'Moondrops & Thistles' takes you with detail, care and honesty into the private emotions of two people falling in love.
This is not a romance about petulant misunderstandings and froths of pink happiness. Set against the background of army life, the book reveals the stress of military life: the sacrifices, the separations, the horror of war but also the valor, the honor and the weight of responsibility. The men who go to war in good cause deserve our respect, and the women who love them, our admiration.
This key aspect lifts this book way above the average romance. It has been beautifully and meticulously crafted in a way that the values and attributes of these two people will not be forgotten. If you love romance that is thoroughly realistic and carries a message, then this book is for you.
