*AD-Gifted: I was gifted a copy of In Her Sights in exchange for this post
As the girls are now getting older I’m finding some more time to read like I used to. One of my favourite genres is military history. So this historical fiction novel with a military twist, In Her Sights by John Kimbrey piqued an interest.
Set at the outbreak of the Great War, the story depicts a young woman from a Gloucestershire village, tired with the constraints of her life in Edwardian Britain.
In 1916, her brother, a weak and introverted man is called up for military service. She sees an opportunity to finally compete with men in their own world and formulates a plan to go to war in his place.
