Gripping Sophomore Novel from a Rising Historical Romance Talent
With Britain caught up in WWI, Jack Benningham, heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, has declared himself a conscientious objector. Instead, he secretly works for the Crown by tracking down German spies on British soil, his wild reputation and society status serving as a foolproof cover.
Blinded by patriotism and concern for her brother on the front lines, wealthy suffragette Grace Mabry will do whatever it takes to assist her country's cause. When she sneaks into a posh London masquerade ball to hand out white feathers of cowardice, she never imagines the chain of events she'll set off when she hands a feather to Jack.
And neither of them could anticipate the extent of the danger and betrayal that follows them--or the faith they'll need to maintain hope.
This book is some of the best historical fiction I have read thus this year. I loved the story and the twists and turns in the story, even though a few things were very obvious about what was going to happen, it still had some twists and turns that you don't see coming. The plot was good, the characters showed growth and a new depth as the story progresses and each showed a very different personality and voice. Each character had a different part to play, so even though there are quite a few people in the story, its not really crowded and each side character has there time to share there story too. Over all I really liked this book and felt like it was well executed and well thought out.
I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
