A British nurse in WWI German-occumpied Brussels, Evelyn Marche spends her days at the hospital and her nights working at a cafe… or so it seems. Eve’s most carefully guarded secret is that she also spends her nights carrying out dangerous missions as a spy for a Belgian resistance group.
When a plane crashes as she’s en route to a rendezvous, Eve is the first to reach the downside plane and is shocked to recognize the badly injured pilot as British RFC Captain Simon Forrester. She risks her life to conceal him from the Germans, but as the secrets between them grow and the danger mounts, can they still hope to make it out of Belgium alive?
In High as the Heavens, Kate Breslin intertwines adventure, mystery, espionage, romance, nationalism and history beautifully. Few books would make great movies. This is one of them.
Eve is a war widow who is trapped in German occupied Brussels working as a nurse during the day and in a cafe in the evenings. What most people don’t know is that she also works as a spy for a Belgian resistance group.
While on a mission she is the first to find the wreckage of a downed plane and recognizes the pilot as Simon Forrester. They have a past. Romance develops with a LOT of tension! Enough to make you want to keep reading and keep reading.
This book is so full of excitement, romance, kindness, and fun that you won’t want to put it down.
I will be looking forward to Kate Breslin next novel with enthusiasm.
