War Clouds Over Blackberry Farm by Rosie Clarke

I’m so delighted to tell you about this gorgeous book today. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Cambridgeshire – March 1939

As the clouds of war begin to gather in Europe, the Talbot family of rural Blackberry Farm will be torn apart, just as so many families all over the world will be. Life will never be the same again.

Whilst in London, the Salmons family will feel the pain of parting and loss.

Brought together by war, the two families become intertwined and, as the outlook looks bleak, they must draw on each other’s strength to fight through the hard times.

Lizzie Johnson and Tom were sweethearts until a mistake caused a terrible rift. Lizzie takes herself off to London to heal the pain in a glamorous new job but she still loves Tom. His pride has been hurt – but deep down inside Tom still cares. Can they find happiness before their chance is gone and the whole word is swept into the terrible madness of war?

My Review:

I’m always so excited when a new Rosie Clarke book comes out and this one is just gorgeous!

We meet Lizzie and Tom and things have gone very wrong for them. When Lizzie runs off to London, I just couldn’t see how things would work out for them, and I really wanted them to reunite. But war is coming, and everything is about to change for everyone.

I just flew through the pages of this enchanting book. I felt as if I had known the characters for ages, and found it so easy to get into the story. There is one despicable character, but most are lovely, and there’s heartache and happiness throughout, as people adapt to war times.

I’m delighted to say there there are some unresolved issues in this book, so I’m hopeful that this will be another wonderful series to look forward to.

A book to totally fall in love with, to completely lose yourself in, it will entertain and enrapture you. Just wonderful.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
