About Ross Richdale

Many of his novels reflect his interest in the rural lifestyle as well as the cross section of personalities encountered during his years as a teacher. Ordinary people rather than the super rich, the super powerful or violent, are the main characters in his novels. He is also interested in current events and uses international incidents as a backdrop for many of his novels.

Review by: jules103 on March 02, 2012 :
The stories were compelling. The four women profiled had different experiences, so it wasn't repetitive going from one generation to the next. My favorite was Dorothy, the nurse in WWI.

I would have rated this as four stars, but there were too many places where the book could have used a proofreader or copy editor. Supporting characters' names changed with no explanation (a dialogue between Molly and Amanda suddenly has "Mary said"; the farmer's wife in Cindy's story was sometimes Edith and sometimes Edna.) Incorrect words that sound similar were also a common problem. (Bad guys were referred to as "oaths" instead of "oafs"; a small room was called a "cubical" instead of "cubicle"...)
