Gerry B’s Book Reviews. I usually don’t care for historicals so I really wasn’t sure how I’d like this but it was just fantastic. Returning home from the war after being buried alive in a trench that left some of his men dead and himself a cripple with multiple broken bones, he is now a recluse who drinks to forget, paints the demons that plague him and lives in a world that is full of shadows and bomds.

Whilst this isn’t the focus of the book, the ideals of the era still manage to permeate the setting which helped to ground it in the period. The pacing also picks up. God, this book was just so good.

One has a body terribly messed up by the war; the other still has a perfect, gorgeous body. Before they could give or receive love, the two had to learn how to handle what they saw and experienced in Europe.
New York State United States. I’m in love with both the writing and character development. Believe me, this one is astonishing.
Overarching both these worlds is the very real guilt of having survived…of having managed to live one more day when so many others did not. Oh, dear reader do not walk, but instead run to purchase this book.
The romance is also a nice slow burn, and a good choice for anyone looking for an enemies-to-lovers book since the MCs have little regard for each other at first or for a slow, developing romance.
Chevalier No preview available – The emotions of these two men, with their traumatic pasts, isolated by their fears and desires, are clear and poignant but understated.
The other is overdosing on meaningless contact with other human beings. Oct 27, Julio Genao rated it it was ok. Mar 31, Ulysses Dietz rated it really liked it.
She never forgets what should be every novelist’s cardinal rule: But this smashed every idea I might have had about my previous tries and made me cry and laugh and swoon like a ridiculous person.
