This is a quiet, sweet book about courage, loneliness, and love set during the Revolutionary War. Clara is struggling to work her husband’s farm while he’s off at war. One morning her son finds an injured man, Declan, in their carriage house, and her quiet life changes. Clara nurses him back to health and the two slowly develop feelings for each other, despite her marriage. As the British army inches closer to Clara’s door, Declan moves on, never forgetting about Clara. Does the couple have any chance at happiness?
This book is well-written, although sometimes the pacing was a bit uneven. I enjoyed reading about everyday life during the Revolutionary War, an era that I haven’t read much about. The love story was sweet and the connection between Clara and Declan was beautiful to read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kate Rock Book Tours and the author. All opinions are my own.
