About the book:

In 1917, Evelyn Marche is just one of many women who has been widowed by the war. A British nurse trapped in German-occupied Brussels, she spends her days working at a hospital and her nights as a waitress in her aunt and uncle's café. Eve also has a carefully guarded secret keeping her in constant danger: She's a spy working for a Belgian resistance group in league with the British Secret Service.
When a British plane crashes in Brussels Park, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to discover she recognizes the badly injured pilot. British RFC Captain Simon Forrester is now a prisoner of war, and Eve knows he could be shot as a spy at any time. She risks her own life to hide him from the Germans, but as the danger mounts and the secrets between them grow, their chance of survival looks grim. And even if they do make it out alive, the truth of what lies between them may be more than any love can overcome.

My Thoughts:

I love historical fiction. It is one of my favorite genre's, mainly because I learn about history as I read a story. I don't know a lot about WWI so I was very interested in this story, and was drawn in right away. Ms. Breslin's vivid writing brought France and Brussels alive, and evoked so many emotions, that I wanted to throw, not toss the book across the room, books that capture my emotions that strongly are why I love reading.  The spy angle of the book was a new one for me and the love story between Evelyn and Simon had all the feels.
I don't want to say too much because I don't want to give Evelyn's story away, you need to get this book and read it!!

I am giving this book my 5.5 star rating, see the quote meme below.

















I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for my opinion, and I was not required to write a positive review.
