[PDF / Epub] ☀ Fields of Yesterday By Mary Jane Staples – Peakpopa.info

Fields of Yesterday Well, what was Robert Tyler Stevens thinking when he wrote this It seems to me that he wanted to write about Edith Cavell the Nurse, than about his usual H h theme But, unfortunately he gave us two heroines, with only one hero and he let the second heroine dwarf the main girl, Louise Victoria Nurse Cavell was just so much a hero, that Louise was much too easily forgotten Frankly, I preferred Louise to our heroic Nurse Cavell Major Ned Scott is or hero, a nice, rugged man who is in his own words a slightly ungentlemanly solider But even he, seems not so heroic in comparisons to the magnificent Miss Cavell He, like everyone else becomes deeply devoted to Nurse Cavell, and fails to see poor Louise The beginning and ending of this book was fabulous but boy, did that middle drag In the beginning we have Scott and Louise running for their lives, and then the end up with Nurse Cavell, and we are in dead water when it comes to our H h Now the story is all about Madame Cavell, and all of her endeavors until the last fourth of the book when things heat up too much for Scott and Louise, and then we are back o the excitement of fleeing In all honesty, if the parts of Cavell had been cut down, and about the plight of our H h added, this book would have been wonderful But, it is what it is For all that, it was good and I liked the ending, even if not everything wasn t how I had hoped Would I reread this book No I would reread other books by Robert Tyler Stevens Mary Jane Staples, but this isn t one of them PG 13 We have very mild swearing, a fair bit of violence and blood, as well as the questionable privilege of getting the hear the heroine s thoughts on one occasion, which were on the vulgar side. Brussels, It Is A Frosty April Evening In Occupied Belgium When A Beautiful Young Woman Finds Herself On The Run From The Enemy Also Being Pursued Is Ned Scott, A British Army Major Who Has Been Badly Injured The Pair Find Themselves At A Hospital Run By The Famous Edith Cavell, Who Agrees To Treat The Major While Offering Them Both Refuge And A False Identity She Names The Young Girl AnnaHowever It Seems No One Is Safe, And As Details Of Anna S True Identity Emerge, The Enemy S Net Tightens Meanwhile, The Major Is Torn Between His Desire To Stand By Brave Edith And The Knowledge That He Must EscapeClosely Watched Wherever They Go, Is There Anyone These Three People Can Trust And Will Love Have The Power To Overcome The Horrors Of War Fictional story of two people escaping the Germans in occupied Belgium during WW1, and finding themselves at Edith Cavell s refuge hospital I loved the story although it did seem to have a rushed ending. Enjoyed it very much Wasn t aware until near the end that it was based around fact. One of the greatest books I have ever read A story of war, love, courage, determination, tenacity and faith As I read the book, the scenes came to life and the unfolding plots were but exhilaring I just could not put the book down once I started to read it I picked the book in a library from a chair I am so grateful for the reader who left the book there.A book for every teenager, adolescent, soldier, scholar and anyone determined to succeed I thoroughly enjoyed this stand alone novel by Mary Jane staples I loved the story of Anna and her war experiences as a nurse serving under Edith Cavell The tension of the novel was kept throughout despite the knowledge of Edith Cavell s capture and eventual execution by the Germans during WW1. I loved this book I already knew a little about Edith Cavell and it was lovely to see her story told in this novel.This book continues my fascination with books about strong women in the wars and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read about a true heroine. I love Mary Jane Staples books especially the Adams Family saga, but I haven t read one of her books in a while, wasn t disappointedenjoyable read transporting you back to 1914 with a good amount of suspense and romance a sensitively written novel centering around the secret war work and consequences of nurse Edith Cavell A story of how strong people were in the war, a very emotional journey of one young girl determined to help her country
