At the height of the London Blitz, Viola Craft, a sexually repressed young woman is trapped in a loveless marriage to her God fearing husband Vernon.

After failed attempts, Vernon believes she's barren and alienates himself from their marriage.

Five Boundless Stars
I have to say this book had me on page one. It is a story of love and war, pain and heartbreak, survival and revival. It really had me to the point I just did not want to put it down. Viola in her own right is lost. She is living in the time of war and with a husband who tries to care but falls short. She falls in love with another man and together they become a family. Loss after loss brings her to her final destination and to me as a reader it seems like a place of much needed peace. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the setting and I had a love and hate for the characters. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
