Not by Sight - a review

Not by Sight

Wow! Kate Breslin's book Not By Sight, totally captivated me. From the first page she kept me wanting more.

Grace Mabry is a young woman caught up with modern times. 1917, when women were fighting for the right to vote. Grace rallied around her motto "For King, For Country, For Freedom" in an effort to shame those men who she surmised to be cowards, as her own brother fought on the front lines in WW1. When she hands Jack Benningham a white feather at the costume ball, she doesn't realize the high price he will pay. When she meets Jack again, he is blinded and scarred. This story contains danger, spies, deception and finally finding the true meaning of courage.

This is the first book I've read by Kate Breslin, but she clearly is a gifted author. Her word pictures were vivid and brought the characters to life for me. It was like watching the story unfold in a movie. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction.
This book was sent to me by Bethany House for my review and honest opinion.

I have been too busy sewing to read, been doing audio books instead.

I received my orange winnings in the mail yesterday and could not be more pleased. Fall in my mail. Love it.

Thanks again for your generosity.

Am not a person who reads unless it has something to do with crafts or quilting. You should see my magazine collection. When I'm down in the dumbs I can grab a handful and just look thru them.

Want to THANK YOU for my Christmas in July winnings. Several patterns in your book that have caught my eye!!! Take Care

Sounds like a good book. I like historical fiction (along with light hearted mysteries).

I am not a person that typically reads a book unless it is a cooking book or home decor book but your review has made me interested.

Thank you for sharing this lovely book.
