Oh, how I loved this story! The author does a wonderful job of evoking the feel of WWI warfare - young men enlisting with dreams of glory and adventure and ending up in muddy trenches awaiting German bombs or mustard gas. The plot is tightly constructed, with Devon staying on a cottage on a WWI battlefield, writing his thesis on the battle where the entire 44th Battalion was killed. WWI soldier Stanley is hurled into the present while in the midst of a suicide mission to save the battalion.
Jackie North's writing brings to life the realities of war and she hits on the all the small details that give the plot richness and depth. And the same holds true with the romance between Devon and Stanley. It's emotional and tender and really touches the heart. I can't say enough about this M/M historical romance, other than I give it 5+ stars and highly recommend it!
