    I've read almost all the books in the Bess Crawford series and it's always with nice to get a new book in my hands. In A FORGOTTEN PLACE by Charles Todd, one would think now that the Great War is over that life would be easier for Bess. That her work as a nurse would be less demandin...

    I found this entry in the series very hard to get through. Much of the plot was boring & repetitive - with Bess stuck for days at a time in Rachel's house and her constant refrain of What is going on in this village?. It was realistic, perhaps, but not very exciting to read about....

    Compared to the other Bess Crawford books this one was a big disappointment. Nothing really happens until Simon arrives well over halfway through the book. Bess interferes in a situation that was none of her business, worrying her family, neglecting the clinic, and putting herself in u...

    First Sentence: The war had ended, but not the suffering. The war is officially over, and WWI field nurse Bess Crawford has been reassigned to a clinic in England for amputee soldiers. After the suicide of one of her patients, Bess takes advantage of her 10-day leave, traveling to W...

    I like reading series, and I have read all of the books from this duo over the years. It is similar to visiting old friends though not every visit can be equally rewarding. The Great War has come to a close, but there are amputees to care for in various clinics as Bess continues her wo...

    Well, I really wondered about the time that Bess heard Hugh in the next room humming (they were upstairs), and when she got downstairs, he came in from outside where he'd been doing something with the lambs. Otherwise, the story could have been told in half the pages and been better. ...

    Was looking forward to the new Bess Crawford book, but I was really disappointed. It was like watching paint dry, so --dare I say it--boring. There, I said it, and I'm amazed myself as I have loved all the prior books, but they actually had an interesting story, which IMO this one didn...

    This was very hard to get through and it drug in so many parts. The war has ended and Bess takes a leave to check on amputees. Along the way, she ends up in a mining village where an avalanche happens and one of the soliders commits suicide. She than ends up in a Gothic like village. S...

    WWI has ended, but Bess' role as a nurse has not. I loved the sobering realism created in this novel about what it was like for soldiers with severe injuries and/or amputations. How would their families receive them? How would they support their families? In A Forgotten Place Bess i...

    Really enjoyed this; best of the Crawford series so far. One of the things I most appreciate in the Ian Rutledge series is their strong sense of place, they are usually set in a very distinct place in Britain, one with its own landscape, culture and history. This hasn't been true befor...

    Thanks to Goodreads and the publisher for an ARC of this. I picked up a copy of book 9 in the series last year and tore through the entire run as a result. I absolutely love the character of Bess Crawford (and I am shipping Bess & Simon SO HARD). I was excited when I saw ther...

    In some ways this seemed more like a thriller than a mystery: Bess Crawford has traveled to a remote area of Wales to visit a former patient. Once there, her driver decamps in the middle of the night, leaving Bess abandoned with n0 way to contact her family or anyone else. (view spo...

    Received through FirstReads... I found this to be an engaging book from about the third page in. It's set in one of my favorite time periods, and that was brought to life quite well. I thought the author had a way of making you feel the atmosphere without resorting to overly wordy des...

    I?ve read and deeply enjoyed all the Bess Crawford novels, but I am beginning to tire of Bess consistently appealing to the Colonel Sahib or Simon Brandon for help/information/protection. I keep trying to see her as a strong, independent, resourceful character but find it hard when t...

    I've read almost all the books in the Bess Crawford series and it's always with nice to get a new book in my hands. In A FORGOTTEN PLACE by Charles Todd, one would think now that the Great War is over that life would be easier for Bess. That her work as a nurse would be less demandin...

    I found this entry in the series very hard to get through. Much of the plot was boring & repetitive - with Bess stuck for days at a time in Rachel's house and her constant refrain of What is going on in this village?. It was realistic, perhaps, but not very exciting to read about....

    Compared to the other Bess Crawford books this one was a big disappointment. Nothing really happens until Simon arrives well over halfway through the book. Bess interferes in a situation that was none of her business, worrying her family, neglecting the clinic, and putting herself in u...

    First Sentence: The war had ended, but not the suffering. The war is officially over, and WWI field nurse Bess Crawford has been reassigned to a clinic in England for amputee soldiers. After the suicide of one of her patients, Bess takes advantage of her 10-day leave, traveling to W...

    I like reading series, and I have read all of the books from this duo over the years. It is similar to visiting old friends though not every visit can be equally rewarding. The Great War has come to a close, but there are amputees to care for in various clinics as Bess continues her wo...

    Well, I really wondered about the time that Bess heard Hugh in the next room humming (they were upstairs), and when she got downstairs, he came in from outside where he'd been doing something with the lambs. Otherwise, the story could have been told in half the pages and been better. ...

    Was looking forward to the new Bess Crawford book, but I was really disappointed. It was like watching paint dry, so --dare I say it--boring. There, I said it, and I'm amazed myself as I have loved all the prior books, but they actually had an interesting story, which IMO this one didn...

    This was very hard to get through and it drug in so many parts. The war has ended and Bess takes a leave to check on amputees. Along the way, she ends up in a mining village where an avalanche happens and one of the soliders commits suicide. She than ends up in a Gothic like village. S...

    Really enjoyed this; best of the Crawford series so far. One of the things I most appreciate in the Ian Rutledge series is their strong sense of place, they are usually set in a very distinct place in Britain, one with its own landscape, culture and history. This hasn't been true befor...

    Sense of place unfolded gradually as suspense built over the unnatural actions of this seafront village in Wales. Bess Crawford's reactions to the suspicions of the small minded villagers is admirable in her unwillingness to sit by whilst injustices and violence are perpetrated. A lot ...

    I've read almost all the books in the Bess Crawford series and it's always with nice to get a new book in my hands. In A FORGOTTEN PLACE by Charles Todd, one would think now that the Great War is over that life would be easier for Bess. That her work as a nurse would be less demandin...

    I found this entry in the series very hard to get through. Much of the plot was boring & repetitive - with Bess stuck for days at a time in Rachel's house and her constant refrain of What is going on in this village?. It was realistic, perhaps, but not very exciting to read about....

    Compared to the other Bess Crawford books this one was a big disappointment. Nothing really happens until Simon arrives well over halfway through the book. Bess interferes in a situation that was none of her business, worrying her family, neglecting the clinic, and putting herself in u...

    First Sentence: The war had ended, but not the suffering. The war is officially over, and WWI field nurse Bess Crawford has been reassigned to a clinic in England for amputee soldiers. After the suicide of one of her patients, Bess takes advantage of her 10-day leave, traveling to W...

    I like reading series, and I have read all of the books from this duo over the years. It is similar to visiting old friends though not every visit can be equally rewarding. The Great War has come to a close, but there are amputees to care for in various clinics as Bess continues her wo...

    Well, I really wondered about the time that Bess heard Hugh in the next room humming (they were upstairs), and when she got downstairs, he came in from outside where he'd been doing something with the lambs. Otherwise, the story could have been told in half the pages and been better. ...

    Was looking forward to the new Bess Crawford book, but I was really disappointed. It was like watching paint dry, so --dare I say it--boring. There, I said it, and I'm amazed myself as I have loved all the prior books, but they actually had an interesting story, which IMO this one didn...

    This was very hard to get through and it drug in so many parts. The war has ended and Bess takes a leave to check on amputees. Along the way, she ends up in a mining village where an avalanche happens and one of the soliders commits suicide. She than ends up in a Gothic like village. S...

    WWI has ended, but Bess' role as a nurse has not. I loved the sobering realism created in this novel about what it was like for soldiers with severe injuries and/or amputations. How would their families receive them? How would they support their families? In A Forgotten Place Bess i...

    Really enjoyed this; best of the Crawford series so far. One of the things I most appreciate in the Ian Rutledge series is their strong sense of place, they are usually set in a very distinct place in Britain, one with its own landscape, culture and history. This hasn't been true befor...

    Sense of place unfolded gradually as suspense built over the unnatural actions of this seafront village in Wales. Bess Crawford's reactions to the suspicions of the small minded villagers is admirable in her unwillingness to sit by whilst injustices and violence are perpetrated. A lot ...

    I have longer fan of the Bess Crawford series and the tenth book did not disappoint. The war was over and Bess is assign to an amputee ward. Where she met Captain Hugh and his men. They all had missing legs or arms as they had been ambushed in the last few days of the war. It wipe out ...

    It's so exciting to come back from vacation and find a book in the mail, just waiting for you! Especially a pre release book! I really enjoyed the story, the series has moved beyond WWI now so we'll see how the authors continue to build Bess' life. I liked the descriptions of the small...

    Another stellar book by the mother/son team known as Charles Todd was the perfect choice after a really crazy one by Dennis Lehane. World War I is over, but the casualties remain. Bess is working at a hospital and is moved to another one that specializes in amputees. She is pleased to ...

    I've read almost all the books in the Bess Crawford series and it's always with nice to get a new book in my hands. In A FORGOTTEN PLACE by Charles Todd, one would think now that the Great War is over that life would be easier for Bess. That her work as a nurse would be less demandin...

    I found this entry in the series very hard to get through. Much of the plot was boring & repetitive - with Bess stuck for days at a time in Rachel's house and her constant refrain of What is going on in this village?. It was realistic, perhaps, but not very exciting to read about....

    Compared to the other Bess Crawford books this one was a big disappointment. Nothing really happens until Simon arrives well over halfway through the book. Bess interferes in a situation that was none of her business, worrying her family, neglecting the clinic, and putting herself in u...

    First Sentence: The war had ended, but not the suffering. The war is officially over, and WWI field nurse Bess Crawford has been reassigned to a clinic in England for amputee soldiers. After the suicide of one of her patients, Bess takes advantage of her 10-day leave, traveling to W...

    I like reading series, and I have read all of the books from this duo over the years. It is similar to visiting old friends though not every visit can be equally rewarding. The Great War has come to a close, but there are amputees to care for in various clinics as Bess continues her wo...

    Really enjoyed this; best of the Crawford series so far. One of the things I most appreciate in the Ian Rutledge series is their strong sense of place, they are usually set in a very distinct place in Britain, one with its own landscape, culture and history. This hasn't been true befor...

    It's December, 1918. The war has ended. The soldiers who lived through the war are heading home. Many are broken men, having lost limbs to mortars or eyes and lungs to gas. Nurse, Sister Bess Crawford, is concerned for the men of the Welsh unit that had recently left her care. While on...
