SUMMARY The Girl from Cobb Street Daisys War #1

Ithin herself to get through her darkest hourThe Daisy’s War trilogyThe Girl from Cobb Street – Book 1The Nurse’s War – Book 2Daisy’s Long Road Home – Book 3Each story in the Daisy’s War series can be read and enjoyed as a standalone story – or as part of this compelling trilogy charting the fortunes of Daisy Driscol. This was not the book I was expecting in all the best ways Allingham tells the story of a woman who goes to India to marry her beloved only to find that the war has changed the man she loved or perhaps he was never who she thought he was to begin with I felt this book had enough drama to keep interest and had a good mystery but remained civil enough that even readers who are not big fans of mysteries should enjoy this book Think of it as mystery lite with a dash of relationship troubles and a smidgen of historical drama to make a uick read that pull you into a whirlwind adventureRead responsibly and enjoy I received this book in a First Reads giveaway
