The Songbird and The Soldier by Wendy Lou Jones - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Sergeant Andrew Garrington, or Andy, met Sam for the first time during a holiday. The time they spent together meant a lot to Andy and he never forgot about Sam. He tried to find her when he got home but failed. During a night at the bar with his crew he hears someone sing beautifully. It turns out that it's Sam, the one he had to let go so many years ago. Can Andy finally be with the girl of his dreams?

Andy is going on a military mission to Afghanistan. He and his men are trained to handle these situations, but the missions stay dangerous. Andy and Sam start writing and it's through their beautiful letters that they get to know each other better. Andy has been married before and when his marriage ended badly he was devastated. His ex-wife betrayed him and it took Andy a lot of time to let someone in again. Sam is perfect in Andy's eyes but can she live up to these high standards? Will love be enough to conquer the war that's coming for them?

Andy and Sam are both beautiful people. Andy is such an honorable man and I loved reading the letters he writes to Sam. Andy is kind, considerate and loves with his whole heart. Sam is a teacher and still lives at home with her parents. She can be a bit naive at times, but she always has her best friends to rely on. Sam has a big heart and will not give up when she puts her mind to something. The Songbird and The Soldier brought back a lot of memories for me since my brother has been in the military as well. When he was sent out he and my sister-in-law wrote many letters to each other too and they still have them as a reminder of their love and to always have faith.

The Songbird and The Soldier is a stunning emotional story. It's about love, betrayal, friendship and being sent on a mission to a war zone. I love it when a book makes me feel many different things and really enjoyed The Songbird and The Soldier because of this. Wendy Lou Jones knows how to grab you with her amazing and unique stories. The Songbird and The Soldier felt so real and I loved every word. I did shed some tears while reading and I was anxious to keep going, while also scared to continue at the same time. The Songbird and The Soldier is an absolute must-read, it kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.

Advice

If you like to read raw and emotional romantic stories I highly recommend The Songbird and The Soldier.

About Wendy Lou Jones


I spent a happy childhood in West Sussex, where I studied hard at school and in my spare time, danced (ballet and jazz) and fell in love with guinea pigs.

I took Medicine at university and qualified as a doctor in 1994, working in various fields until I dropped out to have kids, several years later. How on Earth did I end up here, you ask? I do, frequently. Well, one night, in my late 30s, I had a dream. As simple as that. A dream that inspired me. And I’ve been reading and writing ever since.
