Wow! What a page turner! This historical fiction story by Nancy Bilyeau kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book which I received via an unique online book club called The Pigeonhole which gives you the book in staves. The Blue was definitely well suited to receive in staves as each stave ended with a cliffhanger. Reading the book this way made it so that I could not wait for the next stave to be made available, and when the next stave arrived I stopped everything until I finished reading it.
Nancy’s sensational picturesque writing made me feel as if I was part of the story. Her characters where all well defined with exceptional personalities, some you love, some you hate, but none are forgettable. The blending of real and fictional characters was flawless. This was definitely the best historical thriller I read this year. I was truly mesmerized throughout and was immeasurably gratified when it ended.
I received a complimentary copy (ARC) of this book from the author/publisher via Pigeonhole. I was under no obligation to write a review, and all options expressed in this review are completely my own.
