Violets in February

Violets in February

Violets in February, written by Clare Revell, is the second book I've read by this author.

This book is about a missionary doctor, Lucy, that is in a war setting and has to deal with the people hurt in the war. Through this she meets jeb, the transporter of supplies. Jeb is a rough around the edges kind of guy and has no time for the Lord. He was raised in a rough situation and has little time for Christians.

I liked how the author took the story from a war setting and made something good out of it. I once again had a hard time with the writing style. The words were so foreign that I had a hard time following at times. There is a glossary at the beginning of the book for the Australian terms, but with an ebook, I found it difficult to go back and forth to see what the words meant. Sentence structure seemed off through much of the book...but that might also be from the fact that it wasn't written with USA English in mind?!

Overall, the story was nice if you can look past the dialect of Australia and sentence structure.

I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review.
