Book Review: Not by Sight


Not by Sight  
Kate Breslin

In the spring of 1917, all of Britain's attention is on the WW1 war front and the thousands of young men serving their country on the front lies.  Jack Benningham, dashing heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, is young and able-bodied but refuses to enlist despite the contempt of his peers.
A wealthy young suffragette, Grace Mabry will do anything to assist her country's cause.  Men like Jack infuriate her when she thinks of her own brother fighting in the trenches of France so she has no reservations about handing him a white feather of cowardice at a posh masquerade ball.
But Grace could not anticipate the danger and betrayal set into motion by her actions and soon she and Jack are forced to learn the true meaning of courage when the war raging overseas suddenly strikes much closer to home and their fervent beliefs become a matter of life and death.

"Not by Sight will sweep you away... Kate Breslin brings us another story that will touch our hears and lift our spirits."  - award winning author of Surrendered Hearts and A Refuge at Highland Hall   - Carrie Turansky

Kate Breslin: A Florida girl who migrated to the Pacific Northwest, she is a former bookseller and the author of For Such a Time, a Christy Award finalist and RITA double finalist.  She lives with her family near Seattle, Washington.

My thoughts - I love a good romance story, something I might have mentioned once or twice on this blog. They're especially great when they're historical which Not by Sight is. I love the struggle that both of the main characters, Jack and Grace face, focused around WW1 something that was especially prevalent in the UK. If you like Only with Blood or The Heretic this is a book to check out.
