Review: A DUTY TO THE DEAD by Charless Todd

Historical Tapestry recently read and reviewed A Duty to the Dead by Charles Todd for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

I actually think as far as her independence goes, she is probably more realistic than Maisie Dobb’s. Her parents are constantly checking up on Bess and there is Simon, a friend of the family, who is around the rest of the time. She still does move around a fair bit, but not without some restrictions. I also think that her being a nurse in WWI and the changes that brought for women opened up some of the freedom for her. As to my first impression, I wasn’t sure what to make of Bess.

Read the full review.
