An Ocean atween Us

About the book: Will Glover is the hottest collier lad ever to come out of Scotland. Like Angela Morrison's contemporary titles, TAKEN BY STORM and SING ME TO SLEEP, Will's story is a tale of first love and heartbreak, related in intimate, first person detail. Just as Will's soul entwines around Lucie, the blooming pit village lass he's always known and never truly seen, a mysterious stranger arrives at the pits with an offer Will's father can't refuse. Hardship, tragedy and broken hearts ensue. After decades of research and rewriting, award-winning author, Angela Morrison, brings you a story inspired by her own emigrant heritage. AN OCEAN ATWEEN US is an intriguing mix of modern young adult novel and sweeping historical romance. It is the first book in Angela's WE, GLOVER'S series, a family saga written in first person, coming-of-age narratives, from one generation to the next.

My review: This book was really good. I enjoyed reading things from Will's perspective, he was an interesting character. He loved his life in Scotland, including Lucie, and wasn't happy when he realizes that his father has basically sold his life to a mine boss in a different county and he would be moving, leaving Lucie behind for who knows how long. I like that he was trying to find a solution for himself and Lucie and that he wanted to remain a good Church boy and not take advantage of Lucie in order to trick her father into letting her marry him. I really liked that Will was able to kind of come to terms with his life and what it always would be in the end. 

I thought this book was well-written, I liked the characters and the plot was good. I can't wait to learn what happens next for Will and his family!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
