Thoroughly pleasant escapist romance. As a former history major, I have a soft spot for WW1-era books, as that is the time period which I wrote my senior seminar paper about (ages and ages ago, lol). So, I was predisposed, I think, to love this book. The writing, plot and romance are engaging, fresh and fleshed-out. I devoured this book in 2 days and had an awesomely fun time reading it -- the romance between the hero and heroine, as well, made me melt.
