Book Review of Far Side of the Sea by Kate Breslin!

Far Side of the Sea

About: In spring 1918, Lieutenant Colin Mabry, a British soldier working with MI8 after suffering injuries on the front, receives a message by carrier pigeon. It is from Jewel Reyer, the woman he once loved and who saved his life—a woman he believed to be dead. Traveling to France to answer her urgent summons, he desperately hopes this mission will ease his guilt and restore the courage he lost on the battlefield.

Colin is stunned, however, to discover the message came from Jewel’s half sister, Johanna. Johanna, who works at a dovecote for French Army Intelligence, found Jewel’s diary and believes her sister is alive in the custody of a German agent. With spies everywhere, Colin is skeptical of Johanna, but as they travel across France and Spain, a tentative trust begins to grow between them.

When their pursuit leads them straight into the midst of a treacherous plot, danger and deception turn their search for answers into a battle for their lives

My Review:

Genre: Historical, WWI, romance, Christian fiction.

My Rating: 5 stars.

My Recommendation: 13 up for romance.

My Favorite Character/s: Huh, hard to say, I guess it should be No or Colin but it isn’t . . . My favorite is Marcus, who though not in the book much I loved his character and the spying was so cool! I don’t know but the little we get to see if Marcus is quite intriguing and it’s interesting to see how way of working with love sick men who’ve made a mistake with their words or actions.

My Verse for Marcus is 2 Timothy 2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

My Thoughts: I am in love! My second novel by the author in a day and man, are they wonderful! AS I is a favorite time period of mine and I’m always on the look out for books about AS I but they are hard to find unlike WWII. Anyway, this story was so incredibly fantastic, Colin, wounded warrior though that’s not the term used then and Jo, all alone and searching for her family. It’s a sad and romantic book with a an who honors Christ while breaking free of his past.

Warnings: Mentions of a child born out of wedlock, a character is shot and another character is drugged.

I received a copy of this book inn exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it.
