To Stand in the Breach


She came to America to escape a workhouse prison, but will the cost of freedom be too high a price to pay?

1933, Wisconsin -- Large animal veterinarian Katy Wells takes her patients' welfare personally, so it's no surprise when she stands up to angry farmers planning a milk strike or takes in an injured draft horse to save its life.

But after a visitor from the past discovers her location and reveals a threat, she must choose between her work and her freedom, and whether to trust a man to keep her safe.

Prequel novella to A Strike to the Heart, releasing April 2022 from Heritage Beacon Press/Iron Stream Media

My thoughts: I enjoyed this delightful novella immensely! Novella's can be hit or miss with me, since it can be hard to get the full range of a story in such a short book. Danielle Grandinetti did a wonderful job of bringing the story together, with a lot of tension from the setting of the Great Depression, as well as Katy Wells being an Irish immigrant and the difficulties that it brings. I loved the history, since I have a lot of Irish ancestors, and I found the EPIC museum in Dublin an excellent museum on those who migrated from Ireland. 

This was an enjoyable novella and I look forward to reading the full length novel that comes after it!

I received this book from JustRead. This is my honest review.
