Review ~ An Hour Unspent (Shadows Over England #3) by Roseanna White

Paperback, 413 pages
Published September 4th 2018 by Bethany House Publishers
 Once London’s top thief, Barclay Pearce has turned his back on his life of crime and now uses his skills for a nation at war. But not until he rescues a clockmaker’s daughter from a mugging does he begin to wonder what his future might hold.

Evelina Manning has constantly fought for independence but she certainly never meant for it to inspire her fiancé to end the engagement and enlist in the army. When the intriguing man who saved her returns to the Manning residence to study clockwork repair with her father, she can’t help being interested. But she soon learns that nothing with Barclay Pearce is as simple as it seems.

As 1915 England plunges ever deeper into war, the work of an ingenious clockmaker may give England an unbeatable military edge—and Germany realizes it as well. Evelina’s father soon finds his whole family in danger—and it may just take a reformed thief to steal the time they need to escape it.


My Review 
5 STARS!!! 

Roseanna White has delivered another impressive and historically fascinating story. Set in 1915 London, it made my heart pound when I read about the airships dropping their bombs. I was captured by the detailed war atmosphere and I could feel the tension and fear fueling much of the cast of characters emotions and mindsets.

Barclay Pearce has undertaken great responsibilities with his ragtag family of orphans. I love how determined he is to instill a sense of security in each one and make sure that they are gently and lovingly cared for. He has a big heart, along with a compassionate and giving spirit. He has become one of my favorite fictional characters. 

There is so much more to this story, that I find it challenging to put the words on paper. Suffice it to say that if you are a fan of historical fiction filled with plenty of action, intrigue, forgiveness and renewal, you will enjoy An Hour Unspent, the thrilling conclusion to Shadows Over England series.
