Book Review - Not by Sight by Kate Breslin

The historical romance novel is set in Britain around WWI. The story's two main characters, the beautiful and enchanting Grace Mabry and heir to the Earl of Stonebrooke, Jack Benningham, meet when the war efforts are spreading across the country. Grace, the inspiring suffragette is willing all able body men to join the cause while Jack publicly has shown no interesting in fighting and rather spend his time doing questionable things.

The pair meet at a ball when Grace hands Jack a white feather to shame him into joining the the battle. Shortly, after her stunt Grace has two options -- she is either sent to work or sent to her aunt where she will be married off to her father's protege. Not one to marry without love, Grace enters the women workforce where she meets a mysterious man with a metal mask. Intrigue and curiosity with her innate desire to be a writer fuels Grace to learn more.  Little does she know if their two paths cross, it could mean life or death.

The story at first was very slow but gradually picks up. Towards the midpoint of the book, I found it hard to put the book down. The way Jack and Grace's faith and life are intertwined was truly mesmerizing especially the part for forgiveness. Can you forgive an enemy if means being with the one you love?
