The Care and Management of Lies

This is a lovely little book for those times when you're not in the mood for heavy, analytical reading. The underlying sense of feminist issues and an anti-war sentiments is pervasive through one of the main characters.   The Care of Management of Lies is set in England in World War I. As the plot progresses, the lives of its three protagonists are radically changed. With imagery and emotion, Ms. Winspear sweeps the reader away from the bucolic farmland to the horrors of the battle field. In all, I enjoyed the way she tells the story and although the ending was something I didn't understand, I looked forward each day to joining the characters in their journeys.  The novel is prosaic in its delivery and enjoyable book that ended in a way that is controversial.  Check our Catalog
