Hello everyone! This month has not been normal for me posting wise! But don't lose heart, I do have posts coming your way!
Today I have a book review for you with Jesseca Wheaton's blog tour! So without further ado, let's jump in!
About the book:
A Man. A Brother. A Traitor.
The war has taken everything Micah Wilson has ever held dear, and with all his being he wishes he could do something to stop the heartache. But he often wonders if he'll ever be able to move on after the war, or forget the brother who left six years before. How can God still have a plan when it seems that the world around him is falling to pieces, to say nothing of his own heart?
Ann Sullivan has seen two brothers changed by the war. And she's resolved to do something to stop the pain she sees in their eyes from becoming a reality for so many others. The world is on the brink of Normandy when her nursing unit is shipped to England and, while there, an unexpected encounter promises to change her own life . . . forever. But it's only the beginning. As the war in Europe rages on, Ann is caught in the crossfires. And when the unthinkable happens, she comes face to face with the evil of the Third Reich. Is it possible that the reality of it all is more deadly than even her worst nightmares?
Erich Essler never questioned his duty to his country. All his life he's struggled to live up to his father's expectations, and bring honor to the Essler name. But when the man he thought of as his only friend turns out to be the enemy, he can no longer rid himself of the questions that continue to torment him. Is what he's doing really honorable? And does he owe his loyalty to his country . . . or a higher power?
Freedom for Europe dawns on the distant horizon. But in the midst of the fight, four lives will be forever changed, and their loyalty to God and Country brought into question.
This book is the 3rd in a series called "The Questions of War" series. I had read and enjoyed the first two and jumped at the chance to review the 3rd book!
I was a little disappointed with this one...I didn't know there was going to be romance in this one. I know, you've heard that song before, lol! But it's the truth. The first one was extremely mild in that respect, the second one a little more, but it wasn't too bad, because the couple was very mature and not all lovey-dovey. Book three wasn't immoral or anything like that, just not my cup of tea in that respect.There were a couple things that were a little uncomfortable for me, but true to the time period. Because of that, I would say this book is more for a 16+ audience.
That being said. WOW! This book was action packed and definitely takes you away to WWII! I loved the medical details and the espionage was neat too! Micah and Erich, that's all I'm saying, lol! They were so good! Hands down my favorite characters...also the only ones who can make me cry...
I missed the home front side of the story from book 2, but I'm biased (looking at you, Rafe and Lily!) I'm not sure what the author has planned for this series, but I'm rooting for a 4th book with Art, The Wilson Boys and RAFE! Okay, sorry, this character has my heart, y'all. I mean, I started out not liking him, but by the end of book two I was like, give me more please!
The writing was very well done. I love the author's style and seeing the growth from book 1 to now has been a treat! Very visual.
I received an arc copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thought, comments and opinions are my own.*
And there is a giveaway!
