Grace Mabry is a woman of passion. She believes that all able-bodied men should be fighting for England in the Great War – just like her brother. But she is infuriated that men like Jack Bennington, heir to a great estate, can’t make himself enlist and join the fight. Armed with a white feather, Grace waltzes into a masquerade ball and hand Jack the symbol of his cowardice.
Little does she realize the truth behind the man and the terrible consequences that her actions produce in his life.
Not By Sight is a very enjoyable tale full of danger and intrigue. From the first pages, I was caught up in the story, trying to figure out who was leaking secrets to the enemy. I can honestly say, it took me a long time to figure out the answer – a sure sign of a great novel.
If you love stories about WWI, are a fan of Downton Abbey or other period dramas set in that era, I would highly recommend this book for your enjoyment.
In the spring of 1917, all of Britain’s attention is on the WWI war front and the thousands of young men serving their country on the front lines. Jack Benningham, dashing heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, is young and able-bodied but refuses to enlist despite the contempt of his peers.
A wealthy young suffragette, Grace Mabry will do anything to assist her country’s cause. Men like Jack infuriate her when she thinks of her own brother fighting in the trenches of France, so she has no reservations about handing him a white feather of cowardice at a posh masquerade ball.
But Grace could not anticipate the danger and betrayal set into motion by her actions, and soon she and Jack are forced to learn the true meaning of courage when the war raging overseas suddenly strikes much closer to home and their fervent beliefs become a matter of life and death.
