The Dust That Falls from Dreams

characters The Dust That Falls from Dreams review The Dust That Falls from Dreams 103 free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB õ Louis de Bernières Lowed by the apocalypse that will overwhelm their world as they come to adulthoodFor Rosie the path ahead is full of challenges torn between her love for two young men her sense of duty and her will to live her life to the full she has to navigate her way through extraordinary times Can she and her sisters build new live. I feel like I ve wasted the last three weeks of my life reading this utterly boring pointless overly long book It was particularly disappointing since I loved Captain Corelli s mandolin so much This book had so much potential small things would happen throughout the book and I would finally feel a twinge of excitement thinking the story was finally starting to get going but then it fall flat again A book of great potential one that was never realised unfortunatelyI will not be recommending it

characters The Dust That Falls from Dreams

characters The Dust That Falls from Dreams review The Dust That Falls from Dreams 103 free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB õ Louis de Bernières S out of the opportunities and devastations that follow the Great WarLouis de Bernières’ magnificent and moving novel follows the lives of an unforgettable cast of characters as the Edwardian age disintegrates into the Great War and they strike out to seek what happiness can be salvaged from the ruins of the old world. This won t be my favourite of de Bernieres stories but it was still a good read with some moving and emotional scenes One thing de Bernieres does really well is tell people s stories especially during war time and this was no exception We follow the lives of the McCosh family and those close to them during WWI and the aftermath I struggled a little to become totally immersed in these people s lives but there were a few that I warmed to Hamilton McCosh the father with his Scottish lilt and passion for golf and the ever patient Daniel I loved the three McCosh sistersChristabel Ottilie but especially Sophie with her own vocabulary and carefree spirit I found Rosie McCosh exasperating and just wanted to shake her to her senses I think someone did in the endI read in the author s note that he based this loosely on his own family and a long lost grandfather Any fan of this author will enjoy this latest offering once written in classic de Bernieres style Nothing to be disappointed with here
