Flambards series by K. M Peyton. Flambards: Trilogy is a trilogy about a young orphaned girl who comes to live at her uncle's manor house with her two male cousins. Her uncle and one of her cousins is mad about horses and set in the old ways. Her other cousin hates horses but is fascinated by aeroplanes and becomes one of the first aviators, designing and flying early aeroplanes. He also has more modern ideas about class and other things than his father does. They fall in love & get married and he eventually goes off to war while she stays on the homefront. It's not exactly a romance (SPOILER: there is an HEA, but it's with a different hero), but a love story is at the center of it and is set at the end of the Victorian/Edwardian era England (early 1900s) and goes into WWI. It's about love and friendship and how the world was changing rapidly at the time.

Lauren's Dilemma - Margaret Tanner

Haven't read it, but I just saw it discussed on another thread and it is a WWI romance set in Australia.

Not sure if it's inspirational or not. One reviewer thought it was billed as such, but was disappointed that it was a mainstream romance. Other reviewers don't mention it at all.

Hmm, it's been over a decade since I read it but I believed there was hope at the end of A Very Long Engagement. A truly beautiful book with an amazing heroine (spoiled, bratty, in a wheelchair, determined, loyal and courageous) but yes this isn't a Romance - it's literary fiction/historical mystery.

I read 'song of songs' and utterly loved it... anything like it that is my standard in romantic fiction as it is not eactly a romance as a genre but fiction with Hea I am reading now another books by same author although it is good it is not as good as 'song of songs" still I am enjoying it.

Although I don't usually recommend books by Diana Palmer, Lacy takes place during and after WWI.

Carina Press has a series set in WW1 called "War Girls" by Julie Rowe.
So far there are two books, "Saving the Rifleman" & "Enticing the Spymaster"
I've purchased them but have not read them yet.
Hopefully I'll get to them soon.

I've read Song of Songs a number of times now, but every time I read it, I realise that I just don't like the hero. Don't let that put you off though as it's a really well written book and the descriptions of the war, the hospitals, etc are excellent (if harrowing).

It's not a romance, but if you are interested in WWI, I'd recommend Vera Brittain's memoir "Testament of Youth". She was a young British woman at the outbreak of the war, and was very close to her brother and three of his friends who all went to serve. She ended up as a nurse during the war. Heartbreaking, really, and very well written.
