I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

Wake - Anna Hope
Thank you to the publishers for giving me a chance to read an advance copy of this wonderful book.
 It tells the story of three different women, all connected by WW1 across five days in November 1920.
Parts of the novel, especially the parts that tell the story of the transportation of the soldier I felt like I was actually there watching. I felt the emotion all the way through it but it wasn't until the 4th day that I was reading with tears rolling down my face.
Along with the story of the three main characters we were shown how other families and very small characters were affected by the war even if it was only over a paragraph.
If anybody is interested there is film footage of the football team mentioned in the book going off to war available on YouTube.
