This book is the last of a trilogy which I wasn't aware of, so I was at a bit of a disadvantage right away. However it was still eminently readable and I was drawn in immediately. Descriptions of what it was like to live through the war, the bombs, the damage, the fear. You could almost hear the sound of insects droning during the long hot summer. Another winner from Pat Barker! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC.
