There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Stanley 19 yrs was a soldier in WW1 his friends dying around him with communications down. Running trenches to get code words from command to retreat was his objective..was his last thought.
Devon was researching and writing a thesis on the history of the 44th battalion served in France.
It was an instalove romance which I don’t always enjoy but the part of the story about Stanley’s mission added depth and shading to the book so overall it was a really great read. Although the book does include time travel it isn’t a huge part of the plot, it’s just accepted by the MC’s as happening, so it is paranormal but if paranormal isn’t your thing you’ll still enjoy this book as the story focuses more on relationships rather than mystical events.
I’m looking forward to the next book in the series as I’d like to read more by this author.

The author has definitely put a great deal of love and attention into the creation of her main characters. Devon is a lonely, devout academic who is obsessed by World War One and moves from the US to spend time in a cottage on the edge of a former wartime dugout where an entire battalion of young American soldiers was slaughtered in 1916.
Stanley is one of the soldiers in that ill-fated unit, and the story is told alternately from each man's viewpoint, as Devon researches the battle for his thesis and Stanley valiantly attempts to survive it.
A glitch in time throws Stanley across 100 years into the future after a mustard gas attack, where he meets and slowly begins to have feelings for Devon.
This is a slow - burning intimacy, Stanley is initially wary. In 1916 love between two men was still illegal and the feelings he harboured for a fellow soldier, Isaac, had to be kept firmly under wraps. From Devon, he learns of a brighter future world where a man can freely love his fellow man.
However his incomplete mission to bring back the code message signalling retreat that will save his doomed unit keeps on pulling him back to 1916 to try again, and a again.
I loved the little details that Jackie North sowed into her story, the grim realities of life in the trenches for these young men who had signed up for adventure and in many cases marched directly to their deaths. Her characters are richly drawn, full of warmth and even grim humour.
She gets the balance between Stanley's devotion to his friends, Isaac in particular, and Devon back (or forward) in the 21st Century perfectly right and the culmination of their story brought more than a few tears to my eyes.
I would recommend this book to someone who is a history lover and enjoys a sweet MM romance with a hint of the paranormal.
This novel was incredibly well researched. The WWI details were so finely sketched. I could picture myself there in the trenches. It's always impressive when you can see how much work an author put into researching the topic she's writing about.
The relationship between Stanley and Devon was super sweet. My first thought was, "Oh, this is pretty insta, huh?" but whenever they were apart, I was desperate for them to reunite so I was absolutely sucked into their connection and it made sense and felt authentic.
I'm so looking forward to the next in the series.
What really makes this a five star story is the fact that everything comes together to make it more than just good, but brilliant. Plot. Suspense. Tension. Characterization. Romance. Even though the plot has time travel, this is really a contemporary romance with a great HEA!
I am very impressed that the convolutions of time travel are handled so consistently well by the author. It could have gotten confusing, but it never did. And the characters make it soar.
I love the two main characters, Stanley and Devon, equally. They are so sweet. Stanley is so innocent and worried, and Devon is so infatuated. If I were forced to pick a fave, I couldn't.
For a first novel, Jackie North hit this one out of the ball park. It's probably one of the most brilliant novels I've read this year. HIghly recommend!
I really, really, really liked this book. The historical details were interesting and fascinating, and the characters were likeable and sweet. It was easy to root for their love and cheer them on.
The audiobook was narrated by Greg Boudreaux who was the perfect choice for this audiobook. He has a wonderful voice that has a wide range of voices that he can do. Greg performed the audiobook really well and I found it incredibly enjoyable to listen to.
