THROWBACK THURSDAY

throwbackthursday

Throwback Thursday meme is hosted by Renee@Itโ€™s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favourites as well as sharing books that you want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them ๐Ÿ™‚ These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, youโ€™re welcome to use Reneeโ€™s pic as well. If youโ€™d just link back to her @ Itโ€™s Book Talk sheโ€™d so appreciate it.

My choice this week is: The Silver Locket by Margaret James

Published 2010 by Choc Lit

From Goodreads:

9767094“If life is cheap, how much is love worth?
It’s 1914 and young Rose Courtenay has a decision to make. Please her wealthy parents by marrying the man of their choice – or play her part in the war effort?
The chance to escape proves irresistible and Rose becomes a nurse. Working in France, she meets Lieutenant Alex Denham, a dark figure from her past. He’s the last man in the world she’d get involved with – especially now he’s married.
But in wartime nothing is as it seems. Alex’s marriage is a sham and Rose is the only woman he’s ever wanted. As he recovers from his wounds, he sets out to win her trust. His gift of a silver locket is a far cry from the luxuries she’s left behind.
What value will she put on his love?”

 

This was a lovely surprise of a read. I came across it on Twitter when the author was doing a cover reveal for her latest book. Well one thing led to another and I ended up downloading the whole book after enjoying the sample on Kindle. I just had to find out what was going to happen between the main characters with theย  I loved the ‘will they won’t they’ plot. The World War One details were fascinating and I learnt a lot about the nurses situations, including the existence of ambulance trains transporting the wounded between the front lines and the ports.
I definitely recommend this if you enjoy romances and historical fiction.
