Not By Sight by Kate Breslin
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.
Not By Sight is a compelling story that sweeps the reader into a world of intrigue, drama, and romance! I loved the complexity of the characters and their stories; Jack Benningham is an enigmatic hero and Grace Mabry is a charming heroine. Their story, reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast, completely captivated me!
The time period and setting of this story set it apart from most. My knowledge of World War I is very limited, and I was fascinated by the history and events of this time. Filled with secrets, suspense, and surprises, Not By Sight is gripping tale. Kate Breslin writes with a richness and depth that is hard to match, and I believe fans of historical romance and literary fiction will love this beautiful story! I certainly did!
