Review: A Fire Sparkling
January 31, 2021

I’m such a sucker for London Blitz novels right now so when I saw the cover for A Fire Sparkling by Julianne MacLean, I knew I had to devour it.

And devour it, I most definitely did.

Readers are transported back and forth between 2011 U.S. and WWII era London, switching back and forth between the POV’s of a heartbroken woman and that of her grandmother’s wartime life. Wonderfully written with a gripping story, I loved, loved, loved this book.

Exploring themes of identity and fortitude, A Fire Sparkling checks a lot of boxes of many historical fiction fans: multiple POV’s, interesting female characters, exciting spy stuff, and a weep-worthy ending. (Yes, I cried.)

(After reading it, I realized MacLean is from Nova Scotia, the same Canadian province that I’m originally from. Just an interesting aside.)

Excellent book, highly recommend!

RATING: 5/5 stars

praise for jillianne

Jillianne has done a fabulous job creating a loveable and down-to-earth heroine in Molly Miranda and followed through with a really strong plotline packed full of twists and turns.
Holly at Bookaholic Confessions
Hamilton handles the story with a deft touch, balancing action, laugh-out-loud zingers and romance with zippy pacing and a character you can really root for.
