    One thought on “Wait for Me”

    1. I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss Yes, he was quite nice really For a German This was a YA historical romance story, set during World War II.Lorna was an interesting character, and she clearly worked hard on her father s farm and made sacrifices The storyline in this was about a German prisoner of war Paul being sent to work on Lorna s father s farm, and Lorna slowly coming around to the idea after initially disliking it We got a slow attracti [...]

    2. Loved this book I only read contemporary some of the time, but I was intrigued because of the era it was set in The characters all had their flaws and their uniqueness, and Paul after everything he has been through is such a sweetheart These people were just so brave to live during this time while everyone today is just worried about a selfie and I loved the history and everything else within these pages Full review on my blog literarydust.wordpress 20

    3. Abandoning ship at 20%How, just how, does a novel set in WWII with a German soldier straight up ignores the bloody Holocaust and all the lives lost, and turns into this generic love story War is a brutal, complicated and dreadful thing for all sides involved but this is a great disservice to all those who have fought and shed blood.

    4. A gripping, romantic tale set in 1945 Scotland, Leech s well researched historical YA novel explores a forbidden love affair between Lorna Anderson, a plucky 17 year old farm girl, and Paul Vogel, a German prisoner of war Written in lyrical, fluid prose, Leech captures the time period in amazing detail, with sharp dialogue, clever characterization, and delicious, slow burning romance Highly and enthusiastically recommended.

    5. Reviewed on 5171 Miles Book Blog.You all know by now how I love World War II novels, especially historical romance When I saw Wait for Me on Instagram a few months ago, I knew I had to give it a try I had never before read a YA historical romance, so I wasn t quite sure what to expect I mostly hoped it would not be a cheesy rendition of a love story.Lorna Anderson is a young Scottish girl who helps with a variety of things on her father s farm after her brothers leave for the war When a previous [...]

    6. Review I am a huge fan of World War II books so I was excited to see a new YA based one coming out.Lorna lives on a farm in Scotland in 1945 with her father and a farm helper Nellie while her two brothers are fighting in the war She goes to school and helps out with chores When Paul, a German prisoner of war, is assigned to work at the family farm Lorna finds it hard to accept his presence As time goes on and she learns about Paul though she finds it hard to stay away If she doesn t though she [...]

    7. This book is so winsome and charming The historical grounding of place and time is so immersive and well done, and while the tone is delightfully classic, the setting of a Scottish farm also makes it feel fresh I loved how Leech allowed her characters to explore the full implications of becoming friends and even falling in love with someone on the other side of a war She allows Lorna, Paul, and the people around them to struggle as they pick through the tangled roots of war and enemy, and explor [...]

    8. But we ll have tomorrow, Yes, we will have tomorrow Such simple words, yes But they tore me apart on the inside.I was transported to the past again and this time it was to Scotland while World War II was still happening At first, I really thought that this might not be suitable for all readers because WWII reminds us of holocaust and holocaust is such a really sensitive issue that might trigger something on the readers But I assure you, it wasn t Well, as far as I m concerned because what happen [...]

    9. 2.75Wait For Me is the WWII fiction that never delivered what I was expecting For so many ways, it led me down terribly But other than that, it was still an enjoyable read.I will first start by saying that while this book is set in WWII, in one of humanity s grimmest and most anxious times, it didn t feel like that AT ALL In fact, it felt like a chick lit fiction with people bustling about and giggling.Atmosphere is one of the most, if not the most, important aspect of a book It sets the tone an [...]

    10. I absolutely adored this book I fell so in love with the characters that I wanted to keep reading forever to see what happens to them The setting is incredibly vivid, and the author s note at the end shows how much time, attention, and love went into the details Read this book if you want to be swept away.

    11. This book was a delight to read It was so cool reading from a different perspective during the war, and learning what it was like in a place like Scotland That combined with a beautiful slow burn romance that will have you earning for , it makes for a great read 3

    12. I have been in a frenzy of wanting to read books about World War II, and upon knowing this book delivers me both World War II setting and a blossoming romance of two young adults I m a big fan of romance novels , I just couldn t pass it by To be honest, the first 2 or 3 chapters didn t hold much of my attention But as I read on and on, the story started to dawn on me I became absolutely invested in both the story and the characters The idea of falling in love with someone not only you but many o [...]

    13. Bleeeech If I had to describe this book in one word, I would probably choose corny Don t pick this up if you re looking for a moving historical fiction about finding love amidst the horrors of World War 2 Pick it up if you want to read a cheeseball teenage romance with only occasional mentions of those minor inconveniences during the war I read World War 2 historical fiction because I like reading about strong people who had to do hard things to survive during one of the most horrifying times in [...]

    14. This book reminded me how much I love historical fiction, and how eager I am to see of it in YA WAIT FOR ME arrived by magical ARC wings in the mail, and I wasted no time in brewing a wee cuppa tea, curling up in my worn out leather chair with my dog at my feet, ready to be transported to 1945 Scotland Our heroine is seventeen year old Lorna Anderson, whose two older brothers are away at war and whose father is weary in trying to keep their farm functioning Because of that, Lorna is doing all s [...]

    15. What a lovely book Set in Scotland during the last months of WWII in Europe, the story of Lorna and her German love was refreshing at times funny at times so moving, I wanted to underline every sentence Moments of fear and despair and anger are woven together with moments of pure delight and the deep feelings of first love Wonderful.

    16. This is one very good book I really enjoyed it I mean, it was super duper great I haven t read many books set in this time period, but even though it was fictional, it still seemed like I was in the year 1945.All the characters were very likeable well, at least the ones that I was supposed to like Don t get me going on one of the characters I could not stand him I really, really hope there is a story on Iris coming up Her story ended off on a kinda cliffhanger I could last without a book about h [...]

    17. I loved this historical debut so much Main character Lorna is living on her father s Scotland farm in 1945, as WWII is winding down When a German POW arrives to lend a hand with farm duties, Lorna is at once put off Her brothers are fighting for the Allies, and Lorna wants nothing to do with the enemy But as she gets to know Paul, she discovers he s not at all like the evil Nazis she initially grouped him with he s kind and smart and sensitive, and she begins to fall for him But being with a Ger [...]

    18. The kind of story and characters who stick with you long after you finish reading That was wonderful A lush, romantic and completely engrossing story set in wartime Scotland I went into this with no expectations and was instantly caught up in Lorna s story, the people who make up her family and small town, and the German POW who quietly captures her heart For those concerned about this being a Nazi romance, it s not.

    19. You can find the full review and all the fancy and or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight Wait for Me is such a lovely novel with a lot of good life lessons and messages Lorna is nearly eighteen, living with her father on a Scotland farm, her brothers off to war in WWII She s trying to decide what her next steps in life should be, as she prepares to finish school Of course her life is complicated, with her brothers at war, but when a German prisoner of war, Paul, is sent to w [...]

    20. Ahh I loved this book so much It s been a week since I ve read it and it s still on my mind I think that s a sign of a good book, if you re still thinking about it a week or months after you ve read it I picked this book up because of the beautiful cover and it was worth every dollar I spent This book is about a 18 year old Scottish girl, Lorna who falls in love with a German POW, Paul that is dumped on her family farm one morning to help work I think this book did a great job showing that no ma [...]

    21. Set in 1945 just before the end of World War II, Wait For Me is a novel about Lorna and her attempts to navigate through various relationships while living on a Scottish farm with a German prisoner of war as a farmhand Wait For Me was quite character focused, with the book mainly about the romance between Lorna and Paul as well as the relationship between Lorna and her best friend Iris.I think the only major negative to the book was the fact that basically all the male characters were portrayed [...]

    22. This beautifully crafted story had everything that I love in a book a vivid setting, well rounded characters and well crafted sub plots and that certain undefinable something a sense of longing and something bittersweet It was so perfect in so many ways the romance, the way it caputred divided loyalties and strains of a community that s been living under the shadow of war for such a long time Not a false note in the book just loved it.

    23. 3.5 STARSThis is a WWII teen romance that focuses mostly on a young lady, her friends her family, their farm, and the German solider who has come to work for them This felt like a genuine story there s even a note in the back saying that someone s parents had had a similar story with the way she fought with her best friend, her chores, and the different personalities that were all on the farm I wouldn t say this is slow paced, because there is always something happening in her life, just like an [...]

    24. This was really good, such a heartwarming story set in a very important time in history This was such a treat to read and it to be a YA.

    25. 3.5ish I can see other reviewers criticizing the book for being a nazi romance but I can also tell those people didn t read the book at all, and instead are just jumping on a bandwagon of misinformation or assumption, otherwise they d know that isn t the case at all here That being said, I felt the book was a bit of a shallow read for being set during such a tumultuous time, but I still found it to be an engaging story with MCs I cared about This showed both sides of war, and how young men are t [...]

    26. Excellent historical fiction for YA Based on real events, the author tells the story of Lorna, a Scottish young woman at the end of WWII living near a prisoner of war camp With men off fighting and labor left wanting, German and Italian prisoners were leased out for day work Here Lorna meets Paul, a former German soldier from Dresden, badly scarred from Normandy They strike up a close friendship in a village far too small to tolerate the humanity of the enemy Well written, rich with heart and hi [...]

    27. German prisoner of war aka Nazi Hard Pass What ever the argument about soldiers and being human is for nonfiction and history books Romance GTFO
