Ng World War II I really wasn t satisfied on either countThis novel is primarily romance novel with World War II s the backdrop There were several things I did like bout the book First of ll if you Locked and Loaded (U.S. Marshals, are looking for light romance with some suspenseful nonromantic scenes this book is for you As Past Destinies a romance it is fine though bit predictable The three women protagonists Travels: Collected Writings, 1950-1993 are likeablend easy to root for With the backdrop of the war there If Wishes Were Horses are several well done intense scenes involving the women out in the field which were the best parts of the book for me Ilso really liked the scenes of the nurses tending to emergencies in the hospital The fact that part of the book was set in North Africa was nother plus I had not read much bout that rena of the war On the other hand the facts of the ttack on Pearl Harbor was given very little irtime in this book This disappointed me s I was eager to read bout this milestone event in American history I wanted detail bout what went on in North Africa s well but gain the focus is on the lives of the three protagonists And this may sound picky but there is way too much handholding nd too many tears in this story for me I did however enjoy seeing the women get through some difficult times nd grow in character And I never felt the urge to give up on the book It was good entertainmentI just want to Rainbow Brite: Starlite Saves the Day add if one is interested in the struggles of dedicated nurse A Social History of Modern Art, Volume 2: Art in an Age of Bonapartism, 1800-1815 and young doctor learning on the job during wartime I highly recommend The Winter Soldier by Daniel Mason set in Carpathian Mountains during World War I For wartime romance with depth I suggest Last Christmas in Paris wonderfully heartfelt epistolary written in letters novel by Helen Gaynor nd Heather Webb So mixed bag for me I recommend this novel to those looking for lighter historical fiction romance tale with wartime backdrop Most readers have given this book 5 stars so there is clearly The Unspeakable Mind a greatudience for this one I will say that despite my so so rating I m open to reading from Ms Lane I will just make sure I m in the mood for something lighter I wish to thank Net Galley Lake Union Publishing Publishing UK Time and Philosophy: A History of Continental Thought and Ms Soraya Lane forn ARC of this novel Opinions Murder at Beechwood are minelone nd re not biased in ny way.
