The Act of Love By Carol Drinkwater

The Act of Love By Carol Drinkwater


France, 1943.

Forced to flee war ravaged Poland, Sara and her parents are offered refuge in a beautiful but dilapidated house in the French Alps. It seems the perfect hideaway, despite haunting traces of the previous occupants who left in haste.

But shadows soon fall over Sara’s blissful summer, and her blossoming romance with local villager Alain. As the Nazis close in, the family is forced to make a harrowing choice that could drive them apart forever, while Sara’s own bid for freedom risks several lives . . .

Will her family make it through the summer together?
And can she hold onto the love she has found with Alain?

My Thoughts:

I like reading Carol’s books, they are always intriguing and her writing is very descriptive, this story is about Sara and her parents who have had to run away from Poland to France. It is set in 1943 and there is a war going on in Poland that forces them to run. In France they stay in a run down house tucked away in the Alps. In the Summer Sara even have a little romance going on with a local, but things don’t always fall in to place and the Nazis are closing in, will the family be able to stay together or will they have to make an unbearable choice? I found this story a little slow but I liked how the story was told and the ending was good.
