After The War Is Over

After the War is Over: A Novel - Jennifer Robson


Charlotte graduated from an elite college, became a governess,​ worked as a nurse during the war, ​worked in an office with a female boss who was a suffragist, and then​ became a journalist.

​Charlotte's job as a governess turned out to be quite unpleasant, but she did meet a man she could never forget​
but wasn’t able to marry him because of her class.

​ AFTER THE WAR IS OVER goes back and forth between Charlotte's younger years as a governess and then her present-day situation.  I do enjoy books that move into the past and then come to the present, but the book dragged.

The cover pulled me in, but the book's content was not that enjoyable for me.​

There was too much about ​social status and not enough of a plot even though the book was mainly about Charlotte's life​.  The writing style was good, but the lack of an interesting plot had me plodding through to see what happened.​  3/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
