The September choice for the Realm of Books was “My Dear, I wanted to tell you” by Louisa Young. Many of us thought that although it had a slow start, once we got into it we found it an excellent novel. Much of it was based on factual evidence about Major Gillies, a plastic surgeon, who treated men with horrific facial injuries during WWI. The subject matter, although horribly graphic, was brilliantly described but the story covered so much more. There was a love story running through it and issues about class and family disfunction and how both men and women were affected by war. All the characters were interestingly and realistically portrayed.
