To Stand in the Breach by Danielle Grandinetti // Review


Veterinarian Dr. Katy Wells has finally found a place to call home after running for much of her life, but when a milk strike puts her patients in danger she must decide who she can trust. 

An engaging read with a strong heroine, well researched I thought that the story did a great job of bringing to light the horrible practice of Magdalene Laundries, as well as the plights of dairy farmers during the Great Depression. I admired Joey for his reliable and protective nature, an excellent friend, brother and son. I liked how he is patient with Katy, always putting others first. Joey, definitely was a favorite!

Overall, this was an enjoyable read with a very original historical angle, well written characters and an engaging plot. I loved the idea of a female large animal vet in the 1930's, and for the most part really liked the story. Though I did struggle to give credibility to just how nuts Fergus was, and thought that it took away from the believability of the plot. Otherwise I really enjoyed this story, and will definitely be on the lookout for Lily's story. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
