The Final Act

By

It is spring 1944. Before the war ends, Richard makes a mistake behind enemy lines which results in devastating tragedy. Rose has to make the most difficult decision of her life and Merry and his lover are separated by duty. It is a story of love, duty and despair but life continues.

This is the final book in a quartet of novels beginning with Now Is the Hour. I loved this book. I didn’t want it to finish. By the end the characters became old friends, and I think this was because I read the books in sequence. I had already established the settings and characters in my mind, so I was able to read the story without that sometimes irritating need to establish who was who and who liked whom. Apart from that it was a story well told. Plenty of action, some tense moments and the odd cliff-hanger. A good read.
