On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month November 11 1918 After four long dark years of fighting the Great War ends at last and the world is forever changed For soldiers loved ones and survivors the years ahead stretch wit. Find this and other reviews at are a handful of authors I truly love reading and when I get an email from one asking me to review their work Well it s not a uestion of if I ll review it so much as when I can fit it into my schedule It doesn t happen often but this is how I came to possess an ARC edition of Fall of Poppies I d been eyeing the anthology since it was announced and thought it d make a great companion to Grand Central It is an entirely different group of authors but it in terms of subject matter I felt the two complimented one another and having loved the first I couldn t help being drawn to the second I suppose I should admit that I was familiar with the works of Jessica Brockmole Marci Jefferson and Heather Webb prior to Fall of Poppies I ve recommended Letters from Skye Enchantress of Paris Girl on the Golden Coin Rodin s Lover and Becoming Josephine several times each and I was eager to see how each writer would navigate storytelling on a smaller scale I admire each greatly and couldn t have been happier about getting to experience their latest publications before the official release dateHazel Gaynor Evangeline Holland Kate Kerrigan Jennifer Robson Beatriz Williams and Lauren Willig were names I knew well I d eyed many of their titles with interest but Fall of Poppies marks my first experience with each It was a long time coming but Fall of Poppies was an introduction I wont soon forget and I ll likely be on the lookout for each of these ladies in the coming year The Daughter of Belgium by Marci Jefferson Marci Jefferson s The Daughter of Belguim like many of the stories touches on a lot of interesting subject matter Taking inspiration from the story of Edith Cavell Jefferson tackled the silent struggles of those who dedicated to tending the wounded Strength tempered by pain and loss is not something I see everyday but Jefferson s presentation of Amelie proved both convincing and powerful I liked the combination and felt the complexity of her personality and past experience intensely relatableThe Record Set Right by Lauren Willig Lauren Willig s The Record Set Right was bittersweet in tone but the drama it depicted brought a smile to my fact A tale of misunderstanding and missed opportunities Millie s retrospective narrative stuck a chord with me Romance isn t only for the young and I liked how this short defied trends to illustrate that idea The pivotal moment was slightly predictable but characters themselves were uniuely drawn and held genuine appeal in my eyes All For the Love of You by Jennifer Robson Jennifer Robson s All For the Love of You highlights one of the intriguing chapters of WWI in that it deals with mask making and the effort help those who d been disfigured in the conflict The struggles Daisy witnesses are illuminating but the craftsmanship and professionalism she witnesses in the studio is what captured my attention Anna Coleman Ladd is not a character I d encountered in my studies but I enjoyed learning about her through Robson s effort and appreciate how the piece illustrated both her and her work After You ve Gone by Evangeline Holland The plot details of Evangeline Holland s After You ve Gone were a little far fetched for my personal tastes but I loved the subject matter she explored and the way the author approached it It is the first of the anthology submission to include the male POV and the story touched on larger concepts such as racism and artistic pursuits in times of war Holland s work is not heavy handed but flows naturally toward a subtle touching conclusion Something Worth Landing For by Jessica Brockmole In terms of plot Jessica Brockmole s Something Worth Landing For was my favorite submission to Fall of Poppies I love the balance she found in her portrayal of Victorie and Wes the vulnerability she brought to each character and the material she covered but there is an authentic uality to the drama these characters experience that struck so close to home it made my heart ache Simple but beautifully drawn the story took my breath away and brought a tear to my eye Hour of the Bells by Heather Webb Conceptually Heather Webb s Hour of the Bells stopped me dead in my tracks Born a German citizen Beatrix married a Frenchman and watched as their son took up arms against her homeland For her the war is intensely personal and threatens crush her heart and soul Hour of the Bells is a love story but not the kind I d anticipated when I accepted Fall of Poppies for review Emotionally it is raw powerful and poignant The kind of story that haunts you long after you ve said goodbye An American Airman in Paris by Beatriz Williams I cheered when I realized Beatriz Williams An American Airman in Paris was written entirely from the male POV I was uite vocal about my frustration with the marginalization of the male narrator at the 2015 Historical Novel Society Conference and adored Williams for bucking the trend Octavian s struggle is a mosaic of varied emotion but I felt the passionate depth Williams portrayed in him was as refreshing as it was provocative The story is somber and somewhat difficult in terms of theme but in my eyes it stands as the most pleasantly surprising submission of the anthologyThe Photograph by Kate Kerrigan Kate Kerrigan s The Photograph stands out in that it is the only one of the Fall of Poppies Submissions that doesn t take place on the continent Centered in Dublin the story incorporates a larger world view of the conflict and I couldn t help appreciating how it touched on additional conflict of the age The modern elements didn t appeal to me as much as the historic ones did but like Williams I think Kerrigan characterizations of Clive and Eileen defied both stereotypes and trends Hush by Hazel Gaynor Hazel Gaynor s Hush anchors the collection as the final submission in Fall of Poppies It was hardest of the stories for me to get into but ultimately I think it the most comprehensive All the stories highlight a love of some sort but Hush touches on many It plays with other emotions notably courage of conviction and individual guilt but I was particularly drawn to Gaynor s illustration of hope in the face of tragedy and loss Fight or Flight of the eleventh day Supernatural Academy (Supernatural Academy, of the eleventh month November 11 1918 After four long

H new promise even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lostAs families come back together lovers reunite and strangers take solace in each other everyone has a story to tellIn this moving unforgettable collection nine top hist. Overall rating 366 so rounded up to 4 starsMy rating is obtained by giving each of the short stories their own rating and dividing by 9 number of works included in the collection My overall impression This was an easy book to read since there are natural stopping points throughout While I m not a huge fan of short stories I do like them when we ll written There were a couple in this collection I truly wish the author would have held onto and developed and entire novel around the characters Like most collections there was a story or two that didn t hit the mark for me I found it a bit surprising that one of those was an author I have read and enjoyed in the past Individual ratings and reviews 4 The Daughter of Belgium by Marci Jefferson This was the first time reading anything by Marci Jefferson I will surely look for future full length stories from her This was a good short but I think the limited space hurt the flow of the story a bit It was a regular build up and then EVERYTHING happened in the last 10 pages 5 The Record Set Right by Lauren Willig I really enjoyed this story The setting and atmosphere felt spot on As I think will happen with many of these shorts I was left wishing these characters could have had a full length book appearance They were nuanced enough though that I was not left wondering or guessing Also praise to the author for not falling back on the most annoying nails biting into her palms description Yeah I have commented in several reviews how she over uses this phrase I was relieved to read one of her stories without it She s such a great writer but for this one idiosyncrasy 35 All for the Love of You by Jennifer Robson I really enjoyed this story However there was a huge glaring error in the timeline I hope it was only editing and not the author s stupid mistake It took me out of the story so much and hurt the flow that I cannot help but rate it lower than I had anticipated up to that point 25 After You ve Gone by Evangeline Holland I was planning to give this story a higher rating while reading the first few pages The writing was pretty good and I enjoyed the concept people of color during WWI in Paris was very interesting and not something I d read before I even began to love the characters But what happened is most likely not entirely the author s fault There was just not enough pages in a short story format to adeuately tell the unfolding story It was obvious that entire chunks of needed background and development probably were left out for the sake of space There were odd things happening and it was hard to follow Superfluous characters that mattered nothing to the story The worst thing was a cat supposedly left in a bag all day long Huh It had to happen that way because these people only met one day and the guy had to end up with the cat It was so unbelievable it made me roll my eyes 5 Something Worth Landing For by Jessica Brockmole Loved this one It is my winner for best work in this collection I wish these characters could have made an appearance in a full length novel I fell in love with both the male and female lead characters I even wanted to know about the other pilots in the suadron I would really have enjoyed a detailed telling of their story But as only a great author could pull off I wasn t left feeling short changed in the 30 pages I received Excellent writing 2 Hour of the Bells by Heather Webb I didn t much care for this story It was not my cup of tea It had an overwhelming feeling of doom I realize this is book of stories centered around The Great War but the other authors have found a way to tell tales and create characters that are not depressing The writing itself was fine therefore I ll raise my rating to two stars from the one my heart wants to award 45 An American Airman in Paris by Beatriz Williams This was a great story I loved it up until the ending I m simply not a fan of ambiguous endings I can see how the language and sexual situations could be off putting to a segment of the population as I ve seen noted in other reviews However I think the voice and demeanor given to the American Flyboys was spot on These were desperate and trying times I will also note this is the only piece that is told entirely from a male point of view I found that fact very refreshing and it solidified my already held belief that Beatriz Williams is a great author who can tackle just about any character with accuracy 25 The Photograph by Kate Kerrigan I kinda liked this story but I didn t love it It felt very out of place The liberation of Ireland did not fit the Great War theme The only true connection is the time British soldiers were stationed in Ireland to uell uprisings If that was the only fault I might still like this one but alas there was very little substance to the story I don t want to give spoilers so I ll suffice to say I dare anyone to read this and not feel the same 4 The Hush by Hazel Gaynor I think this could have been a beautiful full length novel However I m not sure the characters would have been strong enough to carry it I think of all the selections this one was the most literary The author attempted some symbolism and deep thinking moments I think for the most part it was effective I will be the first to admit I m not a great fan of flowery literary work I guess a short bit was tolerable if you consider my honest rating Čokoladne godine other everyone has a story to tellIn this moving unforgettable collection nine top hist.
