2 Corinthians 5:7 states, “For we live by faith, not by sight.” With these words as a foundation, the newest novel by Kate Breslin is truly a poetic masterpiece you won’t want to miss. Written with insight and tenderness, Not by Sight is a beautiful tale of love and redemption – while at the same time a powerful WWI story packed with intrigue, tension and deception. Although this Britain-based book has been endorsed as being similar to the Downton Abbey television series, I believe it greatly outshines the show in all aspects of faith, virtues and morality, and even loveable characters.
Not by Sight is the type of book that will please a variety of readers. Do you enjoy sweet, realistic, heart-melting love stories between characters you adore and respect? If so, the relationship between Grace Mabry and Jack Benningham will undoubtedly surpass your expectations in that department, all while remaining honorable and refreshingly free of inappropriate content. Or perhaps you prefer a little more action and excitement, with nail biting high points that keep you on the edge of your seat and surprise you at every turn… Well, the intrigue of enemy spies and dark secrets will satisfy your inner-adventurer, as well! And finally, if emotion-laden stories packed with drama, secrets, and conspiracy are more your style, Not by Sight will surely never disappoint in this category, either – for reasons too numerous to mention.
Overall, Not by Sight is a novel that is strong in all the areas that matter; clean content, admirable virtues, relatable and loveable characters, and a story that will capture your imagination and completely sweep you away. If you enjoy Christian Historical Fiction even a little, this book is told with such masterful skill that you will find it very difficult to regret any moment you spent reading it. And if you are like me, you will also find portions that you love to re-read over and over again.
