Book Recommendation - Sworn Enemy by A.L. Sowards



Book Blurb, Sworn Enemy:
            As World War II rages, the people of Eastern Europe are hopelessly trapped between two formidable forces: Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union. In their midst, a band of heroes prepares for the changes the coming battles will bring.
            After narrowly escaping her Nazi captors, French Resistance worker Genevieve Olivier has fled to Allied territory with the help of American Lieutenant Peter Eddy. Their connection is undeniable, forged in the crucible of danger. But despite their blossoming feelings for each other, they must both finish the work they began . . .
            In the safety of England, Genevieve hopes to find purpose as a nurse—all the while unaware that the Gestapo still seeks the woman who slipped through their grasp. When she is called upon to resume a life of danger as a French spy, will her desire to prove herself be her downfall?
            Recruited by an elite special-ops team intent on thwarting the Nazis, Peter finds himself engaged in a personal battle as well—there is a traitor among his comrades. Deep in the Carpathian Mountains, Peter combats an unknown foe. The stakes are high as he fights to save the lives of his teammates.
            They are miles apart, yet as Genevieve and Peter fight for their own survival, they find a common well of strength in their faith—and their determination to be reunited.

My Review:

Don't pick up Sworn Enemy unless you've got some time to devote to reading. I was so wrapped up in this story I couldn't sleep or pay any attention to my children! It's a fabulous book - intense, heartbreaking, romantic, and inspiring. I would recommend it to anyone, but it is really intense so you might want to be careful if you are prone to nightmares. 
Sworn Enemy was great as a stand-alone but there is a previous book, Espionage. I'm going to go back and read Espionage, you might want to read it first. 

Bio:
A.L. Sowards grew up in Moses Lake, Washington, then came to Utah to attend BYU and ended up staying. She wrote most of her latest release while her twin toddlers were sleeping and did most of the revisions while they were supposed to be sleeping, but were really using their crib mattresses as trampolines.
