I have been a fan of Rachel McMillan since meeting Merinda and Jem in the first Herringford and Watts Mystery. But Rachel McMillan has outdone herself in her newest release. You do not want to miss The London Restoration.
About the Book
From author Rachel McMillan comes a richly researched historical romance that takes place in post-World War II London and features a strong female lead.
Determined to save their marriage and the city they love, two people divided by World War II’s secrets rebuild their lives, their love, and their world.
London, Fall 1945. Architectural historian Diana Somerville’s experience as a codebreaker at Bletchley Park and her knowledge of London’s churches intersect in MI6’s pursuit of a Russian agent named Eternity. Diana wants nothing more than to begin again with her husband Brent after their separation during the war, but her signing of the Official Secrets Act keeps him at a distance.
Brent Somerville, professor of theology at King’s College, hopes aiding his wife with her church consultations will help him better understand why she disappeared when he needed her most. But he must find a way to reconcile his traumatic experiences as a stretcher bearer on the European front with her obvious lies about her wartime activities and whereabouts.
Featuring a timeless love story bolstered by flashbacks and the excavation of a priceless Roman artifact, The London Restoration is a richly atmospheric look at post-war London as two people changed by war rebuild amidst the city’s reconstruction.

Happy Friday! My first line is from “To Love a Prince” by Rachel Hauck:
“It is said in the north country of Lauchtenland that the sea has a song and love blooms from the earth the same as flora and fauna.”

Ooh that book sounds SO good! I need to add that to my list!
Today on my blog I’m sharing from The Christmas Visitor an Amish novella from Amy Grochowski! “After a long trek to the veterinarian’s office, Mattie Beller was out of breath before she managed to push her scooter halfway up the steep hill to Annandale Farm.”
Have a lovely weekend!
