REVIEW: Camelia Miron-Skiba hit a couple of heart strings with this book. It starts out with flipping between the past and present lives of Major David Hunt and Lieutenant Cassandra Toma.
War is a heavy theme and strong background to this book. Cassandra is no stranger to war and all it implies. She is a smart and strong military officer who is sassy, bold, and brass. She seems to come across as a person who loves deeply and would do anything for those people. One such person is her brother who has come home after a tour of duty.
David arrives to Romania on assignment and meets Cassandra and what he believes is her husband. Truth is, the love between siblings is just a major miscommunication.
These two didn't get along in the beginning and the only thing they really respected was each other as military doctors. Their worlds kind of collide when they are forced to work together which turns into a friendship with the hint of a real relationship, if only David didn't believe she was married and off limits. These two just can't seem to get on the same page.
After finding out the truth of Cassandra's marital status and feeling a bit overwhelmed, he joins the war in Iraq. Without giving too much away, this is where the story really takes a turn. Strong war time fear and tension hit everyone hard when the stakes are high and they have everything to lose.
I wouldn't even know where to place this book on a shelf. It's not overly romantic and it's also not jam packed action. I guess it would fall under drama. Lots and lots of drama.
Camelia Miron-Skiba has written this book from the heart and let people into a war filled world full of heroes, tragedy, love, and pride. It is an excellent read for anyone who enjoys military stories. The author is what I would call a "smart" writer. She tells a story that needs to be absorbed rather than just words that are read. A World Apart is exciting and passionate while also being raw and real.
This book was received free of charge for the purpose of a review.
