The Moon Looked Down: Book Review & Giveaway
The new Americana romance from bestselling author Dorothy Garlock, this time set against the backdrop of WWII. Sophie Heller's family immigrated from Germany to Victory, a small town in Illinois, before WWII began. Now that the war has affected the town, the townspeople discriminate against Sophie and her family.
When a train derails, it is an accident but the Heller family is blamed. Coming to Sophie's rescue is a teacher from the high school, and despite their cultural differences, a romance starts to bloom.
About The Author:
Dorothy Garlock is the author of over 50 novels that have sold over 15 million copies and are published in 15 languages. She lives in Iowa.
If you like historical fiction and romance, you will really enjoy The Moon Looked Down. The characters are all very well developed and the book is very easy to read and the descriptions of scenery and characters are very well written as well. The book explores themes such as romance, forgiveness, courage and hatred. Though a relatively small book, only 340 pages, it packs a huge punch! There is some foul language, so that was a bit of a turn off for me, but for the most part this was a very good book.
