I am reviewing a copy of Of Once Unto the Breach through Polis Books and Netgalley:
Once More Unto the Breach is a powerful historical thriller set against a World War 2 backdrop about a Father who will stop at nothing to find his son.
Gravenor a veteran of the Great War and a Welsh sheep farmer arrives in Paris as the city’s liberation is happening he carries in his pocket a worn letter that may have arrived years to late. He follows the footsteps of his missing son across the war torn country he struggles to come to terms with what drew a wedge between them.
He is joined by an American Ambulance driver Charlotte Dubois a woman with secrets of her own, Rhys discovers that even as liberation has swept across France, the war is far from over. He realizes too that his own war has only just started. He is haunted by memories of battles he fought before and hampered at every turn by danger and betrayal. In a race against time and war, Rhys follows his son’s trail from Paris to the dangerous streets of Vichy to the starving mobs in Lyon to the treacherous Alps. But Rhys is not the only one searching for his son. In a race of his own, a relentless enemy stalks him across the country and will stop at nothing to find the young man first. The country is in tatters, no one is trustworthy, and Rhys must unravel the mystery of his son’s wartime actions in the desperate hope of finding him before it’s too late. Too late to mend the frayed bond between them. Too late to beg his forgiveness. Too late to bring him home alive.
I find that Once More Unto the Breach is a powerfully written book full of action and suspense and is worthy of five out of five stars!
