This of course is based around the times of the war, we have short glimpses of Land Army girls, the time when women were needed to do jobs of men. I did personally find this hard to follow at first because of not reading prior books in this series. I just jumped right in and didn't realize, I wish I had. I would highly recommend you reading the books in order to get the benefit of the story. My thanks go to Carina UK via Net Galley for allowing me to read and review.

    I really enjoyed reading this book, Kitty is a very brave girl who needs to be loved. At last she found it with Archie and the people on Dark River Farm. I knew the places in Devon that was written in the book, being a Plymouth girl born and bred

    This last instalment in The Oaklands Manor Trilogy enhances Terri Nixon’s brilliant writing skills even more. The author drags the reader into another time, making them struggle and fight with the characters to survive while also falling in love. And love is what really gives them—and us—the strength to face any danger. Something terrible happened to Kitty while in the fields, something that unfortunately she can’t let go so easily even now that she’s in a safe place. She undoubtedly found a home This last instalment in The Oaklands Manor Trilogy enhances Terri Nixon’s brilliant writing skills even more. The author drags the reader into another time, making them struggle and fight with the characters to survive while also falling in love. And love is what really gives them—and us—the strength to face any danger. Something terrible happened to Kitty while in the fields, something that unfortunately she can’t let go so easily even now that she’s in a safe place. She undoubtedly found a home in Dark River Farm, but the horrible and traumatic event that has ‘broken’ a part of her keeps giving her quite the nightmares, so much that she pushes away her hopes/dreams and the man she has been in love with since forever . . . But not thinking about Archie and his way to call her Young Kittlington—which gives you a pang of joy every time—is an impossible task, even when new ‘distractions’ come her way. Our heroine has certainly a lot to face, but she is a brave and strong young woman with a big heart that touches those of the readers. With the right mix of drama and romance, Daughter of Dark River Farm is a great conclusion of a trilogy I do not hesitate to recommend. Grab the first book now, fall in love with the characters and keep the read up until you find out how everything falls into place in this last, well delivered instalment! I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review. This does not affect in any way my opinion of the book or the content of my review originally posted at Darkest Sins.

We also learn that Captain Archie Buchanan has gone. The subsequent chapters take us back to 1914 at the Maitland family home in West Derby, Merseyside. Just at the outbreak of the Great War. 16 year-old Kitty falls for Archie, a friend of Oliver, her elder brother. Archie is leaving full of hope and expectation to go to war. The story moves forward and backward in time to cover the war years and the times in Devon. What does this novel have: Excitement and high expectations about the war. The reality of the war. From the viewpoints of soldiers and those connected through Red Cross work. Family expectations and family rejection. Glimpses of life for Land Army girls. Convalescence and the reality of returning to the front. There are a lot of twists and turns with trust earned and trust broken. I wish I had come across the earlier two books before reading this. A novel which provides a different viewpoint of life during those troubled times.

    This is a follow on book featuring Kitty Maitland She’s settled at Dark River Farm in Devon where she feels safe. She spent time in Flanders and is still recovering from that. Two new visitors threaten her peace. One is a rogueish man who might prove to be a welcome distraction but the other is a woman who has links to the farm. Things no longer feel safe and life feels threatening. It’s based in 1917 and the story tells of the war years and the farm life.

    Once more a perfect story beautifully crafted by a master word smith. One less star than "A Rose in Flanders Fields" only due to personal reasons; I didn't feel such a personal connection with Kitty Maitland as I had with Evie Davies. But language, setting, characters, all come together to make an addictive tale, and I hope Terri Nixon will write many more books like these three.

    Third in the Oakland Farm trilogy. The second book was by far the best, this one was Kitty's story & I found it ok but a bit boring. Third in the Oakland Farm trilogy. The second book was by far the best, this one was Kitty's story & I found it ok but a bit boring.
