Retribution

5. Retribution. Old book cover and links removed as the series is in the process of being republished.

As the war enters its final year, the characters reach the end of their journey, but for some the conclusion will be harder to bear than they might have believed.

Joe Price: Still in captivity, Joe wonders if he’ll ever see home again. But, just as he’d imagined his life couldn’t get any worse, he faces losing those he’s come to care for the most.

Peggy Cooper: Following the tragic consequences of her friend’s death, Peggy faces yet more uncertainty, but finds solace where she least expects it and, subsequently a new peace and happiness seem assured.

Louis Servier: Although he knows he must help Richard, Louis also longs to find Brigitte, but he puts duty first and the two men make a desperate and life-threatening attempt to rescue Pam.

Brigitte Fabron: Desperate to escape, Brigitte takes matters into her own hands and finds herself in even greater danger, leaving her wondering whether she was better off with the devil she knew.

Marcel Servier: Feeling guilty after Lilly’s death, Marcel wonders if he should pursue his relationship with Jeanne, or whether he should accept that she is simply part of his past.

Olive Cooper: Between her drinking and her jealousy, Olive is destined to cause trouble for everyone around her, but even she has no idea how tragic the consequences of one simple mistake might be.

Jeanne Coultard: Even though she is now safe in England, Jeanne fears she’ll never be able to relax until she know that Rolf is dead. The question is: will she ever hear that news, or is she destined to live in fear?

Pamela Lloyd-Smythe: Betrayed and captured, Pam is on the verge of death and only a very audacious plan and her own will to survive can help her to escape. However, the cost of such a plan may be too high to bear.

As the characters finally progress towards the conclusion of the war, they discover strengths they didn’t know they had. For some it is the need to see loved ones, but for others, the need for revenge and retribution overpowers everything else.

‘Retribution’ is the fifth and final part of this chronicle, telling the story of several individuals and their families through the Second World War.

Loved both this book and the previous 4 in the series, well written and exciting.
Highly recommended as book 5/5 or as a stand alone novel.
Will a sixth be written?

Good read

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much unpleasant sexual content
By Amazon Customer on 8 November 2017
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would rate this series of books as 5 star but for the continual graphic descriptions of sexual activity. Excellent historical fiction ruined by the constant repetition of unpleasant sexual content. Why do authors feel the need to include such descriptions in their work? Yes, I know it is a part of life and no doubt a lot of such unpleasant sexual activity took place during WWII but there was no need to ram it down our throats so much (no pun intended but there was plenty of that kind of sex!). I shan’t be buying any more of this author’s books.

5th and last book, this author has had me gripped to this story, going from one family to another with the great ability to keep me interested so deeply. The storyline is one that she has written with great compassion, but also with the ability to write a great work of fiction. I would certainly recommend this set of books

The description of the action is powerful and I just want to keep on reading. It is easy to read as the different sections of the chapter just lead on and on and you need to know what is happening to each of the characters.

I’ve waited until I had read all five books in the series before leaving a review.
In each book the story flowed along and was easy to follow.
There are a few cliques which is inevitable with this subject.
Overall a very good storyline with a wealth of believable characters.

Excellent enjoyed all 5 books tremendously, couldn’t put each one down, extremely addictive, wished there was more to follow, will struggle to find anything half as good, AMAZING

5.0 out of 5 stars Read the whole series
By J. McNicol VINE VOICE on 13 July 2016
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For anyone who likes a good fast moving adventure this is an ideal book. For anyone who likes a romantic and sometimes sad story this is an ideal book. With five in the series start at the first and you will be spell bound till the last, the only problem is what do I do now. A war history told in a fast moving way, try it, I do not see how anyone could be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars… the third book of this series and I would recommend them to anyone
By Amazon Customer on 19 June 2016

I am on the third book of this series and I would recommend them to anyone. You get caught up in the different stories of the characters. Also the settings are very authentic. In some books I find descriptions of something goes on for two pages but not here. but you can visualise everyone in your head

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great page turner
By kjhblueon 18 June 2016

Another great book by Carole this leads us to the conclusion of a 5 part story. Great word pictures a real page turner and more realistically not everybody lives happily ever after, though some do. I recommend any reader to purchase Number 1 and work through the books. Carole also has a refreshing way of introducing characters and locations throughout this WWII series. I have become a fan and currently I am reading another of Carole’s novels
