It seems to me that it is caching in on the popularity of Downton Abbey. However, possibly she preceded it. This is the bleaker version of same.

With this novel about the de Witt family, Kate Williams has added another dimension to the growing genre of fiction relating to the upheavals in society caused by World War I .Celia, the youngest member of the family, is naive to the point of exasperation for the 21st century reader but a credible character for all that in a world turned upside down by the horrors of war.The events are real enough and their impacts far reaching.Well researched and convincing,this is the first in a trilogy. I'm looking forward to the ensuing volumes.
