  • WWII and Sisterhood

    A house on an island has brought the mystery of who lived there during WWII together with the present day. As Natalie and her sister, Alex, work to remodel a house they find many hidden treasures and turn to the island’s residents to decipher them. As Natalie and Alex work towards their future, solve some of the mysteries of the past, they must also come to understand what their own histories mean for themselves and be able to accept it. Juliet Blackwell tells a story that pulled me in, kept me reading, and had me invested in Natalie, Alex and Violette. I love the flashbacks to WWII just as much as I love the sisterhood between Alex and Natalie. Their stories intertwine and come together perfectly telling a beautiful and enchanting story of family, friendship, and acceptance.

  • Historical Fiction Fan will love this book

    Sisters meeting on an isolated island off the coast of Brittany after not seeing each other for ten years is where we meet Alex and Natalie. Alex arrived unannounced and didn't tell her sister why. Natalie was restoring a beautiful home but had to stop because her boyfriend returned to France and wasn’t planning to come back. Natalie is also an author of a popular book about this island and her love life which is now non-existent. She has to worry about the next book which was to be focused on the romance between her and Francois-Xavier. Both sisters had secrets which they finally shared with each other. While exploring the house, they found a hidden space in the attic that held an old cookbook, costumes, and beautifully embroidered linens. Why were these things hidden? We then travel back to the island during WWII and meet the women left to fend for themselves after all the men had gone off to war. The women weren't alone for long, though, because the Germans invaded the island, lived in their homes, took their food, and gave orders. The characters will steal your heart and make you want to immediately book a plane to this island to soak up its quaintness. As you begin to love the characters and the island, the two stories blend together through the cookbook that holds the secrets to the island's past.. A hundred-year-old resident also helped to reveal secrets. Ms. Blackwell’s writing pulls you in and puts you right into the story line to enjoy what the characters are enjoying and what they are suffering through. You may even learn some French and learn about French cooking and cooking terms. If you are a fan of WWII, authors, lovely, isolated islands, hidden spaces, long-kept secrets, and Ms. Blackwell’s books, do not miss OFF THE WILD COAST OF BRITTANY. 4/5 This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
