Noonday by Pat Barker

amy-noondayI read the first two books in this trilogy quite some time ago, and while it certainly was good knowing the past of the characters, I don’t think it is necessary to enjoy the book. For me, Pat Barker really brings alive the times and places she writes about and this time it is London, during the Blitz in WWII. Harsh, bleak and violent circumstances bring about changes in relationships for these characters who also lived through WWI. It is an engrossing story, not lovely, but powerful.
