A Review of Gooseberry Island By Steven Manchester

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

They met at the worst possible moment...or maybe it was just in time. David McClain was about to go to war and Lindsey Wood was there at his going-away party, capturing his heart when falling for a woman was the last thing on his mind. While David was serving his country, he stayed in close contact with Lindsey. But war changes a person, and when he came home very little had the same meaning that it had before – including the romance that had sustained him. Was love truly unconquerable, or would it prove to be just another battlefield casualty?
* I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

It made me smile and it made me cry- A LOT. It was a book with a timely message- about veterans with PTSD and the war in Afghanistan. The message was a serious one but was written in a very sensitive and effective way. I felt as if I was with the characters both on Gooseberry Island and at war with David. I enjoyed the novel very much.
