's review

it was amazing

Told in three distinct parts, N.R. Walker's entry in the Christmas Angels series brings the story firmly into the remembered memories of Woodstock, the Vietnam War and a time before the rights of gay men were recognised the same as everyone else.

We're in the heart of the New Age movement at the music festival which saw more than 400,000 people come together to celebrate peace.

Here is where Gary, a hippie on his way to the festival, first encounters soldier Richard. This section of the book is full of the heady joys of new love.

The central section is letters between the young men, a chilling insight into the horrors faced in the jungles of the Far East and the growing changes happening in the USA in and around San Francisco and Silicon Valley.

And then we get the rest of this powerfully emotional story, which I won't spoil, other than to say it has all the things I expect from this author. There are strong female characters, there is some pain, there is all the feels and, finally just when you think she's been forgotten, there is our Christmas Angel.

I loved everything about this romance, Gary and Richard's youthful ideals, their fears of separation, their joys at reunion.

#ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.
