Lark Farm - In Flanders Fields is masterfully written and researched. The reader will actually find him/herself upon the ghostly Max along with the author, winding along the roadways of the Belgium countryside, feeling the emotions of the devastating losses of the Great War. As you read about dining, the gourmet culinary descriptions are so brilliant that they cause your mouth to water, and the bouquet of fine wine to waft into your head. Mystery is artfully embedded into the plot, so much so that the lines between historical fact and fiction begin to blur. The illustrations are meant to illuminate the monuments and the landscape of the story, and indeed they do! Readers will want to look back at each illustration after reading a chapter and find that the artwork opens like a beautiful flower. Anyone who is a lover of life will love this splendid book!
