The Lost Soldier -Diney Costeloe

I received this book from Net Gallery in return for an honest review.

This book is different from the Chic lit that I so often read but I love history books, especially about the war.

I would highly recommend this book. I absolutely loved it. The story flowed between past and present as we found out about the past through a series of letters read by the present day character. I loved how the main character had no idea about the symbolism of the tree which became the focus of the book to find the missing soldier and even knowing nothing about it, she had the enthusiasm to want to find out. The attitude of many others showed a lot of many people now, who no longer have the same ties to the people who fought in the wars as they are so many generations before us. People fail to remember sometimes, without them, life as we know it now would not be. We should be thankful for the people who sacrificed so much for the people of now and not be bought out by the money of greedy developers.

The story of the Lost soldier shows how things were not and are still not black and white and the grey area can be hard to decipher. I had haven’t ever read a book based from a females perspective as a new nurse in the war.

This is my first book by this author but it won’t be the last!

This book is a definite read.
