- January 1, 1970Ashley NikoleOh goodness- I cannot even wait. I am almost through book two- loving Barclay's part in it- and CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS ONE!!!!! STOKEEEDDDDD
- January 1, 1970Kate CamposAn excellent finish to an interesting series. Well researched and written, and full of interesting historical details from 1915 England during WW1. Overall, I preferred her Ladies of the Manor series over the Shadows Over England, but this series comes highly recommended nonetheless. She sure knows how to write a high stakes ending! *I received a copy for review from the publisher via Booklist.more
