Book Review

This is my book review for 'High as the Heavens' by Kate Breslin

This book is set in WWI.  One of my grandfathers served in WWI (he also served during WWII), so, I'm always interested in the human side of these wars.  There are lots of details in this book, and, the author makes her heroine, Kate,  a composite of several real life WWI heroines. 

The novel is set in war torn Belgium.  It weaves Kate's current life, with her past life.  It shows how one person can make a difference, be it a tiny difference, or a large difference, in many lives.  Past actions affect current outcomes. 

I enjoyed this book.  I was given this book, in exchange for my honest review. 


  1. My Grandpa was in WW1 also. My Grandma, not yet married to him, wrote to him the whole time he was gone. They got married when he got home.
    Sounds like I book I should look up. Thanks for the review.

  2. I loved this book. Kate Breslin sure can make history so interesting.

  3. I do like historical fiction ... or even embellished fill-in-the-blanks history.
    Funny, because when I studied history it was all about memorising dates and events which I hated.
