Midnight on the Marne by Sara Adlakha @sarahadlakha @suzyapbooktours #bookreview #fiction #historicalfiction


France, 1918. Nurse Marcelle Marchand has important secrets to keep. Her role as a spy has made her both feared and revered, but it has also put her in extreme danger from the approaching German army.

American soldier George Mountcastle feels an instant connection to the young nurse. But in times of war, love must wait. Soon, George and his best friend Philip are 

fighting for their lives during the Second Battle of the Marne, where George prevents Philip from a daring act that might have won the battle at the cost of his own life.

On the run from a victorious Germany, George and Marcelle begin a new life with Philip and Marcelle’s twin sister, Rosalie, in a brutally occupied France. Together, this self-made family navigates oppression, near starvation, and unfathomable loss, finding love and joy in unexpected moments.

Years pass, and tragedy strikes, sending George on a course that could change the past and rewrite history. Playing with time is a tricky thing. If he chooses to alter history, he will surely change his own future—and perhaps not for the better.


Marcelle is a nurse during the war but she is also a spy. She ends up meeting an American soldier, George. These two create a life together but as the war moves along thing change drastically and tragedy strikes.

This novel is told in several different time periods. It begins with Marcelle as an older woman and she comes across a diary and this takes her back to a past she thought long forgotten.

I have not read too many WWI books so this was a nice change of pace. I loved Marcelle. Talk about someone who can keep a secret and never gives up…It is this woman right here! When she meets her American soldier, George, he is immediately taken with her. These two really change the course of many lives. And yes! You will need to read this to find out exactly what I am talking about. It is a twist in this novel I never saw coming!

Need a great story about WWI…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
