The year is 1914, and the onset of the Great War brings with it not only horror but opportunity – particularly for women.
Louise, Ellen, and Angel Bannister have enjoyed the comforts of a wealthy upbringing, but yearn for something more exciting than their anticipated lots in life. As the times begin to change and the war rumbles through London, the Bannister girls face challenges that will test their resolve and strip them of their innocence.
The Bannister Girls is a poignant tale of desire, loss, and fervent love in a war-torn country set within a vital age of progress, change, and upheaval.

My Review Of
The Bannister Girls by Jean Saunders
This book had a bit of Downton Abbey feel to it, three privileged sisters, the start of World War I, one sister a bit of a rebel for human rights, one sister a hopeless romantic and one who tries to do everything just the way that it is expected of her. I love this time period and the setting seemed very nice. The story was one of romance and heartbreak and while I found this to be very well written it dragged a bit for me in most places. Angela, the romantic was my favorite of the sisters, her story line was a bit scandalous for the times which I found exciting and Jacques her love interest seemed quite swoon worthy. As for the other characters in the book, I had a hard time connecting with them. I still enjoyed the overall story line and find this era and setting fascinating.This book had a bit of Downton Abbey feel to it, three privileged sisters, the start of World War I, one sister a bit of a rebel for human rights, one sister a hopeless romantic and one who tries to do everything just the way that it… Click To Tweet
