Bess Crawford is on leave from the front when she stumbles over a woman outside her house She takes pity on her and learns that the women has been struck by her husband and has fled to London She slowly gains the woman s trust and learns that her name is Lydia and that her husband s name is Roger Bess agrees to travel with her home to her house in the country But this act of kindness will result in uite a lot of trouble as everyone in the household inclusive Bess will be suspected in a murder case Once again has Charles Todd written an engrossing historical novel with where Bess en up having to find out the truth She must try to figure out why anyone would kill a houseguest but this time even she is a suspect Prior to the man s death has he asked Roger at dinner about a child that looked like Julianna Rogers little sister that died when she was just 6 years old But who is the child in uestion and could that simple uestion really be the reason for his deathAs much as I enjoyed the book and the mystery was I also a bit puzzled why it all had to be such a hush hush thing When the truth finally was revealed about the child was not that overly surprised I would have liked a interesting and perhaps surprising mystery than that I felt that the family mourning of Julianna was frankly a bit over the top sometimes that it could affect the present time that much Yeah it was tragical and yeah she was a beautiful child But sometimes the truth could perhaps save some heartache and time Still I enjoyed finding out the truth even though it was a little let down that it wasn t that complexBut the murders is all whole other story I failed to realize who the murder was It wasn t until Bess and Simon Brandon realized who it was and then everything made senseOne thing that really pleased me and confused me was that Sergeant Lassiter Lari has finally made his first entrance in this book series I am a bit confused about the name of him since I read about him A Pattern of Lies where he was Sergeant Lassiter but here is he called Sergeant Lari Could there really be two different Aussie Sergeants with the same trademark Kookaburra laughterI just have to read on to figure it out45 stars

First Sentence A cold rain had followed me from France to England and an even colder wind greeted me as we pulled into the railway station in London Returning from the battlefields of France to England for Christmas leave WWI nurse Bess Crawford encounters a desperate woman rain drenched and bruised in her building s entry Offering her shelter Bess slowly learns the woman Lydia Ellis had been struck by her husband during an argument Lydia begs Bess to return to the family s house in Sussex with her and fearing Lydia may have a concussion Bess agrees entering a home filled with tension and ultimately murder with Bess being an initial suspect The mother and son team of Charles Todd write some of the most evocative descriptions creating a wonderfully strong sense of time and place The alternating settings of London and English country house and the stark reality cruelty and death of war are deftly handled Even they deal with the front and the wounded in a manner which is strongly impactful yet not overly graphic The dialogue is so well done it is atmospheric The forest is I don t know not haunted but most certainly it broods with a well placed sense of irony and occasional wry humor The language doesn t work hard at reflecting the period but the sense of it is still there particularly with the use of the old collective noun a crocodile of children Bess is a character who has grown on me with each successive book She is a dedicated nurse but the authors have restrained her from coming across as prissy The relationship with Simon her father s ex Sergeant Major and now assistant is one handled with proper decorum and appropriateness to the period but one rather hopes to see grow as the series progresses Lydia the wife in trouble is very well constructed as a character who is difficult to like but one who elicits one s sympathy There were a couple weaknesses to the book It did become tiresome that some of the characters were continuously referred to by their full names and although I suppose necessary for the plot I did have a problem with on significant decision made by Bess to not tell the police about a piece of evidence Both of these are minor points however when weighed against the book s strengths A Bitter Truth is the best so far of the three books in the Bess Crawford series How lucky are we readers to have two such good series from Charles ToddA BITTER TRUTH Hist Mys Bess Crawford EnglandFrance 1917WWI VGTodd Charles 3rd in seriesWm Morrow 2011 Unc Proof HC ISBN
