UNFOLDS NOT ALWAYS A BED OFNot always a bed of readers witness how life changes for Albert and his family as his fortunes row and social living alters around him The final third of the novel is set during the First World War and I think this is the part that I found most powerful Kingston expertly captures the fear and worry of those at home coupled with the ignorance and frustration towards what was really happening in France I think what would have made this novel stronger was if the author had included time references at the start of chapters so that readers have a better awareness of the passing yearsI enjoyed reading this book and whilst this is not marked as a series the closing chapter shows that there is another episode to follow This is something I hope to read in the future to see what lies in store for Albert his family and the prospect of another World War looming Admittedly I did lose interest in the plot at times and this is my only criticism of the story It was very ood as a whole but I did not find it a total page turnerA lovely story about the changes you can bring upon yourself with enough hard work and ambition This is a drama that explores the importance of family even when it feels like everything around you is a challengeI received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
