Erica Vetsch created a beautiful story in The Lost Lieutenant. Although, I’ve never read any books by Vetsch, I was pleasantly surprised.
As a military spouse, I was eager to read this romance novel with a military flair. The book has a unique combination of suspense, danger, and love which kept me intrigued to learn what’s next.
The characters of Evan and Diana were excellent and I was able to easily identify with this couple. The story grabs your attention from the very beginning. Erica Vetsch leads you on the journey between this couple that has numerous setbacks and obstacles, but they work together to overcome them.
While Evan was struggling to regain lost memories and recover from his battle injuries. I was reminded of my personal experience with my husband returning home from deployments and suffered from what seemed like PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) type symptoms. And this coupled, with the challenge of reintegration to the family is already difficult enough.
And then Diana had her own secrets regarding her abuse that led to mistrust and emotional strain; however, their commitment to restoring White Haven, their new home.
The Lost Lieutenant was an excellent reminder that honesty and trust is vital in a relationship. And when there’s a strong commitment, trust, and faith ~ you can survive anything.
If marriages were honored today as it was in this story, how much more would the sanctity of marriage bring honor to God?
ABOUT THE BOOK
Evan Eldridge never meant to be a war hero–he just wanted to fight Napoleon for the future of his country. And he certainly didn’t think that saving the life of a peer would mean being made the Earl of Whitelock. But when the life you save is dear to the Prince Regent, things can change in a hurry.
Now Evan has a new title, a manor house in shambles, and a stranger for a bride, all thrust upon him by a grateful ruler. What he doesn’t have are all his memories. Traumatized as a result of his wounds and bravery on the battlefield, Evan knows there’s something he can’t quite remember. It’s important, dangerous–and if he doesn’t recall it in time, will jeopardize not only his marriage but someone’s very life.
Readers who enjoy Julie Klassen, Carolyn Miller, and Kristi Ann Hunter will love diving into this brand-new Regency series filled with suspense, aristocratic struggles, and a firm foundation of faith.
