The Mapping of Love and Death - Jacqueline Winspear I keep waiting for this series to get stale, but it hasn't so far. I enjoy the research Winspear does into the fall-out of WWI and the way she incorporates that. The romantic angle of the stories has tended to be pretty predictable and is my least favorite part of the series (except for the first romance, which was a heart-breaking example of what so many women went through during that and every war). This book brought in a little about what mapmakers and surveyors did during the war.
