Book Review: High as the Heavens, by Kate Breslin

From the Back Cover

A British nurse in WWI German-occupied Brussels, Evelyn Marche spends her days at the hospital and her nights working at a café . . . or so it seems. Eve’s most carefully guarded secret is that she also spends her nights carrying out dangerous missions as a spy for a Belgian resistance group.

When a plane crashes as she’s en route to a rendezvous, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to recognize the badly injured pilot as British RFC Captain Simon Forrester. She risks her life to conceal him from the Germans, but as the secrets between them grow and the danger mounts, can they still hope to make it out of Belgium alive?

My Thoughts
I thought this book was quite good. It is a historical romance set in the WWI era. The story takes place in Europe. The characters are very intriguing and the story moves at a good pace.
I hadn’t read anything by this author before so I didn’t know what to expect. There was just the right balance of romance, suspense, and historical detail to keep me turning the pages.
The only thing that I didn’t really care for was the jump from present to past and back again several times. I thought it was just a little confusing at times.
I would recommend this book if you enjoy historical romance, particularly if you are interested in WWI.
I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Bethany House Publishers provided me with a copy of the book in return for an honest review.
