High as the Heavens is one of the best WWI books I’ve ever heard! This novel has it all, action, suspense, duty, loyalty, love, and faith. Not to mention the narrator did a splendid job!
I felt myself getting edgy when the characters working as spies for the British intelligence were on missions, especially knowing there was a leak.
The storyline of how a newlywed separated during the war presuming each other dead, was so well written! You can feel the emotions and distrust they felt towards each other when they accidentally meet after 3 years, having both been subjected to the cruelties of the war. This is a must read for anyone who likes war books! I rate this a 5 🌟! I usually do not include the blurbs on audio books but this is too good I added it below my snapshot!
Page-Turning Intrigue and Romance from an Up-and-Coming Historical Romance Talent
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.
