Margaret Tannerabout this book: Allison's War starts at the beginning of the Great War, 1914 - 1918.
As this year is the 100th anniversary of the start of this terrible conflict, this story has relevance to all of us. It is a timely reminder of the great sacrifice that these soldiers made. They all sacrificed their youth and their health, and many of them paid the supreme sacrifice, and bought our freedom with their blood.
Allison's War tells of betrayal, love and loss during war.
In 1916, on the French battlefields, a dying soldier's confession has the power to ruin the life of the woman he loves.It sets off a chain reaction that will affect the next generation of the family.
Meanwhile, on the home front, Allison Waverley has to battle shame, loss and betrayal. Can she overcome the dark secrets in her past and find happiness, or will it always elude her?
This story is well researched as I have always been interested in World War 1, and in fact, I have visited the battlefields in France and Belgium.
