    I love books that offer more than one thing. This book offered a great story (actually two when I think of it), historical information and descriptions of Scottland I loved. Let's start with the story. I really liked the both main characters, Lexie and her Mum Flora. They have no easy lives, but their beliefs and strengths are obvious. I love their connection to music that is well shown throu

    I really enjoyed this book. It is set in Scotland at Loch Ewe. It tells the story of Flora, who served in the WRENS during the war and of her daughter Lexie in the 1970s. There is a lot of historical fact woven into the story. I previously knew very little about the Arctic Convoys, so I learnt about that era, almost without realising I was learning. We also learn about life during the War at Loch Ewe; about the c

    Set in Scotland, with a dual timeline, the story follows the lives of Flora during World War II and her daughter, Lexie, in the late 70s. Lexie, disillusioned with life in London and no longer able to sing, returns to her late mother's cottage in the Scottish village where she grew up. But she finds it hard to adjust to her new life.

    I loved reading both the characters' stories, and the background setting of

    The Skylark's Secret, set in Scotland, is book with a duel timeline. The first follows Flora's life during WW2 and the second is her daughter Lexie in the 70's. Lexie returns from London after she is unable to sing on the west end after falling pregnant and straining her voice. Lexie moves into her late mothers Cottage and finds it hard to adjust to the village life.

    Fiona Valpy’s, The Skylark’s Secret was a beautiful book about the depth of mother’s love as well as friendship and love during wartime. I loved reading this book and especially loved the dual-storyline describing 1940s Flora and Alec and their very different familial bonds and mother and daughter, Lexie and Daisy in the present day.

    The book is set in Loch Eowe, described as a quaint and close-knit crofting village
