Review: High As the Heavens by Kate Breslin

About the book:
A British nurse in WWI German-occupied Brussels, Evelyn Marche spends her days at the hospital and her nights working at a café . . . or so it seems. Eve's most carefully guarded secret is that she also spends her nights carrying out dangerous missions as a spy for a Belgian resistance group.

When a plane crashes as she's en route to a rendezvous, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to recognize the badly injured pilot as British RFC Captain Simon Forrester. She risks her life to conceal him from the Germans, but as the secrets between them grow and the danger mounts, can they still hope to make it out of Belgium alive?

My thoughts:

High as the Heavens was a captivating novel set during WWI. I found myself drawn into the story relatively quickly and it got to where I did not want to put the book down (seriously, I kept picking it back up to read every chance I could find). :)

At first I wasn't sure what I thought about the story when it switched from present to past events; but, after thinking about it some more, I realized that it actually helped me understand the backstory better and I now love the way that was written. 

The romance was lovely and I felt for the characters so much. They went through a lot and I was hoping things would work out for them in the end.

All in all, while High As the Heavens is my first read by Kate Breslin, I definitely plan on reading more of her stories now. I highly recommend this book!
