Review: In Another Time

Review: In Another Time by Caroline Leech

Love is worth the fight

It’s 1942, and Maisie McCall is in the Scottish Highlands doing her bit for the war effort as a Women’s Timber Corps lumberjill. Maisie relishes her newfound independence and her growing friendships—especially with the enigmatic John Lindsay.

As Maisie and John work side-by-side felling trees, Maisie can’t help but feel like their friendship has the spark of something more to it. And yet every time she gets close to him, John pulls away. It’s not until Maisie rescues John from a terrible logging accident that he begins to open up to her about the truth of his past, and the pain he’s been hiding.

Suddenly everything is more complicated than Maisie expected. And as she helps John untangle his shattered history, she must decide if she’s willing to risk her heart to help heal his. But in a world devastated by war, love might be the only thing left that can begin to heal what’s broken.
-summary and cover via Goodreads

Plot: I had actually never heard of the lumberjills before reading this book! They were really interesting to learn about. And I liked both the romance part of the book, and the part about Maisie's family.

Characters: Maisie was a great main character! I liked John. And I liked a lot of the supporting characters, too!

The cover: It's good!

Overall: This was a really interesting look at a part of history I hadn't read about before! I'm always interested in books set in this time period, and this was a different look at it than usually, which was neat! I liked the romance in this book, and I also liked the epilogue a lot, too! If you're looking for a interesting book set in 1942, then I would recommend trying this one! :)

I received a e-ARC of this book from the publisher.
