Love this Author Another fantastic book A heartwarming tale, a great story of how friendship and love will overcome the worst possible scenarios Such fantastic characters, I m going to miss them, didn t want the book to end. I love Daisy Styles books and I always feel like I m coming home when I pick up her new book I m a relative newcomer to them and it says a lot about her style and attraction that she is the only author of this genre that I read I really am a huge fan and signed up to this tour even though I m away when the post actually goes out so any shares are very much appreciated It s hard to believe that it s not particularly that long ago that young unmarried mothers were so ashamed of getting pregnant I love Daisy Styles books and I always feel like I m coming home when I pick up her new book I m a relative newcomer to them and it says a lot about her style and attraction that she is the only author of this genre that I read I really am a huge fan and signed up to this tour even though I m away when the post actually goes out so any shares are very much appreciated It s hard to believe that it s not particularly that long ago that young unmarried mothers were so ashamed of getting pregnant that they were shipped off in disgrace by their families or even checking themselves in unknown to their loved owns to give birth and have their babies adopted It was only the very brave few who went intending to keep their baby as being a single mother then wasn t on the same level of acceptance as it is today But if they went somewhere like that then I would like to think that they would have had support from people like Ada or nuns like Sister Anna They wanted the very best for the young women who had some very stressful and life changing decisions to make But here we also see the unscrupulous side of adoption where money seems to talk and Matron alongside the horrible Percy, head of the governing body, are definitely listening to the sound of that cash rattling rather than the young women themselves.There were some very tender moments between mums and babies plus some rather distressing scenes for some but even so, I adored this book from the very first page It swept me into another time and place where I gradually came to feel like I really belonged in that era, it felt that authentic to me It captured perfectly the British Way of life captivating me throughout even though I m glad that I do live in a world where women are now empowered to make their own choices well, here in the UK certainly even if other countries in our civilised society seem to have regressed recently about motherhood.Daisy Styles has taken women from different ways of life and in differing personal relationships as her main perspectives here and each of them brought a distinctive point of view with them As an author, it s her thing and she does it perfectly with each new book she brings out.Heartbreaking, insightful and with a warmth of human nature that bats the scheming baddies out of the way, The Wartime Midwives is perfect for lovers of Call The Midwife Well worth checking out if you re a fan I like Daisy s writing style, it s emotive, well researched and just thoroughly lovely.Thanks for the opportunity to read and review.
