About the Book

Book: Hearts Under Fire

Author: Cori Lynn

Genre: Historical Fiction

Release date: April 3, 2022

When Laura, a heartbroken antique expert, stumbles across an old steamer trunk, she decides it is the perfect restoration project to distract her from her recent loss. She quickly discovers the trunk has a few mysteries of its own, including a journal dating back to 1941.

Laura finds herself caught up in a heroic love story between Ava and her high school sweetheart Dean. Their story of first love is suddenly interrupted when World War II begins, and Dean is sent to the front lines; leaving Ava to bravely fight her own battles supporting the war effort from home.

Laura soon identifies with Ava’s perseverance and in the process, is challenged to overcome her own hardships. However, the journal unexpectedly ends, leaving Laura with unanswered questions about Ava’s life. Laura is determined to uncover the missing pieces from the journal, but will she find the answers she seeks? And can she find the courage to love again?

This dual timeline story grabbed m attention from the moment I Egan reading. When Laura, an antique expert, finds a steamer trunk, she sets out to restore it, and in the process discovers a journal with a story that parallels her own life.

I loved reading about the time of World War II through the eyes of Ava, her sister Tessa, their parents, Grayson, and Dean. Ava’s journals help bring the time to life for Laura. For anyone who enjoys dual timeline stories, this book fits that genre perfectly.

I felt the story moved at a good pace, and the author developed it well. I also must say I thoroughly enjoyed the character development. So check out this book for ourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Cori

Hearts Under Fire is a historical romance with a contemporary twist. The historical plotline was inspired by the first-hand accounts provided by my grandparents on both sides of the family. Hearts Under Fire differs in that it brings in a contemporary twist and it explores the idea of the parallels between the love story in 1941 and the contemporary love story from present day.
