On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month November 11 1918 After four long dark years of fighting the Great War ends at last and the world is forever changed For soldiers loved ones and survivors the years ahead stretch wit. Find this and other reviews at are a handful of authors I truly love reading and when I get an email from one asking me to review their work Well it s not a uestion of if I ll review it so much as when I can fit it into my schedule It doesn t happen often but this is how I came to possess an ARC edition of Fall of Poppies I d been eyeing the anthology since it was announced and thought it d make a great companion to Grand Central It is an entirely different group of authors but it in terms of subject matter I felt the two complimented one another and having loved the first I couldn t help being drawn to the second I suppose I should admit that I was familiar with the works of Jessica Brockmole Marci Jefferson and Heather Webb prior to Fall of Poppies I ve recommended Letters from Skye Enchantress of Paris Girl on the Golden Coin Rodin s Lover and Becoming Josephine several times each and I was eager to see how each writer would navigate storytelling on a smaller scale I admire each greatly and couldn t have been happier about getting to experience their latest publications before the official release dateHazel Gaynor Evangeline Holland Kate Kerrigan Jennifer Robson Beatriz Williams and Lauren Willig were names I knew well I d eyed many of their titles with interest but Fall of Poppies marks my first experience with each It was a long time coming but Fall of Poppies was an introduction I wont soon forget and I ll likely be on the lookout for each of these ladies in the coming year The Daughter of Belgium by Marci Jefferson Marci Jefferson s The Daughter of Belguim like many of the stories touches on a lot of interesting subject matter Taking inspiration from the story of Edith Cavell Jefferson tackled the silent struggles of those who dedicated to tending the wounded Strength tempered by pain and loss is not something I see everyday but Jefferson s presentation of Amelie proved both convincing and powerful I liked the combination and felt the complexity of her personality and past experience intensely relatableThe Record Set Right by Lauren Willig Lauren Willig s The Record Set Right was bittersweet in tone but the drama it depicted brought a smile to my fact A tale of misunderstanding and missed opportunities Millie s retrospective narrative stuck a chord with me Romance isn t only for the young and I liked how this short defied trends to illustrate that idea The pivotal moment was slightly predictable but characters themselves were uniuely drawn and held genuine appeal in my eyes All For the Love of You by Jennifer Robson Jennifer Robson s All For the Love of You highlights one of the intriguing chapters of WWI in that it deals with mask making and the effort help those who d been disfigured in the conflict The struggles Daisy witnesses are illuminating but the craftsmanship and professionalism she witnesses in the studio is what captured my attention Anna Coleman Ladd is not a character I d encountered in my studies but I enjoyed learning about her through Robson s effort and appreciate how the piece illustrated both her and her work After You ve Gone by Evangeline Holland The plot details of Evangeline Holland s After You ve Gone were a little far fetched for my personal tastes but I loved the subject matter she explored and the way the author approached it It is the first of the anthology submission to include the male POV and the story touched on larger concepts such as racism and artistic pursuits in times of war Holland s work is not heavy handed but flows naturally toward a subtle touching conclusion Something Worth Landing For by Jessica Brockmole In terms of plot Jessica Brockmole s Something Worth Landing For was my favorite submission to Fall of Poppies I love the balance she found in her portrayal of Victorie and Wes the vulnerability she brought to each character and the material she covered but there is an authentic uality to the drama these characters experience that struck so close to home it made my heart ache Simple but beautifully drawn the story took my breath away and brought a tear to my eye Hour of the Bells by Heather Webb Conceptually Heather Webb s Hour of the Bells stopped me dead in my tracks Born a German citizen Beatrix married a Frenchman and watched as their son took up arms against her homeland For her the war is intensely personal and threatens crush her heart and soul Hour of the Bells is a love story but not the kind I d anticipated when I accepted Fall of Poppies for review Emotionally it is raw powerful and poignant The kind of story that haunts you long after you ve said goodbye An American Airman in Paris by Beatriz Williams I cheered when I realized Beatriz Williams An American Airman in Paris was written entirely from the male POV I was uite vocal about my frustration with the marginalization of the male narrator at the 2015 Historical Novel Society Conference and adored Williams for bucking the trend Octavian s struggle is a mosaic of varied emotion but I felt the passionate depth Williams portrayed in him was as refreshing as it was provocative The story is somber and somewhat difficult in terms of theme but in my eyes it stands as the most pleasantly surprising submission of the anthologyThe Photograph by Kate Kerrigan Kate Kerrigan s The Photograph stands out in that it is the only one of the Fall of Poppies Submissions that doesn t take place on the continent Centered in Dublin the story incorporates a larger world view of the conflict and I couldn t help appreciating how it touched on additional conflict of the age The modern elements didn t appeal to me as much as the historic ones did but like Williams I think Kerrigan characterizations of Clive and Eileen defied both stereotypes and trends Hush by Hazel Gaynor Hazel Gaynor s Hush anchors the collection as the final submission in Fall of Poppies It was hardest of the stories for me to get into but ultimately I think it the most comprehensive All the stories highlight a love of some sort but Hush touches on many It plays with other emotions notably courage of conviction and individual guilt but I was particularly drawn to Gaynor s illustration of hope in the face of tragedy and loss Beyond the Pale uestion of if I ll review it so much as when I can fit it into my schedule It doesn t happen often but this is how I came
