2015 book 148

Michelle Cooper's The FitzOsbornes at War
The final book in the Montmoray series is a well-done look at England in wartime--the various ages/genders/classes of the characters make for a varied portrait, and Cooper portrays Sophie really growing up in a nuanced way. Are parts of this maybe unrealistic? Sure. Are parts heartbreaking? Yes.  Did I like how all the various romances ended up? Definitely (especially the surprising one that I would like to talk about at length but spoilers. Weirdly the second YA book I've read recently with such a resolution). High fives all around. A/A-.
