    One thought on “Till the Sun Shines Through”

    1. I can´t convey into words how much i liked this book.Beautiful love story.Story begins before and than continues during WWII. It is heart wrenching and almost painful to read at times, yet I felt I developed such a personal connection to the main characters that I wouldn't have dared to put it down until I knew that everything turned out happily ever after.I will read more books written by this author in the future .

    2. From the very start I was hooked on this book, I did wonder about three quarters of the way through, how Birdie could cope with so much tragedy and heart ache. I struggled to put the book down and got to bed on a night. I felt the story could continue at the end, how Bridie and Joe lived at the farm with her parents. Good read, would recommend.

    3. This book was somewhat difficult to read for me and the character was overwhelmingly hard-headed. I didn't appreciate the extreme sufferings added to her life one after the other. You look forward for a breather as you read but only to be disappointed because more issues about the war made their lives more complicated. I got impatient that I skipped pages to get to the end.

    4. This book was middle of the road for me. The main character Bridie was quite annoying. Sure terrible things happened to her but like usual, the heroine was overwhelmingly stubborn and I guess this ensured there was something to push the storyline along.
