At the height of the London Blitz, Viola Craft, a sexually repressed young woman is trapped in a loveless marriage to her God fearing husband Vernon. She spends her days working in her mother’s dress shop while Vernon pulls the dead from the rubble with his rescue crew. Their marriage is turbulent and Viola feels pressured to bear a child. After failed attempts, Vernon believes she’s barren and alienates himself from their marriage. One night during an air raid, she meets alluring German born Kristoff Richter. They make an instant connection. He’s young, good looking and emphatic. They embark on an illicit affair that leads to tragic consequences.


This story left me with bittersweet thoughts. Viola to me suffered too much to only get a piece of happiness. Yes, she does get a man that loves her but not the soulmate she deserves. After all she goes through to survive and maintain a sane mind; she needed a great outcome to her life.
Her husband and mother don’t respect her emotions or body. They only see what they can get from her and nothing more. That leaves you wondering why she stayed so long and suffered in silence. Even though it’s the 1930’s I still felt she had choices, she just feared truly being happy. And by the time she has no choice but to change her world; happiness is ripped away from her.
Some will say this story ends with an HEA, to me it’s more of an Okay Ever After. I understand not every book will have an HEA but Viola DESERVED one.
Now, did I like this story? Yes.
What I didn’t like is the ending. I kept hoping and praying her Soul mate would come back to her.
Even with my feeling hurt, this is a 5 star read. You won’t be disappointed!
