I wasn’t sure how the author was going to take the “bad boy” of book #2 and make him the hero of book #3 … but she nailed it! What a great end to this trilogy. Two emotionally wounded people who are drawn together against their will only to be torn apart when the unimaginable happens. Plenty of twists and turns and just the right amount of sighs. Highly recommend this one – but read The Deepest Sigh and The Softest Breath first!

Wow. This is the second book in the series. I loved the first, The Deepest Sigh, and this one might even be better. The wonderfully rounded characters are both endearing and flawed. The setting is post-WWI when so many changes were happening both socially and industrially. The hero is charmingly old-school, and the heroine is snappily modern. The tension between them is believable and understandable. I didn’t want to put it down!
This book, as well as The Deepest Sigh, was originally published by Desert Breeze Publishing which has since gone out of business. Author Musch is putting the books back in production independently and is releasing book three, The Brightest Hope, on August 1, 2019. I never really thought I liked books written in this era, but she’s proved me wrong. I’ll be first in line to get my copy!
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.
This book is in the middle of my wheelhouse. I love everything Great Lakes and historical Great Lake settings are my favorites. The added plus is that it takes place during Colonial Times. Yeah. Win-win-win for me.
The author does a superb job of setting this story among the rough-and-tumble world of the French Voyageurs. You’ll feel the strain of the canoe paddle in your hands, the spray of Lake Superior against your face, and the turbulent waves battering your fragile vessel. Truly an experience across the pages.
Don’t miss out on this one!
