Review: Fall of Poppies

Fall of Poppies

Publisher: William Morrow
Pages: 368
Format: ARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month . . .

November 11, 1918. After four long, dark years of fighting, the Great War ends at last, and the world is forever changed. For soldiers, loved ones, and survivors, the years ahead stretch with new promise, even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lost.

As families come back together, lovers reunite, and strangers take solace in each other, everyone has a story to tell.

In this moving, unforgettable collection, nine top historical fiction authors share stories of love, strength, and renewal as hope takes root in a fall of poppies.

Kritters Thoughts:  A fantastic short story collection from authors that I mostly read before and all centered around the end of World War I.  From war widows to families reuniting the collection included each group that was involved with World War I and how they coped with the ending.  

When reviewing short story collections by multiple authors, I don't tend to review each story but instead talk about the collection as a whole.  In this collection one story didn't stand out in a good way or bad way, they actually all worked as a cohesive group.  I like when the collection has a focus so each author's work feels like it was meant to go in the collection.

If you are a historical fiction fan that has read just one of the authors included then this is the perfect chance to try out any one of the others that write in this genre.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from TLC Book Tours.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
