My rating: 4 of 5 stars
THis is the second book of the Passing Bells series.
This is the story of Martin Rilke, a Chicago journalist and his British cousins, the Greevilles, who live in Abingdon Pryory.
After the end of World War I, some characters must face their beloved lost during the Great War as well as to recover from acute shell shock.
A momentary feeling of peace and happiness occurs but the economical and political German situation doesn’t bring the expected optimism: the inflation is quite high, there is lack of food and some political conspirators start to point out the rising of the Nazis.
I do recommend Sarah Johnson’s review at Reading the Past.
