A lovely debut novel by Lori Oestreich. I know Lori but this is my honest review of her book. In this 1930's historical, she takes on the differences that separate people and lets love overcome the obstacles. What was really special to me was that the story is based on her grandparents' real love story. Elegant prose and vivid descriptions. I look forward to her next novel! ...more

Lori Oestreich’s debut historical romance, DARLING, ALL MY LOVE, takes readers back in time to a 1930’s rural America most of us have only heard about from our parents and grandparents.

Reading Darling All My Love was such a lovely fresh of air. Lily and Benjamin's story is one of a couple destined to be together but so many obstacles stand in their way.
I enjoyed the 1930's setting. The author's attention to historical detail was evident throughout the book. I hope there will be more stories to follow so I can get lost again in the world of Hub City, WI.
