text ↠ In Another Time Õ Caroline Leech

Love is worth the fight It’s 1942 and Maisie McCall is in the Scottish Highlands doing her bit for the war effort as a Women’s Timber Corps lumberjill Maisie relishes her newfound independence and her growing friendships especially with the enigmatic John Lindsay As Maisie and John work side by si 25 ⭐️I have mixed feelings about In Another Time I really appreciate what the author was trying to do by creating a historical fiction novel about World War II that was from a uniue perspective and about a facet of the war that is very rarely discussed in the context of history It was definitely interesting getting to learn about lumberjacks and limberjills and their efforts to support their countries in the war This was a part of history that I had no idea about before but I wish there were tidbits of the actual history included There were definitely a lot of references to the jobs of lumberjackslumberjills but it wasn’t always in reference back to the context of the period of time The pacing of the plot was good and I liked that there were multiple layers of the story going on at once; from the romance to the war efforts to the family drama I really enjoyed the side characters like Dot Nancy and Phyllis but I just couldn’t connect with the main characters Maisie and John They didn’t come across as very dynamic to me and I didn’t find any emotional pull to either of them I liked the idea of this book I just didn’t fully enjoy the execution

In Another TimeHe’s been hiding Suddenly everything is complicated than Maisie expected And as she helps John untangle his shattered history she must decide if she’s willing to risk her heart to help heal his But in a world devastated by war love might be the only thing left that can begin to heal what’s broke Leech has penned another coming of age novel set in Scotland during WWII and Maisie McCall is as delightful and spunky a heroine as Lorna Anderson in Leech’s debut novel Wait for Me Maisy makes a bid for independence and a chance to pitch in for the war effort by enlisting in the Women’s Timber Service at the age of seventeen The rigor and challenges of the brutal physical labor suits Maisy as does the opportunity to form new friendships with the other Lumberjills and perhaps a romance with a handsome Canadian LumberjackAs with her first novel Leech’s rich sensory details will transport her readers to the evergreen forests of the Scottish Highlands and to the charming nostalgia of the British homefront during WWII The Lumberjills worked under less than ideal circumstances Their housing was spartan and under heated and the women worked in locales isolated from larger communities that might have offered them social diversions in their off hours They were dedicated hard workers and their contributions to the war effort have gone unsung for too long The strong camaraderie among the Lumberjills shines in Leech’s capable hands Maisie’s romance with the dashing John Lindsay will captivate and charm readers of all ages John holding secrets and crushing guilt close presents a challenge to Maisie’s patience and her growing bonds with him Maisie stays true to her hard won self assurance and convictions despite the challenges this course presents to her budding relationship with John With each revelation of another layer of his war time experiences and the effects on his mental and physical well being John grows into the man worthy of Maisie’s love
