Not By Sight: A Book Review

About The Book:

In the spring of 1917, all of Britain's attention is on the WWI war front and the thousands of young men serving their country on the front lines. 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.

My Review:

Oh goodness. When was the last time you had a historical novel, grip you from the very first pages and draw you into the world of the characters and plot like nothing before. Well that is exactly what will happen when you pick up Not By Sight. What an absolutely AMAZING read. Not By Sight was not just a book to read but an experience. It truly was. Themes such as the Suffragette, love, sorrow, faith in God, were all strong and I loved how the author dealt with each theme. The characters were strong and I adored them all. Seriously, if you have read any of Kate Breslin's previous work you will LOVE this one! If you are new to her work, this will make you a lifelong fan, to be sure.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Not By Sight at your favorite Christian book retailer from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
