    Morrison's novel about several Glasgow families during WWII was an interesting read. I loved his characters and really cared about their welfare. There are too many characters to list here, but my favorites were Donald McIntyre, a merchant seaman who joined up and survived the bombing of a merchant fleet in the Arctic, Charlie Burns, who is stranded in Dunkirk during the evacuation of the British Army, Ella McLennan, who braves the bombing of Clydebank to find her daughter and her grandson, and [...]

    Sobering, provocative and satisfying; a great read.I read this book on a cruise vacation this summer, and came away immensely grateful for everything we enjoy in North America in 2012. How quickly we, as a people, forget the searing tragedy of the great wars!Having said that, this is not a book that discusses Generals and battles, but rather a book that reveals the emotions of war. Parents struggle to maintain normalcy for their children; young adults rebel against parental authority and prudenc [...]

    What I like most about this book are the people and the way their lives interconnect. Yes, there's deprivation, and yes, there's tragedy, and yes there's hardship, but there's also warmth and love and an incredible sense of community. And for me the strength of the book is the way the author brings this sense of community to life in such a believable and unsentimental way. His attention to detail is excellent, as is the rich and very credible dialogue. I feel I am there, living and breathing wit [...]

    The social aspects of World War II are told in this story of a community in Glasgow, Scotland, depicting life from just prior to the onset of war in which you get to know the characters very well. There is some of the battles fought at sea, but told from the personal aspect. The main focus is the story of wives, mothers and children whose husbands,sons and fathers have gone to war. How they live in dread of the telegram boy, form strong support for each other regardless of social class. The war [...]

    Beautifully written and well researched, "The Roses of Winter" tells the story of the struggles of several families based in Glasgow during World War II. Because of the shipyards located in Glasgow, the German's make this city a target for heavy bombing. You feel for the residents as bombs blast through their modest tenements destroying lives and homes. There is constant stress and fear, not knowing when or what will be bombed. But it also reenforces camaraderie and resilience in these families. [...]

    Roses Of Winter has vivid descriptions of naval battles along with cities getting bombed into rubble, but its more then just a war story. What really makes Roses Of Winter a great novel is how the characters in the story react to the chaos around them. The characters change during the course of the story and you feel for them. When I read a book I like to bookmark parts that I really enjoy. I bookmarked 20 different scenes in Roses Of Winter that I felt were examples of great writing.For example [...]

    I listened to this as an excellent audio Podiocast read by the author. I loved the added sound effects of the ships and the original war time radio broadcasts. Roses of Winter gave me a deep insight and understanding of the impact of World War II on the Scottish people. I loved the stories and the characters. I admired the honesty and frankness of many of the family discussions. The colloquial slang was entertaining. I was reminded of how much my mother enjoyed living in Scotland with a family w [...]

    I adored this book. I was completely caught up in the lives of the characters. I listened to this, read by the author on iTunes. His wonderful Scottish lilt transported me to war time Glasgow.I was so disappointed when this book ended, especially in what I thought was the middle of the story. So off I went to get the sequel, The Taste of Dust. I will however miss Mr. Morrison's voice carrying me into his world.

    Very nicely done!! The all important aspect of drawing the reader into the story has been achieved by this author. Throughout I felt I was, right there, observing the scenes as they unfolded. The emotions of the characters were well conveyed; the surroundings well described.

    Although war played an important role in this book, it was really a very warm book. Warm because of how all these neighbors took care of each other during a trying time.

    The first chapters of the book were excellent, marred only by too much Scottish dialogue in Scottish dialect which interrupted the flow of reading. The author's mechanics of good writing were fine except for the author giving different fictitious characters the same or similar names. I wonder if the author had a purpose in doing so? There were way too many throw away characters. The descriptions of how the people of Scotland lived and coped with the death and destruction caused by WWII were exce [...]

    This book ended exactly where I wanted it to, and completely ruined it along the way. it turned into an elaborate story of how they mete biggest problem I had was keeping track of who was who. Ella and Ellen. Jim and Jimmie. Alec and Andy, not to mention the other Andy. I didn't realize until near the end that Mary and Bessie, despite their similar stories, had never actually interacted. It was a decent book, but reading accents grates on my nerves, as important as it is to set the atmosphere. A [...]

    It was interesting to read what the daily life was like for families living in Scotland during WWII. The emotional turmoil of a knock on the door. How one deals with the chaos of war.It was hard to keep the story lines clear as there were too many characters with similar names.I did not like the ending.

    The one-star says it all. There was not enough here to grab me and hold me, rather I struggled through pages of Scottish dialogue before saying enough.
