In Love's Time


In the summer of 1918, Captain Marcus Weatherford arrives in Russia on a secret mission, with a beautiful ballerina posing as his fiancée. Marcus searches for the Romanov tsarina and her son--who both allegedly survived the murdering Bolsheviks--and the information behind an allied plot to assassinate Lenin. But Marcus's sense of duty battles his desire to return home to Clare--his actual love.

Hospital orderly Clare Danner still suffers from Marcus's betrayal and now fears losing her daughter to the heartless family who took Daisy away from Clare once before, but only Marcus can provide the critical proof needed to save her daughter.

Faced with danger and unexpected circumstances, can Clare trust Marcus, or will he shatter her world yet again?

My thoughts: After reading some of the author's previous books set during WWI, I was thrilled to have the chance to read more about Marcus and Clare. I love that the story is told from multiple viewpoints, with seeing Marcus' important mission from his side of things, but then also seeing the toll that the secrets he must keep takes on his relationship with Clare. I have to say, I personally found Clare a bit immature and annoying the beginning, but it was worth it to stick with the story, since she grows less annoying as the story proceeds. 
I love the suspense and mystery surrounding the mission and the fallout from it. The story reminds me, just a little bit, of While You Were Sleeping, since Marcus struggles to remember recent times when he sustains an injury. This book works as a stand alone, but can also be appreciated if you read the other books By Kate Breslin set during WWI. 
This is a delightful story to pick up and enjoy! I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.
