A veteran comes home after WW1 - "the Gamekeeper's wife" by Clare Flynn - review

Christopher survived WW1 unlike his elder brother and father but lost a leg. Now he has to run the family estate. Of the servants most had died too. But then he meets the widow of one of them and first befriends her and then falls madly in love. She however is ten years his senior and of a total different social class.

Impoverished aristocrats, wounded veterans, new money, old secrets.

It is an entertaining read but because it switches between Kit and Martha it is hard to identify with either of them.
The turn his mum made is also quite radical and a bit hard to believe.

4 stars out of 5
