This one I had to speed-read because I was away in Manchester at the weekend and as a result I lost 2-3 days of reading. So I didn't spend as much time with it as I might've done. Fortunately it's a very basic love story so in that sense, I finished it quite easy. It's based just prior to the war although each section jumps forward a few years so it can get a bit jolting. You initially read it as though it's just one continuous one-two year story, but it's actually told over a longer time period. It does make you wonder what happens in the gaps in between. The fact that the author didn't write about those bits suggests either laziness or that there probably wasn't much happening. It doesn't tend to go into too much detail, plus there's constant reminders about Maisie 'speaking out of turn when she ought not' and it can get a bit patronising to the reader. If you want a mystery romantic story, this won't challenge you one bit. But an easy enough read if you like something light.
This week I'm reading The Incredible Adam Spark by Alan Bissett
