A poignant story of love and redemption, The Moon Field explores the loss of innocence through a war that destroys everything except the bonds of human hearts. No man's land is a place in the heart: pitted, cratered and empty as the moon...Hidden in a soldier's tin box are a painting, a pocket watch, and a dance card - keepsakes of three lives. From their different social milieu, a young postman, a lieutenant and a lady are damagingly bound together in a drama of love, class and war. It is 1914. George Farrell cycles through the tranquil Cumberland fells to deliver a letter, unaware that it will change his life. George has fallen for the rich and beautiful daughter at the Manor House, Miss Violet, but when she lets slip the contents of the letter George is heartbroken to find that she is already promised to another man, Lieutenant Edmund Lyne. George escapes his heartbreak by joining the patriotic rush to war, only to find that his past is not so easily avoided. His rite of passage into adulthood is one of blood and shame that leaves him believing that no woman will be able to love the man he has become.… (lisätietoja)

A lovely book full of characters that you can relate to, well written and easy to read

The Moon Field is a historical novel set during World War I, portraying the impact of the war on two young women and one man in a Lake District village. Kitty Ashwell is the postmaster’s daughter and works at the Post Office with her parents and other staff including postman George Farrell. He is smitten with beautiful, upper class Violet, but Violet was hoping to get engaged to Edmund who has gone off to fight.

The story includes accounts of work at the village post office, which I found quite interesting, of the fighting as George soon enlists, and of how events affect the characters.

This was an enjoyable enough read but quite predictable . ( )

The main character in this book is George Farrell, a postman who signs up to go and fight in the First World War. He is smitten with Violet, the daughter at the local Manor House but when he finds out she is smitten with someone else George makes the rash decision to go to war. He leaves behind his family and his good friend, Kitty.

The book is in three parts: the first is civilian life and sign up; the second is Flanders and fighting; and the third is dealing with life back home. I did find the first part quite difficult to engage with, and I suppose it's like a lot of war novels, you know that it's building up to the action part of it. Whilst I thought this was a well-written book, it didn't really draw me in as much as I would have liked and I never had that much empathy for the characters. Despite the subject matter, I didn't come away with much of a feeling for the horror of war, or how the men dealt with life after their fighting days were over. Nevertheless, I do think it will appeal to a lot of people and will be a good read for the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI in 2014. ( )
