Far Side of the Sea Reviews
Another great read about WW1. While technically a sequel, it can be read as a stand-alone.
Far Side of the Sea was a breathtaking journey back to WWI! The author definitely made me feel as if I was right in the middle of the action, cowering as the bombs dropped in Paris, journeying across the countryside in an effort to determine who was friend and who was foe, and juggling the intricacies of espionage.
I really liked the main characters. Colin Mabry was such a fabulous hero, overcoming his injury, yet still carrying uncertainty about how others viewed him. He also struggled with some ...more
What a treat to read another Kate Breslin book! I've really struggled this year to read any ebooks, but this one was a quick and absorbing read and kept me flipping pages despite that difficulty. While there isn't a lot about faith, it's clear they are steadied by their belief in God.
The twists and turns in the plot left me reeling. We met Colin in Not by Sight very briefly, but this book stands alone. I loved seeing more of Marcus in this one! Colin is an interesting young man from the very beg ...more
Kate Breslin continues her tradition of writing sweeping historical romances that pair the adventurous spirit of Kate Quinn with the painstaking historical detail of Susan Meissner and Hazel Gaynor. A universe in itself, The Far Side of the Sea sweeps the reader to dashing European locales seen through the eyes of two unforgettable characters whose greatest daring lie in finding restoration and wholeness against the broken backdrop of a world at war. The thinking person’s advent ...more
Far Side of the Sea by Kate Breslin is a fantastic, well researched story set in World War I.
This was a real joy to read. My favorite kind of historical novel is about the World Wars and behind-the-scenes spy craft. This book captured me with the first chapter and the subject of carrier pigeons and coding messages. From England, to romantic Paris, to beautiful Toulouse and sumptuous Barcelona, the scenery Ms. Breslin depicts puts you right there among the constantly changing intrigue. It was fas ...more
Kate Breslin continues to excel in writing outstanding historical fiction. Her beautiful prose draws the reader into a world that is torn apart by the hardships of WWI. Though her main characters have suffered both physical and emotional injury, Breslin gives us a courageous hero and spunky heroine. Lieutenant Colin Mabry is healing from injuries he received on the Front. After receiving a mysterious message, he returns to France to aid a young woman he once cared for. To his surprise, he finds ...more
This is a beautifully written story about a WW1 hero who lost his arm in the war and his beautiful and brave heroine searching for her father and sister. She enlisted his help to find them and crossed over several countries and encountered spies and clandestine meetings in their search. But the most amazing thing they found was love. This is an amazing book that kept me turning the pages. I loved every bit of this story.
