My Thoughts

These are Christian historical thrillers, with fascinating back-stories. If you like stories set during the First World War, thrillers backed by real history, backed by powerful lessons, you’ll enjoy this compelling trilogy.

These historical novels, set during the Great War, include a rich cast of characters, treacherous women spies, and assassination plots. There’s an infant held hostage in the final book, a gripping tension-filled trial, and even a castle at stake.

Especially interesting are notes about the the author’s for this excellent series, and revelation of which characters are historical and which are based on real people.
