Not by Sight
by: Kate Breslin
With Britain caught up in WWI, Jack Benningham, heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, has declared himself a conscientious objector. Instead, he secretly works for the Crown by tracking down German spies on British soil, his wild reputation and society status serving as a foolproof cover.
Blinded by patriotism and concern for her brother on the front lines, wealthy suffragette Grace Mabry will do whatever it takes to assist her country’s cause. When she sneaks into a posh London masquerade ball to hand out white feathers of cowardice, she never imagines the chain of events she’ll set off when she hands a feather to Jack.
And neither of them could anticipate the extent of the danger and betrayal that follows them–or the faith they’ll need to maintain hope
Kate Breslin’s newest book Not by Sight released yesterday, August 4th. This was the first book by this author that I have ever read and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The story was based off some true events and groups, which I love. The characters were fun and believable and people that I would have considered appropriate to that time and place.
The camaraderie between the characters was real. I could literally see in my minds eyes the places and character’s come to life. Mrs. Breslin has that gift and she did her research very well. I will have to go back and read her first historical novel now.
This is one I recommend you pick up for your library.
