About the Author
Jennie Marsland is a teacher, a painter, a musician and, for most of her life, a writer. She fell in love with words at a very early age and the affair has been life-long. She enjoys writing songs and poetry as well as fiction. Jennie is a history buff as well as an unashamed romantic. Glimpses of the past spark her imagination, and she believes in happily ever after. A resident of Halifax, Nova Scotia for the last thirty years, she lives with her husband Everett and their outrageously spoiled Duck-Tolling Retrievers, Chance and Echo.

Luckily, for her, Ben MacNeil aka Carl from the previous book "Shattered" is there to help. He doesn't have anything of value in his current state (arrested for drunken disorderly conduct on a train) but he values her.
These two are burned out by their experiences in the war. Despite their injuries they reach out to each other. Together, they find forgiveness and redemption of sins.
Carl isn't just a drunk soldier with a tortured past - with Naomi's help he's now in recovery and has something of value in his life. A first for this quick tempered character but something I'm relieved to see.
Two broken birds of war find peace with each other and a love that heals wounds.
I enjoyed the writing style immensely and felt like I was a part of their healing process. Great to see Carl again!
Carl is on the run. He's AWOL and has no intention of going back, since he knows he cannot go overseas again. He tells Naomi his name is Ben, along with numerous other lies, and the guilt is eating him alive. Carl fights his growing attraction to Naomi, but neither of them can resist it. After telling Naomi all his secrets, they share a passion-filled night, but Carl leaves the next morning, because he doesn't feel he is the right man for Naomi.
The rest of the story tells how they overcome their demons to find their way back to each other. I loved this story. From the prairies of western Canada to the east coast of Nova Scotia, this author paints a vivid picture of life during these troubled times. I highly recommend this great book, which is truly a story of Carl's deliverance.
This is the sequel of Ms. Marsland SHATTERED which I loved very much!She really was able to describe the reality of the people's lives during the 1914-18 war, like the fact, that some soldiers came back from the war as wounded men morally and physically. Even nurses have dealt with the soldiers's suffering. I loved her two main characters Carl O'Neill and Naomi Franklin. They both had secrets that were part of their lives and weren't willing and ready to share. As their friendship grew, they will share a mutual trust and slowly fall in love! I like the style of writing of Ms. Marsland's realistic world of WW1. This is the second book that I read by this author and again, I was not disappointed. As soon as I started to read the first chapter, her story got me hooked and I could not put it down. Ms. Marsland is a great writer to be known. I will definitely be reading more books by this author. I highly recommend this book because it's a beautiful historical romance.
