Wow what an incredible story of love during hardship. I learned so much about
Halifax & the devastating explosion of 1917. This is the first book of Genevieve's that I've read, but it won't be my last.

Canadian History Told in Fiction Well-written, well researched, very moving.

Danny Baker of Jeddore NS goes off to France as a Canadian solider during WW 1 and meets artist Audrey Poulin. They fall in love at first sight. Their letters become their link to the rest of their lives through many tragedies and struggles.

The Halifax Explosion in Dec 1917 is a turning point in both of their lives as well as rocking Canadians into a new aspect of war.

Danny & Audrey's story continues in Come From Away.

This emotionally intense novel tells the tale of how Daniel, a Canadian solider and Aubrey, a French country girl fell in love during the midst of war and resiliently continued to fight for their love after the battles on the Front ceased. They return to Canada, trying to adjust to life after war and injury but continue to be thrown through the perfect storm of disasters. The characters are deep and rich, with a historical accuracy that leaves you wanting to learn more.

I decided to read this book after going to a Books & Brunch event where Genevieve Graham was one of the authors interviewed. I liked the characters and I enjoyed the historical setting (especially the fact that it takes place during the Halifax Explosion). A very readable historical romance book.

Kept me turning pages to find out what happens next for Danny and Audrey . I appreciated learning more about Canada's history (the Halifax explosion) through this story.
