The Storms of War by Kate Williams



I recently finished reading The Storms of War by Kate Williams, a very interesting historical novel about the de Witt family during WWI.  The de Witt family are German which is not a popular thing to be during this time.   Before the war they were tolerated by their neighbours but as soon as war is declared the eldest daughter's fiance calls off the wedding, the father is detained as a possible spy, the eldest son refuses to come home, the younger son joins the army and the youngest of all, Celia, is left trying to survive the tumult of the times.  

An excellent summer read.  I haven't given away more than a few little secrets.  Much more to the book than that.  Enjoy.
