About the Book
Artist Alison Schuyler spends her time working in her family’s renowned art gallery, determined to avoid the curse that has followed the Schuyler clan from the Netherlands to America and back again. She’s certain that true love will only lead to tragedy—that is, until a chance meeting at Waterloo station brings Ian Devlin into her life. Drawn to the bold and compassionate British Army captain, Alison begins to question her fear of love as World War II breaks out, separating the two and drawing each into their own battles. While Ian fights for freedom on the battlefield, Alison works with the Dutch Underground to find a safe haven for Jewish children and priceless pieces of art alike. But safety is a luxury war does not allow. As time, war, and human will struggle to keep them apart, will Alison and Ian have the faith to fight for their love, or is it their fate to be separated forever? (Goodreads)
I love the cover of this book, it really draws the reader in from the start. The first few chapters I really got into trying to figure out the story and where it was going to go. The characters didn't click with me right away but grew on me slowly. The romance was a little "silly" for me, love at first sight stuff and some of the dialogue seemed a bit drawn out. This is a pretty long book and I felt like the story seemed really long. I love historical fiction and I loved the setting and time in this storyline. The book didn't grab me and it was a bit difficult for me to get through at times, which I wish wasn't the case! I would definitely read more by this author, this just wasn't my all time favorite.
Four stars-it's still a good one guys!
