    1. A remarkable World War 1 saga about hope, courage and the ties that bind, In Love and War is the latest first-class historical tale from best-selling author Lily Baxter.Elsie Mead has got great plans for the future – plans that do not involve spending the rest of her life in service at someone else’s beck and call. As a former lady’s maid, Elsie plans to use all the skills she had attained during her employ to open up her own hairdressing salon, but due to her mother’s illness she’s ha [...]

    2. I have to say with each book I find I enjoy Lily Baxter's writing more and more. Soon her books have become one of my most looked forward to reads and I constantly look to see when her next one comes out. So naturally with In Love and War her latest story I had hoped it would be the best yet. I was not disappointed. This story is different from her usual books. All her previous novels were set in World War Two, all of them in England (one in the occupied Channel Islands). This time the story beg [...]

    3. Gripping from start to finish. Mix of romance and action. Many different parts to it - kept it interesting

    4. I quite enjoyed this - not the typical war book as it actually featured a female character willing to do her bit for the war effort - rather than a character who stayed at home cleaning and bemoaning rationing.

    5. I loved this book and couldn't put it down. I liked the main characters of Elsie and Marianne and their experiences in WW1 give a great overview of various ways women helped fight the war. I actually think it would make a nice multigenerational series-hint hint to the author:)

    6. Slow, and not really my favourite book. I read it to get out of taking to the In-laws on holiday! I love war romances, and that's the only reason why I finished the book.
