    A Bitter Truth E–book/E–pub So so Bess is an inconsistent character the family that she is drawn in to help is full of stereotypes and their obsession with a dead perfect child is a bit over the top The plot is full of red herrings and bogs down as a result The war time scenes are good and the character of the Aussie sergeant Lari is a welcome bright spot in the midst of all the starchy and angst ridden types

Charles Todd s A Bitter Truth interweaves the vices of war with the failings of families into a psychologically and historically compelling mystery set in England in 1917 Bess Crawford an intelligent and fearless nurse working on the front lines in France comes home on leave to discover a frightened young woman with a bruised face hiding on the doorstep of her London flat Unable by nature to leave the mysterious stranger out in the cold winter night Bess convinces her to take shelter inside Little does Bess know what a great deal of trouble she has brought into her life Charles Todd who is actually a mother son partnership made up of Caroline and Charles Todd excels at keeping the war and its manifold repercussions and tragedies front and center even while much of the action takes place in England Todd also portrays an extended family already traumatized before the war and now disintegrating under the war s pressures Bess finds herself unwillingly bound to this family through her initial concern for Lydia the young woman on her doorstep and the possibility she needs to be protected from a violent marriage That turns out to be only the first level of secrets and crimes that will be unveiled throughoutYou re never sure whether those crimes and secrets arise from the war or whether they are connected to the private history of this one family The interplay shows how even far from the actual fighting the war has torn apart even a small country town and its denizens This is one of the most sophisticated critiues of the effects of war I ve read so subtle you won t notice it while you re enjoying the mystery but its resonances will stay with you long after you finish reading This is the third of the Bess Crawford mysteries preceded by A Duty to the Dead and An Impartial Witness A fourth book in the series An Unmarked Grave is now available

At the outset it is necessary to say that I have not read the first two Bess Crawford Mysteries so Bess background and her relationship to Simon who seems to appear anytime Bess is in dire straits is not familiar to me As a result I found the relationship confusing But even it I understood that aspect of the story I would be hard pressed to believe the whole basis of the book That a war time nursing sister would take in an abused woman in the middle of the night in London was a stretch for me when the woman was a total stranger But I put that aside and said to myself it is Christmas time so therefore cold and dark and deserted and Bess is after all in the humanitarian business so maybe BUT she then forgoes her visit to her worried parents on a holiday leave to travel with this stranger to the home of the woman s abusive spouse And the spouse and his mother and grandmother and sister and brother in law to say nothing of the town s rector and doctor greet this stranger with open arms and reveal all kinds of family secrets seemingly easily was really stretching my ability to acceptWe are speaking upper society here with a son who has supposedly swatted his wife in the face A scandal if ever there was one Nevermind that Bess seems to have some pedigree of her own she is a total stranger This would never happen Needless to say having found this all very difficult to accept the multiple murders and the mystery of who dunnit was really secondary About the only part that rang true for me was Bess experiences in France her meeting the Australian and maybe the nuns and the orphans for whom they were caring Since Charles Todd was lauded prominently on the dust cover as a New York Times Bestselling Author I stuck it out but won t run out to buy another of this authors works any time soon It wasn t horrible but it wasn t gripping either and I found I don t much care what happens to the characters
