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.
