Grounded Hearts (Waterfall Press, July 2017)
A brave midwife. A wounded pilot. A risky secret.
In the midst of World War II, Ireland has declared herself neutral. Troops found on Irish soil must be reported and interned, no matter which side they are fighting for. When midwife Nan O’Neil finds a wounded young Canadian pilot at her door, she knows she’s taking a huge risk by letting him in. Not only is she a widow living alone, but if caught harboring a combatant, she’ll face imprisonment.

Still, something compels Nan to take in “flyboy” Dutch Whitney, an RAF pilot whose bomber has just crashed over County Clare. While she tends to his wounds and gives him a secret place of refuge, the two begin to form a mutual affection—and an unbreakable bond.
But Nan has another secret, one that has racked her with guilt since her husband’s death and made her question ever loving again. As Nan and Dutch plan his escape, can he help restore her faith?
My Thoughts:
Wow! What a great book. I was completely taken by this book. It was not your typical read from a writing perspective and I loved that! This book was amazing in details and I learned so much about the war in Ireland. Grounded Hearts engulfed my heart and captivated me with each page, especially as I got to know the characters, especially Nan. You'll laugh, being swoon by the romance and find this book to be some what of an unexpected adventure. I just loved this book and if I talk anymore, I'll give spoilers away. Grab this book and put it on your summer reading list. I give this book 5/5 stars. Thank you to the publisher for providing me a copy. A favorable review was not required.
