Far Side of the Sea Book Review

In a war-torn country filled with espionage and spies, who do you believe when placing your trust in the wrong person could cost your life?

This is the question British Intelligence Officer, Lieutenant Colin Mabry, must ask himself after he receives a desperate message from France asking him to come at once because of a promise of love.

Set in1918 Europe during World War I, Far Side of the Sea, by Kate Breslin, tells the story of Colin Mabry and Johanna Reyer, a woman who works in a dovecote for the French Army Intelligence. Together, they search for Johanna’s half sister who one year earlier helped save Colin’s life.

With believable characters and historical facts that lend authenticity to Far Side of the Sea without bogging down the reader, I highly recommend this fast paced book full of unexpected twists and turns is a must read for fans of historical romance laced with wartime suspense. The inclusion of messenger pigeons was a plus for me.

Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?

I wish you well.
