I love the many individual characters, both men and women, and I applaud how well both the good parts and questionable elements of the character's personalities are drawn. The result is a story that encourages you to consider your stance on war and those who did or indeed didn't physically fight.
Yet, what I find makes this book all the stronger is the author's insistence on presenting both the endearing and not so quite endearing qualities of the suffragettes. I had no knowledge of the white feather girls until reading this and had to look it up to find out if it was true (unfortunately, it was).
Sometimes, I feel we have a slightly more romanticized ideal of the suffragettes but though I do not doubt or diminish their fight (with some obvious results many years later because of it) some of their tactics were downright ugly - and the white feather movement was a prime example of that. I love however that Posy charts both the good and the bad elements - allowing the reader to make up their own mind.
Overall, this is a compelling read, and so beautifully done.
I really enjoyed learning about the meaning of flowers, something I am interested in in both literature & painting.
The lost of the 2 stars for me is that so much of the story is predictable. The characters are likeable but not really complex. The reader can quickly figure out what's happening next. I do not want to spoil it for those who wish to read it but so many times I thought "oh come on!".
Maybe it is just me who enjoys character development & complex personality. Even the "bad guy" with his history of domestic violence is quickly straightened into being better fairly quickly.
I read it in one afternoon on the beach. And I think it is just that: a quick, lovely read, a beautiful botanical background, some insight into the Sufragette movement during WW1, feminism, romance... just too predictable for my liking though.
