The poppy factory by Liz Trenow

Cynthia The Poppy FactoryWhat a beautiful cover, with a promise of a good story blending the present and the past. The storyline was good and I enjoyed the stories of people dealing with the aftermath of war and finally getting the help they needed. Rose welcomes home her husband from the first world war, but married life is not all joyous reunion. Rose’s story was told in diary format and was a great method of telling her story to Jess, a returned medic from Afghanistan struggling with her own demons. Overall this was a good story but I was not emotionally involved as I have been with similar stories, not sure why?
