Wow, amazing must read
This amazing story is a wonderful must read. I love time slip novels especially ones that revolve around World War II, and this one written by Siobhan Curham swept me away.
The stunning cover was the first thing that captured my attention to this book. But once I started the story I couldn’t put it down. It is definitely a book you can’t help but to devour it in one sitting. I absolutely loved the story of Ruby and her connection to Joseph. She would do anything to defend him, his character and his namesake. Joseph is seen by people as someone to be suspicious of, but Ruby works with Joseph and sees his bravery and compassion to help others. As the story continues it transports you from 1940 WWII to 2019 in London. Eli purchases a house and finds a mystery beneath a loose floorboard in the attic. Eli discovers the past of a woman that lived in the house in the 1940’s who’s name was Ruby. Eli realizes the secrets from the war lingering in her house and why her decision on what to do next is one of the biggest decisions she will ever make.
The twists and turns of this novel will have you up all night flying through the pages. I was so enthralled that it has surely become one of my favorites. This needs to be a must read at the top of your to be read list. Thank you Siobhan Curham for this phenomenal story, I absolutely loved it.
