Craig Hill by Kaffir

Author's Description:
Although starting in 1946 the bulk of the story takes place in 1960s England. It has a military background and tells of the joy and vicissitudes of a privileged couple's romance in England and Libya. A box of tissues would be a handy aid to the reader.

This review is written when "Craig Hill" is still unfinished, so changes may yet be made to the review as the story progresses.
"Craig Hill" is a story that starts slowly and builds. Kaffir's knowledge of "the military family" is obviously deep and personal, and he is to be commended on the total accuracy of his locations and situations. There are probably not many of the readers here who would recognise the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) of the early 60s, but Kaffir still does not introduce anything which is out of place or out of time. The events described are a remarkably accurate representation of how things were at the time, and everything I have read so far is totally plausible.
His personalities are well rounded and the reader is easily able to identify with them.
I recommend that readers start this story before it goes too far, so that they are not forced into skimming to "catch up". The story is too good to miss any of the little details by skimming.
