Grounded Hearts, written by Jeanne M. Dickson, is a novel set in Ireland during World War II. I enjoyed how the novel got right to the point in the first chapter. I liked Nan O’Neil, the town midwife. Her character was written really well. She’s witty and intelligent. Finding strong women characters in books is always encouraging. I enjoyed getting to know her and how seemingly shy she seemed but really wasn’t.
The novel uses a lot of tense moments to have the readers buy in. It worked for me! I recommend Grounded Hearts. I would read another Jeanne M. Dickson book. I like her style and approach to the characters. I could almost hear their accents.
Below is the blurb from the blog tour if you are interested.
What do you get when you mix World War II, a brave midwife, a wounded pilot, and a risky secret? Jeanne M. Dickson’s new historical fiction novel, Grounded Hearts. When midwife Nan O’Neil finds a wounded young Canadian pilot at her door, she knows she’s taking a huge risk by letting him in. Still, something compels Nan to take in “flyboy” Dutch Whitney, an RAF pilot whose bomber has just crashed over County Clare. While she tends to his wounds and gives him a secret place of refuge, the two begin to form a mutual affection-and an unbreakable bond.
