rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5Restoration RestoredDecember 29, 2020rkfallIn the historical war-based fiction of If I Were You by Lynn Austin there is found war, love, loss, and forgiveness. Lynn pens another story that intertwines some interesting character plots and story lines. I would say that if you have not read her work, you should and if you have read her work, this one will not disappoint a Lynn Austin reader. My favorite part of this story is the weaving of the restoration that was needed. Beautifully done.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Heartwarming friendship and sobering consequencesOctober 14, 2020reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"I'm to give all that I am to help others so that God is glorified." This is not a bad quote to live by. And the story in this book lives this out.
To save lives - that's why Audrey drove an ambulance in World War II. And that's why Robert was killed, but I won't say how or when because that is a spoiler.
"What might God be asking you to do?" The vicar posed this question to Audrey as she sat immobilized. And again, I think this is a quote or a question we would all do well to consider.
What a story!! Forgiveness, consequences, friendship, so much is rolled up in this 430 page historical fiction novel. It was a spell-binding book that left me flipping ahead to see what happened. Yes, I know it's a bit shameful, but sometimes I just can't wait to read every word to know how the story ends. I can't sit on pins and needles that long, even if I'm pretty sure how the story will end. It's a good book that makes me do that.
Lynn Austin rates as one of my favorite authors. She writes big fat books (which is a huge plus) that are riveting and captivating and gives you a bit of a let down when you turn the last page and the story is done. This book needs a sequel so bad because I want to know more about Audrey and Eve and how their friendship grew and changed in the next few years of their lives.
I highly recommend this book. It's a heartwarming story that is sobering at the same time as you see the consequences of sin and deceit and the long-term effects they can have.
I received this book from Tyndale via NetGalley and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
MillstreetreaderAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5For fans of WWII storiesSeptember 4, 2020MillstreetreaderAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you miss those Sunday nights when you watched the complex drama of Downton Abbey or if you got caught up in the British villagers endeavors to survive the bombings, blackouts, and rationing in Home Fires, then IF I WERE YOU is a story for you. Childhood friends, Eve and Audrey try not to let their class differences come between them, but as they grow up, it is clear that life has different paths for them. That is, until both volunteer to be lorry and ambulance drivers as the war expects everyone to do their part. Then the Americans arrive and everything changes again. This is a great story of friendship, mistakes, faith lost, faith found, and finally forgiveness. I received a copy from Netgalley. All opinions are mine.
