Bit meh about this. Not a fan of the battle scenes.
I really struggled with this book, and kept leaving it half read to go and read something else. Maybe the first half of the book was too slow, but I just didn't want to finish it.
Wonderful book with a duel narrative one taking place during the Crimean War and the other in Manchester in 1857. You learn about the horrors of the disaster that was the Crimea and the war correspondences of the time. Full of strong, unforgettable characters and driven by a compulsive storyline.
