MEDIA REVIEWS

"All battlefields are personal. For proof of this look no further than this gentle book by Wearne. I like it because it lacks any judgement. Quite clearly she has deep feelings about the war, but they do not intrude. But the author sticks to the personal inscriptions of the bereaved made a century ago. Their grief, their tributes do not need further enhancement. Explanation: yes. Interpretation: no. The device is simple as it is brilliant. Take an inscription from a soldier's grave and make him real for a new generation. Wearne achieves this here."
