​(I received an ARC from the EDELWEISS in exchange for an honest review.)

Rating: ★★★1/2

Nine historical fiction writers get together and put out an anthology of love stories set in World War I.  Each story is a standalone from each other and for me some stories were a bit stronger than others.  While almost every author is on my TBR list, I have not yet read anything by these authors. Lauren Willig and Beatriz Williams have moved up on my list and I am looking forward to Heather Webb, Hazel Gaynor and Jennifer Robson's novel.   This is a perfect collection for those who are interested in historical fiction, light on romance war tales, or women during World War I.  These women write primarily historical fiction so if you are interested in the genre this is one way to see how the authors write.  Fall of Poppies is also a great book to keep nearby when you only a moment to read.
