High As The Heavens by Kate Breslin

Do You Love Me?

High As The Heavens by Kate Breslin is a fabulous Christian historical suspense set in 1917 in war torn and occupied Belgium. It is a work of fiction that has been inspired by fact.

The reader is treated to fast paced action as we journey through WWI with spies, agents, double agents etc. There is always the question of trust. Sometimes we trust the right people but not always.

War alters people. There is a different moral code. People do what they have to do in order to survive. Guilt reigns in the cold light of day. “She… allowed the tyrant guilt to keep her locked in the past, blinding her to… hope.” We cannot live in the past, carrying the burden of guilt. We must look to God and live in hope, especially in times of war.

War produces good men and women on both sides. The key is in recognising who they are.

The Red Cross provided nurses to treat all the wounded. “I tended to the wounded in my care, regardless of uniforms… They were all human beings.” We need to remember that every soldier is somebody’s son. There are no winners in war. Loved ones are lost on all sides.

It may seem that God is silent or even absent. God never leaves us. He walks beside us always. We need to learn to recognise His voice and feel His presence.

The action came thick and fast as I experienced a roller coaster of a read through the world of war and espionage. Absolutely marvellous. I was consumed from the start.

I received this book for free from Net Galley. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
