Grounded Hearts

 
About The Book:  A brave midwife. A wounded pilot. A risky secret.  In the midst of World War II, Ireland has declared herself neutral. Troops found on Irish soil must be reported and interned, no matter which side they are fighting for. When midwife Nan O'Neil finds a wounded young Canadian pilot at her door, she knows she's taking a huge risk by letting him in. Not only is she a widow living alone, but if caught harboring a combatant, she'll face imprisonment.  Still, something compels Nan to take in "flyboy" Dutch Whitney, an RAF pilot whose bomber has just crashed over County Clare. While she tends to his wounds and gives him a secret place of refuge, the two begin to form a mutual affection-and an unbreakable bond.  But Nan has another secret, one that has racked her with guilt since her husband's death and made her question ever loving again. As Nan and Dutch plan his escape, can he help restore her faith?  Learn more and purchase a copy.

My Thoughts On The Book:  I was hooked on this book from the first page. Ms. Dickson masterfully creates her characters  within the confines of the story that takes place during  war torn Ireland during WW II. I really enjoyed  the strong female roles. The midwife, the doctor, and the female mechanic were all capable of taking care of themselves and others their community.  Although Nan was a Christian and you knew it, it was not overwhelming.  I love WWII romance novels and this one was solidly done.  It was a great summer beach read for sure.  Loved it!
