Grounded Hearts by Jeanne M. Dickson

Into the Wild

Read Grounded Hearts Online Free - In the midst of World War II, Ireland has declared herself neutral. Troops found on Irish soil must be reported and interned, no matter which side they are fighting for. When midwife Nan O’Neil finds a wounded young Canadian pilot at her door, she knows she’s taking a huge risk by letting him in. Not only is she a widow living alone, but if caught harboring a combatant, she’ll face imprisonment.

Still, something compels Nan to take in “flyboy” Dutch Whitney, an RAF pilot whose bomber has just crashed over County Clare. While she tends to his wounds and gives him a secret place of refuge, the two begin to form a mutual affection—and an unbreakable bond.

But Nan has another secret, one that has racked her with guilt since her husband’s death and made her question ever loving again. As Nan and Dutch plan his escape, can he help restore her faith?

by Andrea Renee Cox The gorgeous cover of this book fooled me, as did the premise. I expected a sweet story about a midwife who rescued an injured flyboy, but once I dug into the plot, I discovered the sweetness was merely a mask, and a flimsy one at that. The majority of the story ended up being...

Grounded Hearts by Jeanne Dickson is a romantic and compelling tale. The details on wartime life in neutral Ireland are fascinating, and the village is filled with a charmingly humorous populace.

While I've read many, many novels set during World War II, I've never read one quite like this. It's set entirely in Ireland, which had declared herself neutral during the war. Therefore, any troops found in Ireland—weather Axis or Allied—were subject to internment, and anyone found helping them...
