My Dearest Dietrich

My Dearest Dietrich: A Novel of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Lost LoveMy Dearest Dietrich: A Novel of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Lost Love by Amanda Barratt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

No history geek worth his or her salt hasn’t heard of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Including me. I knew the bare bones of his story, but there was a lot I didn’t know. I knew nothing about Maria von Wedemeyer. Now I do!

I’d been looking forward to this story since I first heard that it was going to release. I’ve read several of Amanda Barratt’s historical romance novellas and enjoyed them. This book did not disappoint. Barratt did a great job of putting the flesh on these historical figures. She shows a side of Bonhoeffer that the history books never could.

You don’t have to be a WWII buff, or even that much of a history buff, to enjoy this novel. This story is about the people – not the history. If you know history, then you know the ending, but the getting there is a very good read.

The Regency Brides Collection

The Regency Brides Collection: 7 Romances Set in England during the Early Nineteenth CenturyThe Regency Brides Collection: 7 Romances Set in England during the Early Nineteenth Century by Michelle Griep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a nice collection of stories set during the same time frame, but vastly different in many other ways. I enjoyed the collection, but the stories that really stuck out at me were Amanda Barrett’s “First Comes Marriage” and MaryLu Tyndall’s “The Highwayman’s Bargain.” If you enjoy clean romance reads with engaging characters and a touch of old world charm, you really can’t go wrong with any of these novellas.
