    This review was written for Maggie Bright: A Novel of Dunkirk.
    Maggie Bright by new to me author Tracy Groot is a story that I wont soon forget. This is a fictional account of the Miracle of Dunkirk before America joined the British during World War 2. This powerful novel gives us a glimpse of some of the horrors that were being done to innocents who were thought less human due to their handicaps. This story tells us of how one day the King of Britain called for his country to a day of prayer as their soldiers were getting slaughtered across the shore. This is the tale of the Miracle of Dunkirk when ordinary civilians risked life, limb, and property to bring those soldiers home on any sea worthy vehicle they could find.

    There was such a powerful message through this book as Paradise Lost was oftentimes quoted (now I would like to pick that up to read), as we witness the power of prayers, and wonder what is really going on in the heavenly realms that is creating such havoc on earth. I look forward to more stories by Tracy Groot.

    I was provided with a copy of this book for an honest review through The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.

    This review was written for Maggie Bright: A Novel of Dunkirk.
    I am NOT a book reviewer so my high scores are because Maggie Bright was gripping and encouraging and funny and good.

    I made myself read it slowly because I enjoyed the author's style so much; too often, Christians authors are good but not complex and I actually enjoyed the fact that Tracy Groot used a style that made me think. I loved the theme of doing the right thing and "everyone should have the chance to look evil in the eye". I loved the subtle Christian message. I say, "Well Done!" to the author. I loved this book and bought a copy to share with anyone of my friends who would promise to return it!!

    This review was written for Maggie Bright: A Novel of Dunkirk.
    Tracy Groot is a brilliant and masterful story teller. This book is no exception. Each character is engaging and comes to life on each page. Tracy's historical research of England and France in WWII is flawless in detail an takes place in the early 1940's. A fictional story about the evacuation of the British troops from the beaches of Dunkirk .

    Clare Childs has inherited a 52 foot yacht named the Maggie Bright that will change her life in ways that she cannot even begin to imagine. There is also Jamie Elliott one of the young soldiers in retreat from Hitler's forces on the beaches of Dunkirk who is waiting to be rescued.

    The Maggie Bright and Jamie's father's boat the Lizzie Rose are docked in the Elliot's boatyard and answer the Navy's call for help.

    An amazing story written on the pages of this book of courage, loyalty, determination, despair intrigue, the power of prayer and so much more.

    If you like Tracy Groot's other books or even if this the first of her books you have read and like historical fiction about WWII you will love reading the Maggie Bright. I highly recommend this book.

    I received a free copy of this book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

    This review was written for Maggie Bright: A Novel of Dunkirk.
    Maggie Bright by Tracy Groot is an engaging historical novel set in the 1940s in England and France. The author relates two connected stories. The first story is about Clare Childs, a young woman who has inherited an impressive 52-foot yacht, and this changes her life. A burglars furtive search for hidden documents onboard, brings involvement in a Scotland Yard investigation, a surprising revelation about her real father, a discovery of a relative previously unknown to her, a relationship with a courageous man, and an important mission in the war effort.

    The second story focuses on the plight of Jamie Elliott and other British soldiers in retreat from Hitlers forces in France. These stragglers, cut off from their units, struggle to survive and have little hope for rescue at the beaches of Dunkirk. The Maggie Bright and Jamies fathers boat, the Lizzie Rose, docked at Elliotts Boatyard, answer the Navys call for assistance with the rescue.

    I recommend this very interesting novel that immerses the reader in the setting of WWII. I have read another work by this author, The Sentinels of Andersonville, and enjoyed it. I look forward to other works by this author. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for Maggie Bright: A Novel of Dunkirk.
    Maggie Bright is an amazing historical fiction.It brings to life a part of history in a way that leaves the reader wanting more. The book captures the saving of the soldiers at Dunkirk. Maggie Bright is the yacht that was captured and used to transport the soldiers. I look forward to reading more of Tracy Groot's works.

    I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
