I‘m not even sure where to start. I guess, first off WWII fiction isn‘t my jam so that was the first strike against for me. Second, the 3 main female characters are interesting on their own but there isn‘t enough space to develop them together. Lastly, the style is choppy. I get where the transitions are supposed to be more theatrical but they don‘t work well as written.

We get it, you‘re a tits man. But please don‘t mix metaphors: cake, sunsets, acorns it‘s all just too much cringe. “Though her nipples were the icing on his fantasy cake. They were the color of a pink sunset the day after a furious storm, and looked to be hard as an acorn right now. He reached to palm one, then the other until she squirmed and quivered, lifting her hand to cover his. He loved nipples better than anything on a woman, hands down.”

Not quite what I was expecting from the description I was expecting a romance in the style of Good Night Sweetheart where there was actually some difficulty choosing between lovers and between times but this was not that at all.

Also what are we supposed to think of men? It felt like every other man was a rapist. There is rape, attempted rape and then male rape just to top things off and then throw in a side of torture just for fun.

majkia I hated that book and refuse to read the rest of the series. 8h

This was a good book. Virginia and Jonathan had many troubles and started their marriage off rough. Adopting a friends child and making her their own then having their own child to take care of. Almost lost their farm. But thankful for Grandmother Withers their farm was saved. If you like books that are about old fashion times this is a great book for you.

DanaManiac I loved the Love Comes Softly series ❤️ 2h

This was well written and I did like reading a book about the Channel Islands but it seemed like not much happened. 🤷‍♀️
