What a delightful read! From the moment I saw this book I have been looking forward to reading it and I am so thrilled it didn't disappoint! The lush cover and beautiful description were nothing compare to the actual story! I devoured this book in one evening, it was that good!
This beautiful coming to age story about a young woman during World War 2 is a sweet whisper of a bygone age. Alice-Ann is a memorable heroine who is feisty and strong. One of the things I really appreciated about this character is how the author didn't go on and on about how beautiful she was on the outside, but instead focused on her inward beauty which is a rare thing to find in Christian fiction and is one of my biggest pet peeves.
I loved the character of Cartlon. such a strong, wonderful hero. I loved watching their story grow and develop. It was a sweet subtle love story with more going on which made it much better.
Well written with excellent characters, this book is everything a historical fiction should be! I think the author did a good job at trying to capture the feel of the times which I really appreciated.
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest opinion.
