We love a good book here at the Cottage and are always excited when we have a chance to get a pre-release copy of our favorite author’s newest work. We were recently given the opportunity to review the latest book by the amazing Kate Breslin ‘Far Side of the Sea’. Kate is a master storyteller and this book is a great representation of her art. This is the second book in the series. The first being ‘High as the Heavens‘ but will work wonderfully as a stand-alone book.
Far Side Of The Sea
Far Side of the Sea is set in 1918 in England. The first World War is raging and the bombing is fierce, not just in some far away field but in small country farms, neighborhoods and large towns. Paris is being destroyed, the innocent killed.
Enter Lt. Colin Mabry. After suffering terrible injury and losing his hand in the war he is lucky to be able to even still be in the military but his future brother-in-law secures his position in MI8 doing decoding of messages that come into the facility via carrier pigeon. One day he receives just such a message but it is from Jewel the lady that saved his life in France not long ago that he had presumed dead and she is asking him for help. What follows is a wonderful tale of military intelligence, murder, drama, spies, and the spark of hope in all the darkness.
This is a really beautiful story that keeps you guessing.
We really recommend it.
