The book follows them through four years, each ending in a Christmas, as their relationship deepens in brief encounters stolen out of the ruinous war. Even the end of the war does not bring peace for this small would-be family -- Rosemarie has been evacuated out of the path of the battles, and she and Harry have lost touch with one another.
Part 4 of the book is set in 2019, beginning as Harry faces repatriation from Wales to Canada, his father's well-meant interference in his future, and the influenza that devastated the post-war world. Rosemarie leaves her son with his uncle to search for her beloved. Nothing is easy.
I love Warfield's decent men and courageous women. Harry might just be one of my favourites. I particularly loved his scenes with Marcel. As for Rosemarie, watching her overcome obstacle after obstacle, including her own self doubt, broke my heart -- but I trusted Warfield to mend it again, and she did. Right at the eleventh hour, which is the best time, in a novel.
I strongly recommend Christmas Hope.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I have also ordered my own published copy.
Caroline Warfield has created a unique time and surroundings for this story to take place. The amount of research she had to do in itself is amazing and for her to bring it to life where I could see it unfolding is a special gift that benefits her readers. Oh yes, this reader included!
Harry has so many burdens that the war brings. Seeing his fellow soldiers dying and trying to survive takes it tole. So when he, in a moment of fate, meets Rosemarie who has rescued his beloved Bible that slipped into the water, he sees a glimmer of light.
Hope. Hope that can bring about miracles and finding love is the best miracle of all. A story of the heart as only this author can write that will not soon be forgotten.
Read the synopsis yourself, but I would add that, unlike many categorically historical romances, "Christmas Hope" has such a strong rural French imagery combined with a slow burn attraction and characters that feel well-matched and intelligent, that I cannot forget it. I will definitely read this more than once. It was a very satisfying read and the best story or book I've read by Caroline Warfield to date. Thank you, Caroline!
