Since my first review of this year was well received, I thought I’d share another review with you.
I had read an earlier book by this author and enjoyed it, so when Jesseca contacted me about editing it for her, I was more than happy to. Even in it’s unfinished stage, I was moved, I saw great potential and looked forward to reading the finished book. And now that it’s published, I wanted to share it with my readers.
A man. A child. A war.
When German soldiers invade France during World War II, young Joyanna’s perfect world is shattered. In the hands of those who hate her, she battles to comprehend why people can be so ruthless and cold toward those whom they have never met.
David Sullivan, pilot in the Royal Air Force, was certain he would never hate, but a painful loss forces him to either reconsider or do the inconceivable—forgive. He is suddenly challenged by the realization that doing God’s will is not easy, but most important. With the lives of freedom-fighters relying on him, he must learn the difficult lesson that he is not in control, but merely one who must surrender his heart of obedience to One greater.
A sudden turn of events lands Joyanna and David in the same country—but for far different reasons. When their paths cross, David finds he must make a decision that will affect them both for the rest of their lives.
Will he chose vengeance, or will he let his life be ruled by a higher standard? A standard of Honor.

This story pulled me in right at the beginning and kept my interest. The characters were real with real struggles. They made me laugh, and I was barely able to keep back the tears at times as I read. While most WWII books happen after America has already entered the war, this one takes place during the Battle for Britain. Jesseca has a good grasp on writing and she was able to make her story come alive. I’m already looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
