I read this book for book club. It was my choice (unfortunately). I found this book really confusing – the backwards and forwards movement in time got me every time. I know the sections were separated with a squiggle, but I kept missing it.
I didn’t feel any sympathy for any of the characters – except maybe Lucy. It felt like a creative writing assignment where so many boxes have to be ticked. The best part were the descriptions of the battles, like Waterloo.
And Cecil was he moving backwards and forwards in time some how?
