To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This story of a young woman who takes a position as secretary in the home of a professional musical family in post-WWII England. Her new employment puts her directly into a very dysfunctional family and, at times, told in flashbacks of the war period in France. Members of this family were active in the resistance during German occupation.
The writing is full and juvenile. I felt like it was more for a middle school reader but for much of the subject matter dealt with here. The characters all think and speak like teenagers and the serious nature of the resistance movement is written without research in my opinion. It is too casual.
