Beyond the Lavender Fields by Arlem Hawks // Review

My Review: 

A gripping romance set during the French Revolution. 

A beautifully told story, I loved the nuance and the complexities of the characters, as they question the convictions that they stand for during a tumultuous time. The story is primarily told through the eyes of Gilles, a revolutionary with medical aspirations, while we get snippets from Marie-Caroline in her letters to her cousin. I liked that both of the characters are challenged by their experiences to think more about their beliefs, as they are drawn together despite the events that tear them apart. 

The catchphrase struck me as odd at first, but grew on me over the course of the book. The author does a great job of bringing the time period to life through her characters. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of books written about the French Revolution, but I found myself really enjoying this one. 

Overall, a historically rich romance read that brings you into the conflict of the French Revolution. 

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