    A brilliant book,very well explained in fields I never knew existed, Sue manages to bring you into the world she writes about..to think all these things happened in a close reach of where I have grown up..makes me proud to have lived in a part where so much history has stories..

    Poppies occupies the same space as Wilsher s other books between the harsh and sometimes hideous realities of life on the breadline and the compelling, heartfelt and inspiring stories of her characters, many of them strong and fearless women There is also humour, particularly in the way she conveys the mannerisms and ways of the privileged classes.Again, Wilsher throws her readers into the world of WW1, this time into the explosives factories staffed by the munitionettes And it s not just history, because Wilsher brings it to life Just the white feather handed to Sid in the first chapter shows vividly the hard choices and realities families facedIt s 100 years since the WW1 armistice, but Wilsher makes it feel as if it s yesterday.
