Ella’s Promise – Book Review

Ella's PromiseElla’s Promise, by Ellen Gable, is the third in a series of romance novels set during World War I, in France. In this third book, Ella Neumann volunteers as a surgical nurse in war-torn France, only to quickly learn that her surgical nursing skills are unwanted. It seems that because she comes from German heritage, discrimination prevents her from making the most of her skills. Albeit, that Ella is American, her supervisor does not trust her, as Ella is fluent in both German and English. Instead, Ella’s supervisor assigns her to work in the Prisoner of War ward. It is here that Ella meets undercover agent Garrett Smith, a Canadian spy for the allies.

Will Ella ever get to use her surgical skills in the operating theater? Will Garrett’s cover be protected? Or will he suffer the tragedies of war? Will the ignited spark of love, lit in the Prisoner of War ward, lead to something lasting? Or will the flame die out like everything else in this blasted war? To get the answers to these questions, you will need to read this enchanting novel by Ellen Gable.

This story line is engaging, suspenseful and romantic. Gable keeps you on the edge of your seat. You will find yourself turning one page after another to see not only how the romance will blossom, but also how Garrett and Ella will survive the ugliness of war. This third book in the series did not disappoint. It is as good as the first and second books, Julia’s Gifts and Charlotte’s Honor. I highly recommend getting all three, as a set, for the romance novel lover in your life. They would make for an excellent Christmas present! To get your copy of Ella’s Promise, click here.
