The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy

My favorite book I have reviewed for Luxury Reading is The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy. Her writing is just so vivid and eloquent that you can’t help but admire the beauty surrounding the main characters while also feeling their heartache and fear. The contrast between the winsomeness of the island and the ugliness of the German world that encroaches on the islander’s serenity helps highlight the audacity of war. And its historical fiction, which I can’t get enough of!
