Speaking of Love sounds like a book I would like to read. thanks for giving the highlights.

I'm glad to see your review of this. I just got a copy. I haven't read much fiction set in the WWI trenches, and this does sound like that part of the book is the best part.

Hello Diane and thanks for your comments. Hope you enjoy Speaking of Love when you get hold of it.

Teresa - yes trenches are the best bit. have you read Birdsong? It makes an interesting companion read to this. Neither book is perfect but their successes and failures are quite different.

Hmmm this sounds like an interesting one, am off to see if can order it in at the Library.

I bought The Widow and her Hero on your recommendation the other day and am hoping to read that one soon.

I'm just now reading All Quiet on the Western Front. I'd be interested to see the way this compared. Thanks for the interesting review!

Simon - hope you enjoy. I also hope you enjoy the Keneally apart for Schindler he is not read as widly as he should be I think. He has an incredible back catalogue to explore if you develop a taste for his work.
Jenny - I've not read All Q. but it is on the to do list. I enjoyed Birdsong and have mixed feeelings about Pat Brker's WWI fiction. WWI fiction is an interesting area.
