The Brass Compass: A Novel by Ellen Butler
This is not my first read by this author, she is actually a favorite of mine even though I went back and forth on this one before I decided to give it a shot. I am not normally drawn to these type of stories but I am drawn to this author.
I did enjoy it although it still did not sell me on the genre itself, there’s no way to deny how well it was all written. This book was full of suspense and danger and constant action. Following Lily in this book had me feeling like I was fleeing with her and I was on the edge of my seat through most of it.
It had just enough romance mixed in and I highly recommend anyone that reads historical fiction especially around the WW2 time period go one click this book right now.
This author is a master storyteller and I can not wait to get my hands on anything else she writes.
