It’s got everything a story of love during a time of war needs for its readers to be swept away, and the Irish setting is fresh, new, and memorable. You haven’t heard this WWII story yet, and you’re going to want to!” —Susan Meissner, author of A Bridge Across the Ocean
“Grounded Hearts by Jeanne Dickson is a romantic and compelling tale. The details on wartime life in neutral Ireland are fascinating, and the village is filled with a charmingly humorous populace. Dutch and Nan are appealing characters with depth, and their relationship sizzles as they both find healing. Exciting, romantic, funny…Don’t miss Grounded Hearts! I loved this book.” —Sarah Sundin, author of the Waves of Freedom
