This is How I’d Love You by Hazel Woods and GIVEAWAY

Publish August 26, 2014 by Plume

As the Great War rages, an independent young woman struggles to sustain love—and life—through the power of words.

It’s 1917 and America is on the brink of World War I. After Hensley Dench’s father is forced to resign from the New York Times for his anti-war writings, she finds herself expelled from the life she loves and the future she thought she would have. Instead, Hensley is transplanted to New Mexico, where her father has taken a job overseeing a gold mine. Driven by loneliness, Hensley hijacks her father’s correspondence with Charles Reid, a young American medic with whom her father plays chess via post. Hensley secretly begins her own exchange with Charles, but looming tragedy threatens them both, and—when everything turns against them—will their words be enough to beat the odds?

My Thoughts…

Being an 18 year old heading to a whole new world with her father during WWI, Henley’s life is turned upside down.    Henley is a character I loved.  I could relate to her on so many levels.    The fact that she was uprooted from the life she knew was the first thing that I related to, I moved when I was 16 to a new town.    From there her life just reflected so many things that I went through; I cannot share them as it will ruin the story for you.   Hazel Woods did an amazing job portraying how an 18 year old would talk and react to the things thrown her way.  

I found that this is a true romance story with a twist of history thrown into the pages.    WWI is a great era to read about and this book seemed true to the war and how life was on the front lines and how life was at home.   I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves to write and receive letters, enjoys a great romance story, and enjoys the WWI era.
