Far Side of the Sea

Far Side of the Sea by Kate Breslin is by far the best historical fiction I've read this year. I loved this  World War I story and the beautiful way Ms. Breslin wrapped romance and mystery around the tale.

Lieutenant Colin Mabry has made a promise, and he is set on fulfilling it. When he receives a message by carrier pigeon from the woman who saved his life, he sets out to find the girl he left behind and bring her back to England. Who he finds in Paris is Jewel Reyer's half sister Johanna. After finding Jewel's diary, Johanna is convinced she is alive and equally seeks to find her sister. And will not be dissuaded otherwise.

I loved this story of espionage and adventure. Kate Breslin weaves such a beautiful romance in the midst of suspicion and trust. The historical element was equally fascinating. I would give this a 5+ rating.

 I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
