REVIEW: “The Border” by Kim Fielding

PersonalizedBannerSheri

ABOUT:

Injured in a war that has stretched on for years, Sergeant John Peterson guards a lonely border. Aside from passing contact with railship captains, the only person he sees is the enemy: the man who guards the other side of the border. A bad fall places John’s life in the other soldier’s hands. He’s wary of his rescuer, First Lieutenant Thomas Fellowes, but over time he finds himself drawn to his new companion. Both soldiers carry the war in their souls, but they might find peace in each other

REVIEW:

War stories ALWAYS upset me. During movies all it takes is simply a few chords of music and instantly the waterworks begin. I was feeling quite brave when I asked for this one, and hot damn am I glad. I am extremely grateful the combat scenes were in the past. This takes place during the war, but while peace and treaties were undergoing. Wounds are still raw. Memories are still crisp. Rivals are still dangerous.

A line in the earth, a border, a division keeps two strangers apart. They are enemies but share a common ground. Both are plagued with nightmares, guilt and pain. Equally isolated and starved for more than the finer comforts in life, they carry out their duties as expected. Until an unexpected accident brings them together and great risks are taken.

Rules are broken, borders are breached, and in turn, trust slowly blooms. A garden is sown and they will reap more than vegetables. They save each other in the midst of a hopeless and desperate time. They find love in the most unlikely place. They grasp onto hope and a chance to rebuild and forge ahead into a fresh future…together.

It was beautiful, powerful and exceptional. A rescue mission which restores and redeems battered souls. Gorgeous writing, powerful characters, and honestly, I could go on and on.

Bottom line? Mrs. Fielding has a new fan
