***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Lieutenant Robert Fitzgerald has managed to retain his sanity, his humanity, and his honor during the hell of WWI’s trench warfare. Charlotte Braninov fled the shifting storm of the impending Russian Revolution for the less-threatening world of field camp medicine, serving as a nurse in the most hopeless of fronts. Their friendship creates a sanctuary both could cling to in the most desperate of times. Historical fiction about life, loss, and love, By the Hands of Men explores the power that lies within each of us to harm – or to heal – all those we touch.
Mr. Griffis does a terrific job of writing a story that makes you feel like you are right along the front line or in the hospital as this story unfolds. You feel all the devastation and tragedy that the war brings. There is also the tragic story of two people who fall in love during the devastation only to be have to conquer many obstacles.
The characters in this story written beautifully. You will feel the heartache, devastation, love, and the loss right alongside each and everyone. You will cheer in the good times and cry during the devastation. I felt a connection to each and every character that you came across in this story.
If you want a story that feels authentic and is beautifully written then I recommend this read. You will be enthralled from the first page to the last. I can’t wait to read book two.
