think this could have been a beautiful full length novel However I m not sure the characters would have been strong enough to carry it I think of all the selections this one was the most literary The author attempted some symbolism and deep thinking moments I think for the most part it was effective I will be the first to admit I m not a great fan of flowery literary work I guess a short bit was tolerable if you consider my honest rating
