Wow. I don’t know what I expected in this book, but I was engrossed from start to finish. The characters didn’t let me go even after I’d shut the book. They are deep, complex, and achingly human with their hopes, dreams, faults, and foibles. Sometimes you don’t know whom to root for. Sometimes you want to slap one of them. Sometimes you want to weep for them. Beautifully written in a style that will appeal to any who enjoy historicals and historical romance. Set during WWI at a very pivotal time in our history, a very satisfying story of people who did their best in a world that was shifting and changing before their very eyes. I highly recommend this one.
Ohhhh! Book two is just as good! Read my review of The Softest Breath.
And book three might be the best of the bunch! The Brightest Hope.
