My Dear, I wanted to tell you by Louisa Young

It's Wednesday, 11:59am (will post this text tomorrow, means on Thursday the 19th of March) and I've just finished the most wonderful fictional story and it will stay in my mind for long... ahhh I do say the same words most of the time after finishing a tender novel. I cried and lived this story, was able to go back and imagine all those war scenes and the loving characters. This novel is fiction with aspects of fact and some details from the book are real which gives very realistic effect. 
It is an amazing first world war novel. The author tells a love story between Riley Purefoy and Nadine Waveney. Riley is coming from a poor family, Nadine is from an aristocratic family. Nadine and Riley built such a strong friendship, more than a friendship, and they both always knew their friendship could not be anything more. Riley went to the front in France, after a while he got serious wounds on his face... ohhh I won't tell you the whole story, because I want and encourage you, my dear reader, to read it and weep a bit. 


Some of my favorite lines:

“Papa," she said easily, happily, walking across the park with him to the Albert Hall. "What is it like to be in love?"
"Oh, it’s marvellous," he said. "Or terrible. Or both. The Romans saw it as a fit of madness that you wouldn't wish on anybody. But there’s nothing you can do about it, that’s the main thing.” 

“No one ever wins a war, and wars are never over.” 

“More talk of love would lead to the difficulties surrounding...Oh, God, he loved her, he did, she did, they did, it was."

"I am always going to remind them of the war, and they will thus always remind me, and I am never going to be able to forget anything."

"I have killed. I have saved. Normality does not care. Now I mush walk city streets, push through a door, push though a crowd."

"Talking is what you do with who you trust.
Talking is human.
Humans talk to each other. 
The truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth
You can all talk please talk
please trust
please love"

Keep yourself happy!!!
Much love

  4. Nu am mai citit de multa vreme o carte despre razboi, dar am vazut in iarna aceasta cam multe filme, pana cand Mihnea a spus ca daca mai punem un film cu al doilea razboi mondial, el nu se mai uita :))
    S-a nimerit ca toate au fost despre al doilea razboi, dar saracutul, nici cu primul, nici cu altul nu mai vrea. Sunt cutremuratoare, destul de greu de vizionat de el, desi a vazut destule, nu e de mirare ca nu mai vrea.
    Te pup, draga mea, nu stiu daca aceasta carte o fi pe la noi.

    1. Ahhh imi dau seama ca deja s-a plictisit copilul de atata filme despre razboi. E mic si ii plac schimbarile... Va pup, Liuba x

  8. Oh, I can only imagine how emotional this story must be! I need to spread my wings when it comes to book genres as I usually stick to the same things, so thank you for the recommendation - I hope you'll do more book reviews like this, it's such a great way to find new books to check out :)
