Sacrifices is an historical romance novel by Kim Knight. I've previously read a few of the author's books, but this latest one sounded quite intriguing, so I moved it further up the list. Timely, poignant, and charming, it offers a wonderful balance between the past and the present.

Jane and Louis fell for one another in a crowded room. Though everything would be tougher, their love was meant to be, until it wasn't. A sultry jazz singer who happens to be a white woman in the early 1960s. A hands

It could have been a great story but It is not, in my opinion.

Be ready for a few tears romance fans, because this smooth reading tale covers an entire life of ups and downs, a love lost to time and dreams, the struggles of raising a child as a single mother, and more, much much more. It bounces around from timeframes, which is a hard feat to master as a writer, but Kim does it so very smoothly. The way it’s laid out and the journey is uncovered one step at a time, draws the perfect picture and emotions. All the while only giving the reader one savory bite ...more

True love has no time limit

Sacrifices was such a good book. I enjoyed each page and really got in deep with the characters. I kept turning page after page to see what happens next. I am so emotionally involved. I am glad Jane and Louis finally got their happy ever after. But i am also mad that neither one of them reached out to the other in 25 years. Also i am disappointed that neither one took responsibility and understood where Jenelle was coming from being in the middle. Louis is pissed becau

Captivating and timely. Knight delivers a classic tale of love and social expectations when the world needs it most. Louis and Jane meet and fall in love in London at the height of the Jazz era, despite the contrasting color of their skin. With the Civil Rights movement kicking into gear in the States, these two burgeoning artists find themselves forced to make tough choices that will send shock waves reverberating through their lives for years to come.

I have reviewed other book by this author, and Although I enjoyed them, this book is my favorite. You meet Jane O’Sullivan. She is a jazz singer living in London and she meets Louis Simpson, a black jazz musician from Mississippi. They meet and fall fast, but promises end up being broken and they are separated. more than 20 years later they are reunited unexpectantly on a cruise ship. The story is told through the eyes of both characters.

Wow. I was able to feel the emotions from both characters
