The Brightest Hope

The Brightest Hope (Echoes of the Heart, #3)The Brightest Hope by Naomi Dawn Musch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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!

The Deepest Sigh

The Deepest Sigh (Echoes of the Heart Book 1)The Deepest Sigh by Naomi Dawn Musch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

Among the Poppies

Among the PoppiesAmong the Poppies by J’nell Ciesielski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An extraordinary tale of heroism and sacrifice set during The Great War. Gwyn Ruthers is an ambitious young woman determined to take an active part in the war. When she learns that women are being trained to drive ambulances … she’s ready to sign up! Captain William Crawford is following in his father’s footsteps, leading men into battle. He has no business taking an interest in a woman when his life hangs in the balance with every battle, but he can’t keep the young woman auto mechanic out of his thoughts. When she shows up on the battlefield in France, he’d do anything in his power to keep her safe … if only she’d let him.

Well written, beautifully described, and emotionally charged, this book is one you can’t put down. You’ll feel the earth shake under your feet, smell the mud clinging to every boot, and taste the fear that’s never far from the scene of a battle. A must-read novel for anyone who enjoys a story steeped in true historical details behind strong, engaging characters.
