The Officer’s Wife
1939 – American heiress Vivi Miles falls for naval officer Nathan as soon as she arrives in England. And, under the threat of war, they marry in a whirlwind before he leaves to join his ship.
When Nathan returns from Dunkirk injured, he is distant, aloof, and no longer the man Vivi fell in love with. But it’s not just because of his brutal experiences of war. Nathan has a secret and Vivi suspects it’s linked to the mysterious evacuee at the secluded house in the woods on his Kent estate.
As war continues to rage, Vivi battles her own grief and loneliness, and tries to find out the truth of the girl’s identity, uncovering a scandal from the past.
Is her love for Nathan strong enough to survive?

REVIEW ~ NIKI PRESTON ~ 4 STARS
First things first, Wow what a gorgeous cover. It definitely catches your eye and you just want to dive in. I don’t often mention the Cover but this one really stands out.
Anyway back to the book. Set in WW2 and based around the rather stunning American heiress Vivi Miles as she moves the the UK and we follow how her life changes far beyond anything Vivi could have imagined; and just what is going on in the cottage with the woods? Intrigue aplenty. I was quickly immersed in this story of friendship, love and family. The characters are written superbly well and are all realistic in the trials and tribulations they have to endure at this terrible time.
The history and it’s accuracy only serves to add to the drama unfolding. Ever the Lady in every sense, Vivi conducts herself in the only way she knows, with honesty and integrity. Nobody knows when love will strike, when strong bonds will be formed and whether forgiveness with be forthcoming. I can not explain further without there being huge spoilers so I heartily recommend you go and grab a copy of this beautiful book and immerse yourself in the drama of WW2 and beyond. Find out how it all turns out for Vivi, her husband, her friends, her family, her future.
