I haven’t read a lot of books of this era, so I was interested in reading this one, as I’ve heard many wonderful things about Breslin in the past.
I haven’t read Not by Sight, and apparently some characters are returning characters from that book. However, the story did still make sense to me. I’m pretty sure this is the only book I’ve ever read that has carrier pigeons as characters 😊 The author taught me a lot about them along the way.
Colin and Johanna and well-developed characters, so it was interesting to follow them. The pace was steady, and the faith message wasn’t overwhelming. Some parts were a bit predictable, but it was still and enjoyable book overall, particularly in relation to the rich details, especially about Paris and Barcelona. I’ve never been to either, but I was able to easily envision things. History, mystery, and romance combine to make this a great book for fans of historical fiction or spy novels.
