The Skylark’s War

This isn’t a thriller. Or a melodrama. Nor does it quite pack the punch of Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful , which it resembles a little in its story of a (way of) life broken up by World War 1. It’s a description of a young girl , and how she and the world around her change as the years pass and the war comes. It’s a gentle, absorbing book that pulls you – page by page – ever more deeply into its story until you have to know what’s going to happen next. I liked this a lot.
