Book Review of
Not By Sight
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.
I keep saying that I am not a huge historical fiction reader, but I have read several lately, including this one, that I really enjoyed. This was an easy read. I found the story a bit unrealistic, but I enjoyed learning historical facts that I didn’t know. They are many historical fiction books based on WWII, but not nearly as many on WWI. I enjoyed the fact that this book covered WWI. I enjoyed the author and have added a couple of her other books to my to read pile
