Read High As the Heavens Online Free - In 1917, Evelyn Marche is just one of many women who has been widowed by the war. A British nurse trapped in German-occupied Brussels, she spends her days working at a hospital and her nights as a waitress in her aunt and uncle's café. Eve also has a carefully guarded secret keeping her in constant danger: She's a spy working for a Belgian resistance group in league with the British Secret Service.
When a British plane crashes in Brussels Park, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to discover she recognizes the badly injured pilot. British RFC Captain Simon Forrester is now a prisoner of war, and Eve knows he could be shot as a spy at any time. She risks her own life to hide him from the Germans, but as the danger mounts and the secrets between them grow, their chance of survival looks grim. And even if they do make it out alive, the truth of what lies between them may be more than any love can overcome.

Oh, this was like a warm blanket and a fire on a chilly, rainy day...or like eating gourmet mac and cheese when you've had a bad day. This type of story hits all my cozy spots and makes me want to climb into the story and hug all the characters, maybe even jump up and down with them for their joy...

This is the second book I have read by Kate Breslin; and, once again, her writing was incredible. Taking place in Belgium during World War I, Breslin brought Brussels to life with her rich historical detail of the life and times during this period. The story line was captivating as British Red Cr...

Before anything else, can we just take a moment to admire that cover? *sighs happily* It's even more beautiful in person!
Now onto my long-awaited review of this lovely book. ;)
- The plot. It was so unique, as it focused on Belgium during WWI, which is actually the first of its kin...

High as the Heavens is one of the rare WWI novels found in Christian Fiction. The main characters are a nurse (Evelyn) and a pilot (Simon). I loved the unique twist in the romance portion of the novel in that the characters are already married. In the pages, readers get a glimpse at what life was...

Hmmm . . . 3.5 stars.
This was a bit of a disappointment in some ways.
The characters were fascinating, and had my interest from page one. The writing style, as I've already come to expect from Breslin, was beautiful. The story kept me turning pages and was unique, multifaceted, and full of suspen...

I really enjoyed this read for three main reasons.
First, it was set in WWI. Most historical fiction reads are WWII. I'm not sure why, but the facts and history of the Second World War are much more popular among writers.
Secondly, the setting was in Brussels. The setting lends itself to more of w...

First of all, I love how the story followed a married couple, Eve and Simon, instead of a couple that falls in love and gets married at the end of the book (as much as I love those, this was a nice change, especially in a stand-alone book). The author captured their emotions and feelings beautifu...

Why I Choose this Book:
World War One.
What I Thought about this Book:
Oh my lands, folks. This book. This book was amazing. The first half of the book I kinda had my mouth wanting to drop open because it was nearly a five-star read and that happens about onc...
