Caroline Leech º 1 READ & DOWNLOADAbandoning ship at 20%How just how does a novel set in WWII with a German soldier straight up ignores the bloody Holocaust and all the lives lost and turns into this generic love story War is a brutal complicated and dreadful thing for all sides involved but this is a great disservice to all those who have fought and shed blood A gripping romantic tale set in 1945 Scotland Leech s well researched historical YA novel explores a forbidden love affair between Lorna Anderson a plucky 17 ear old farm girl and Paul Vogel a German prisoner of war Written in lyrical fluid prose Leech captures the time period in amazing detail with sharp dialogue clever characterization and delicious slow burning romance Highly and enthusiastically recommended But we ll have tomorrow Yes we will have tomorrow Such simple words În excavator (Trilogia Nomilor yes But they tore me apart on the insideI was transported to the past again and this time it was to Scotland while World War II was still happening At first I really thought that this might not be suitable for all readers because WWII reminds us of holocaust and holocaust is such a really sensitive issue that might trigger something on the readers But I assureou it wasn t Well as far as I m concerned because what happened in the war itself is another story Although it was set at the time of WWII there weren t war scenes at all or any violence if that s what also An Accidental Woman you are expecting It isn t a story of WWII itself it is a story of loved ones left back home by the brothers sons or husbands who were forced to fight a war they never wanted to be part of This is not a story about the big WWII This is a story of small lives caught between the war and its big effects on these small lives It was told on third person s point of view It was set on Aberlady East Lothian Scotland on theear 1945 The pace was stead fast And the mood this book possesses right from the very start was melancholy I am not proud that my country killed many of Poppet (Jack Caffery, your people though please rememberour country has killed many Germans too But that is war is about We do not like it but we must all live with it until it is ended Lorna Anderson was a local Scot girl who was also a daughter of a farmer Lorna grew up being the only girl and the The Siege Winter youngest in the family So she was really closed to her older brothers That s why she resented the fact that both of his brothers were needed in the war both serving to fight for their country She was kind hearted forgiving knows how to stood for herself and close to everyone in their house Paul Vogel was a German prisoner of war Just like Lorna s brothers and most of the soldiers fought in this bloody war Paul was just also forced to do so He was not really an enemy but the country where he came from was Paul was a picture of kindness respect and gentlemanliness He was a man really beautifully flawed on the inside and out He was just so kind and humble He s so pure Paul Vogel had been through a lot Andes he deserves Lorna and he deserves all the best in this worldEvery farmer back in those days can reuest Farm Ladies andor farmhands to help them with their farms And in Scotland
THE POWS WERE THE PEOPLE BEINGPOWs were the people being by their officials to nearby farms to serve as farmhands Lorna s father reuested for a farmhand that will help him with his And Paul Vogel was the one who was sent to themThe war left Lorna with a very bad impression for Germans just like everyone else in their country that s why she really didn t liked Paul from the start And she doesn t want him to be there He reminded her of the war that kept her brothers away from her And it made her feel bad to let a German aka enemy in their house I honestly thought that this will be a hate to love trope but it wasn t There was no hate occurred between the two at all Only dislike from the part of LornaIt wasn t really the painful book I was expecting that will make me bawl my eyes out I would rather call this book a melancholic book than a painful book But it also made me feel giddy swooning and sometimes irritated because of some certain charactersWhat I saw in this book and what this book will always remind me of was purity While I am currently typing this and thinking about Paul and Lorna again makes me teary eyed Isn t it lovely to witness a love story so pure that is what The Accidental Romance your heart has been always longing for In this generation where purity and true love seems like already very hard to find reading such story will fill the spaces inour heart that s been empty for a long time Wait For Me just really made me feel sad most of the time Lorna and Paul s situation was just very hard The conflict of loving an enemy just because he came from the country that killed many of Chalk Cheese your countrymen was clearly felt When people were treatingou as a traitor just because Christmas with Grandma Elsie (The Original Elsie Dinsmore Classics you loved someone they thoughtou shouldn t even be friends with I didn t just see I felt how

The perfect blend of sweet romance and historical flavor Wait for Me from debut author Caroline Leech brings a fresh new voice to a much loved genreIt’s 1945 and Lorna Anderson’s life on her father’s farm in Scotland consists of endless chores and rationing knitting Red Cross scarves and praying for an Allied victory So. E real The thought is making my heart fulfilled I really can t help but think that this story was real and what I read was a love story from the past and not a fictional love story set in the pastReading this book I can t also help but think about the people of my own country back at the time when we were still a colony of America Japan or Spain It made me think and imagine our people on their shoes And how a story like theirs can just be easily erased as the time passed by like they never existed at all and no one will remember like their stories never happened at all I ve watched a couple of movies about the lives of my country s national heroes and also historical dramas from other countries One of them was our national hero Dr Jose Rizal s story plus we also studied it in our class which is mainly about his works and life while he was in Dapitan and he met Josephine Bracken Of course Josephine was not the only woman in Dr Jose Rizal s life There were And some of the other girls stories with Jose Rizal were even remarkable than what he and Josephine had if only people would know And there is also this Kdrama that is now permanently tattooed in my heart where the king fell in love with a court lady but he married other women in the end one is his niece while the other is his half sister even though he doesn t really want to while the court lady also married another man who is the king s pure brother but they only did that to help the court lady get out of the palace But despite of this they still both loved each other until the very end until one of them died and they missed the chance to tell each other how much they still and truly loved each other okay enough I want to cry again My point is that there were stories like this happened in the past that just faded like it didn t happen at all They have so much impact they were remarkable stories but time erased them Showing the world no trace like it never happened at all Lorna and Paul and the other prisoners of war and local Scot girls might not have a high status in their country just like them or movie liketeleserye like stories but they also had a love story Their own uniue real love stories Love stories that were worth sharing And this book Wait For Me by Caroline Leech Lorna Anderson and Paul Vogel s story speaks for all of them For the prisoners of war and local girls they fell in love with For all the forgotten stories in the past Aside from love family and friendship also takes a huge part in this book There was a story of friendship between Lorna and her best friend Iris who irritated me a lot that shows that best friends are best friends literally no matter what How forgiveness was really important And family was not just based on the blood that was running in Doctor Who your veins It was based on howou connect trust support and love each other Their society s structure was also a really realistic one It shows how people on the church like in this case the pastor and his wife dictate almost everything in their society Nobody officially said that they should be the leaders but just because they came from *The Church People Follow Them *church people follow them everything in their lives including their beliefs should depend on them I don t care if ou ll fight me
with this but people on the church werethis but people on the church were always right They were also people just like us who made mistakes Some of them were also judgmental just like us They were even sometimes worse And that s what was showed in this book I like it because that was just realistic perfectly portrayed and gives us a glimpse of their society s past than may even occurring in some other parts of this world until now ou must know that I will come back to ou If ou ll wait for me Wait For Me is

He expected to work alongside the enemy her brothers are fighting As Lorna reluctantly begins working with Paul she comes to see him as a human instead of an enemyWhile this book did not have a lot of the grittiness of the WWII novels I m used to it still gave an accurate depiction of war affecting every aspect of people s way of life The food and clothing rations would be a challenge for our spoiled society of today which allows readers to experience some of the difficulty of the unfamiliar situations Caroline Leech s strongest attribute in this story is showi Review I am a huge fan of World War II books so I was excited to see a new YA based one coming outLorna lives on a farm in Scotland in 1945 with her father and a farm helper Nellie while her two brothers are fighting in the war She goes to school and helps out with chores When Paul a German prisoner of war is assigned to work at the family farm Lorna finds it hard to accept his presence As time goes on and she learns about Paul though she finds it hard to stay away If she doesn t though she could lose so muchI literally sat down with this book and finished it in a day I was so engrossed in the story and the characters I couldn t put it down I loved Lorna so much She definitely had some spunk to her Paul was a German soldier so it was hard to be sympathetic to him but I think the author did try and make it so he was than that and explain some things on his end Together they were very sweet and I liked their romanceThere were a lot of great secondary characters which included her father as well as Nellie and their housekeeper They were such a great house full of people that were all s supportive of each other Her best friend Iris was a harder nut to crack I wasn t sure how I felt about her and their friendship Somehow though that made me feel it be realI do wish there was explored with the Scotland setting Also as much as I loved it I feel it could have all been explored a bit f that makes sense Still I thought it was a great story to get lost in for a day I would recommend if ou like WWII stories with a strong romantic takeThis review was originally posted on Rebel Mommy Book Blog I VE FOUND ANOTHER FAVORITE This book was incredibly beautiful and cute and romantic and stunning and screamsplease read this book Wait for me is the historical romance Capital Cities/Abc, The Early Years, 1954 1986 you didn t knowou needed in Audrey Hepburn your lifeBUT YOU NEED THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE NowWhat is it aboutGood uestion screams againIt s about Lorna and PaulTheear is 1945 She lives in a farm in Scotland He s a former german soldier who s now a prisoner of war of the British forces and who s sent to work on Lorna s dad farm This is the story of Lorna and Paul falling in lovescreams againI can t put into words how touching is this book You have to read to find out But it is one of the Loved this book I only read contemporary some of the time but I was intrigued because of the era it was set in The characters all had their flaws and their uniueness and Paul after everything he has been through

worried about a selfie and I loved the history and everything else within these pages Full reviewabout a selfie and I loved the history and everything else within these pages Full review my blog Bleeeech If I had to describe this book in one word I would probably choose corny Don t pick this up if Silent Seduction you re looking for a moving historical fiction about finding love amidst the horrors of World War 2 Pick it up ifou want to read a cheeseball teenage romance with only occasional mentions of those minor inconveniences during the war I read World War 2 historical fiction because I like reading about strong people who had to do hard things to survive during one of the most horrifying times in modern history This book only casually mentioned those horrible things as devices to keep the romance going The Blitz is mentioned once and only because the German love interest is teaching the main character the German words for thunder and lightning which is Blitzen I think the word Nazi is used like once I think that only one character from the main character s Scottish village is killed and he s a character that we never even meet Food rationing is mentioned but they always seem to have plenty of good food to eat It just felt like World War 2 was nothing than a backdrop to the romance The main character is shallow petty and obnoxious She and her best friend are constantly bickering about nothing usually instigated by the main character ragging on the best friend s boyfriend She makes snap judgements about everyone And then she flip flops about those judgements When the German love interest gets to her farm she alternates between thinking he s nothing than a dirty German and thinking he s just a beautiful misunderstood boy I wanted to throttle her for the entire book The German himself isn t bad Just kind of blah The dialogue is a little stiff and I can t tell if its because the author was trying to make it actually sound like the 1940s The end of the book was cheesy and blech Everything was tied up in a nice little bow with little to no fallout for the main character after A MAJOR WAR TAKING PLACE ON THE CONTINENT SHE LIVED ON Moral of the story this book is all fluff and no substance This was a beautiful et
