An Island at War by Deborah Carr HarperCollins UK, One More Chapter One More Chapter

 Lovers of historical fiction are sure to enjoy this moving wartime story set on the beautiful Channel Islands. The resilient and likeable heroine, tension-filled plot and exotic setting all make this a great read.

The story begins dramatically when Estelle's father is killed by Germans at the dock. Estelle has to deal with the death of her father and her beloved little sister being away in England suffering in the Blitz, with only the help of her grandmother. Not only this, but her boyfriend becomes a POW. Now she and her grandmother are forced to live with a German Captain at their farm. Unfortunately, this young and handsome German can be quite chivalrous, and Estelle can't help feeling attracted to him as wartime restrictions grow ever harder and tighter...

This was an excellent novel, although I am a bit tired of reading about women having feelings for men on the enemy side, and I look forward to reading more of Deborah Carr's novels.

I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
