Remembrance by Theresa Breslin is a story that is set against the huge backdrop of World War I, and yet tells the small story of five young people from a tiny Scottish village. Two families, one of the upper class gentry and the other a family of shopkeepers, but the war makes a huge imprint on both.

Both a coming of age and love story, Remembrance captures the heart wrenching feeling of first love, along with the shattering of courage and dreams that the horror of trench warfare brought to this generation. Although a little simplistic in it’s views, nevertheless this is a well written historical fiction novel on the consequences of war.

"Remembrance" is an interesting book, because it deals with the love of a woman and a man, and the problems of having him away from her. Especially it was harder for them because they were only able to write to each other at that time. Which makes the story really interesting but at the same time sad.
