After the War is Over

After the War is Over is written by Jennifer Robson. Her first book, Somewhere in France, was a favourite of mine last year so I jumped on the chance to pick up her latest when I heard about it. And I wasn’t disappointed. Charlotte Brown from book #1 is the focul point of this great read. She was a military nurse for 4 years and is now back in Liverpool dedicating her life to the betterment of those left behind by the Great War. Edward Neville-Ashford figures largely as well, and there is still some unresolved attraction, hidden though it is in Charlotte, that must be addressed between them. In post war Britain, class issues still exist so Charlotte feels she must dedicate her life to work, not the pursuit of personal happiness. But life doesn’t always march to the beat of a single drum. To enjoy it best, this book certainly deserves to be read after Somewhere in France. Pick them both up and devour Jennifer Robson at her finest. You won’t be disappointed.
