Not By Sight by Kate Breslin Book #Review

Gripping Sophomore Novel from a Rising Historical Romance Talent

With Britain caught up in WWI, Jack Benningham, heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, has declared himself a conscientious objector. Instead, he secretly works for the Crown by tracking down German spies on British soil, his wild reputation and society status serving as a foolproof cover. Blinded by patriotism and concern for her brother on the front lines, wealthy suffragette Grace Mabry will do whatever it takes to assist her country's cause. When she sneaks into a posh London masquerade ball to hand out white feathers of cowardice, she never imagines the chain of events she'll set off when she hands a feather to Jack. 
And neither of them could anticipate the extent of the danger and betrayal that follows them--or the faith they'll need to maintain hope.

MY THOUGHTS-This latest book by Kate Breslin is definitely a page turner. Draws you into the plot from the opening pages and keeps the reader enthralled til the very end. The characters are so very real and you feel the emotions as you take the journey with them. Jack is quite the wild dashing hero who has troubles of his own, without contending with suffragette Grace. Boy is she a hoot! Not afraid of anything and willing to take on the world, whether it be handing a coward the white feather, or breaking her back digging ditches, all she wants is for the war to end and her brother to come home. You feel the emotions of Jack who wants to be the hero working for the Crown and yet his disability cripples him to a degree where he ends up needing the help of the very woman who gave him the white feather. I don't want to give it all away but this is an amazing book. Great history lessons throughout!
