Review of "The victory garden" by Rhys Bowen

Set during World War I this novel is about Emily Bryce, an (almost) 21 year old daughter of a judge who falls in love with an Australian airman. Pregnant and pretending to be a warwidow she joins the Land Army of women doing agricultural work when the men are away fighting. While billeted near an estate she finds an old diary full with recipes for herbal remedies.

Unfortunately the Amazon blurb almost told the whole plot! That deducted one star.

The book is quite predictable and I kept wondering if the concept of the Land Army and a Victory Garden was not more a WW2 concept.

Ok read. 3 stars out of 5.
