    This was a really good romp through four girls lives in pre-war Britain - like a Rosamunde Pilcher, or a good early Maeve Binchy.Quick read, nicely done.

    This book started out promising. I found Poppy's story very intriguing. However, I found the subsequent characters were less interesting. As the story progressed, I became detached and found myself losing interest and not following the story. I finished the book, but didn't get much out of it.

    I had a difficult time deciding on a rating score for this novel. The introduction of characters was sloppy, making it difficult to keep each person clear, sometimes leavīng physical details ūntil well after my picture of an individual had been formed. The story centers on some young women in Great Britain în the days leading up to WWII through Christmas 1940 or 41. The content appeals to me, but the lack of clarity lowered my score.

    Several young women are selected, in the early 1940s, to work in Eden House, for undercover espionate as war is declared in the UK. Exciting, fast paced, presumably accurate in many respects albeit fiction. I didn't find any of the characters particularly sympathetic, but perhaps that's because too many are followed. Still, quite a page-turner - tense, giving insights into undercover life during World War II.

    A lovely read. This book tells the story of 4 young women at the start of WWII in England who all get brought to Eden Park to work in a clandestine unit. Each of them has interesting experiences and meets others like themselves and each undergoes a transformation from the girl she was before. I like Bingham's writing and will read more of her booksis was the first of hers I've read.

    This story follows several people at the start of WII in England. They are recruited to work for a secret agency. I am interested in this time period and I found the book to be an interesting portrayal of recruiting, training and utilizing people from different backgrounds as "secret agents". Good story line, I'd like to see a sequel.

    I enjoyed this book until the end when it seemed to literally lose the plot! There seemed to be suggestions of more sinister goings on which were never explained. It almost was as though a chapter was missing!!!

    A World War book which changes the way people, especially women, lived their lives in Europe and Britain in particular. It brings together four young women from different backgrounds who succeed despite all odds, who are liberated just as their country stands at the brink of a war. Liked the book!

    Kristyh
    The storyline was good, a well constructed spy novel set at the beginning of the Second World War. Potentially interesting characters. Unfortunately completely spoilt by the cliched relationships and the cheesy, cheesy writing and dialogue.

    Lynn
    Starts before ww2, and, brings together a group of people who would not otherwise have met,the storyline, is very good and the description brings out the sense of the time involved, I listened to this on audio book, and so enjoyed it, I've already borrowed the follow up from the lbrary

    Sara
    A little sudsy, but well done.

    Caroline Button
    I love fiction based on this era and found this a compelling story, where I was absorbed in each storyline as it weaved its way to the conclusion.

    Louise
    Enjoyed this might try some more

    Melanie Raye
    loved it!

    Apparently, Daughters of Eden is a trilogy. Unfortunately, the first of its trilogy could not motivate me to hunt for the following two books; unusual since I am quite a war fiction buff.

    Chenice
    I love war-era books and this one has to be my second favourite. The book is beautifully written, with some characters you can really sink your teeth into. Brilliant.

    Dee
    This book took place in pre-WWII and during the war in England.It was about 4 females who ended up working at Eden Park--doing secret gov't work for Britain.

    Shonna Froebel
    Good read, lots of action.WWII spy stuff

    Lianne
