  • For better for worse

    For most of the book I felt like I was reading a fairy tale - for everything that happened, it was ok in the end, lifetime during their was was all ok - but what came coming back time after time was that the main character was obsessed with her cousin, was actually going to marry her COUSIN, had at some point had made out with her COUSIN that is sick and why on earth would you for a split second think that was something appropriate to write YEK

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • My Musings

    Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of For Better For Worse by June Francis for the purpose of reading and reviewing prior to publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them. For Better For Worse is an intriguing historical fiction novel with complex characters and an involved plot. The pacing kept me engaged from the beginning until the end. Ms. Francis must do extensive research because the detail and authentic feel to the setting is amazing. Grace’s character has a great many facets. She is under twenty in the beginning and a mature woman by the end. During this saga, she experiences life in pre-WWII and in the midst of WWII, all the way to the aftermath. There are complex family relationships, starting with her cousin, Dougie. Then later ones with his oblivious mother, one contentious sister and another one who attempts to bridge the rift between them. I liked Grace’s character and enjoyed following her character growth and great love for her children. This was not the easiest review to write without including spoilers. The book description does not give the reader a true picture of this novel’s depth. The story is complicated at times, but it intrigued me, and I enjoyed it a great deal. If you enjoy novels depicting life before, during, and after WWII, then you will love the historical details in For Better For Worse by Ms. Francis, since it includes an excellent example of life during this turbulent period of history. Happy reading!

  • For Better, For Worse

    The different characters were so much fun to imagine. I did not want the story to end. I was so glad Ben got home. I wish the story had contiued to say end of war, Simon was home, abd we would find out about Ben's brother. But overall a very good read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
