    Good read

    This is a really hard book for me to review. It started out in 1939 and I really liked it. Then it switched to 1914 and I felt the story line went flat. The story is written in a dual timeline format between the World War I (or the Great War as it is referred to) and World War II. The story begins in 1939 when Vivienne is unhappily married to Edmund and she has to take in a Jewish girl, Pearl, from London for her safety. Then, the story switches back to 1914 and the story line focuses on sisters Vivienne and Olive who are 18 and 19 at that time. As the wars intensifies, the sisters decide to join up to do their part and they are selected to be ambulance drivers. I liked the parts of the book that focused on WWII but I had a hard time getting through the parts that focused on WWI. I am not sure if I did not like the WWI parts because most of the characters were unlikeable or what but it fell flat in those parts for me. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Interesting read linking World War I and II

    Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for an ARC of When I Was Yours by Lizzie Page. This is the first book I have read that linked characters who lived during World War I and World War II. I found this very interesting and as I was reading was surprised I had never read another book, or at least I don’t remember ever reading one linking the two wars together. I enjoyed he book, the writing, and the characters. I was disappointed in the lack of development of war details during this time. Vivi was the main character yet I enjoyed reading about her sister Olive much more. I would have liked to seen more development between Viivi and Sam. All this being said I look forward to reading more books by Lizzie Page. 3.5 stars

    Loved it

    It took me some time to enter in the story and appreciate the characters but once I did I couldn't wait to see what would happen. I was specially glad to learn about a painter who existed and did a great job at describing the 14-18 war and living her live to the fullest in a time when her way of life was frown upon: Olive Muddie-Cooke.
