The Spy Novel That Made Me Cried



Book Review by Eddy (Read Time 1 min)



This book deserves to be 2019’s best book of the year. Spy by Danielle Steel is such a well written, detailed, and page-turner novel. It’s about a young woman named Alexandra Wickham who volunteer to serve in World War 2, she was given the choice to become a spy and forever change her life. The book is filled with action-pack adventure, humor, romance, and is especially a super tearjerker. Get ready for one heck of a read and have tissues at the side.

Danielle portrays Alexandra as a well-rounded character. She is a brave, determined, clever, charming, and talented woman. She shows no fear when taking up new challenges and yet she’s such a sweetheart. This book is easy to read and understand. After finishing the book, I feel a sense of sadness of why the book had to end so fast and it didn’t feel like I was reading at all. Every sentence and paragraph played like a movie in my head and it was hard to put the book down. One lesson I learned from the book is, always follow your dreams and trust your guts.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot and will give it a second read. I still can’t get enough of how good the book was and it will have a place in my shelf. I recommend this book to everyone, whether you’re a beginner or advanced reader this is a must-read. Hope you all enjoy my review of the spy and don’t forget to pick up a copy.

Synopsis From the Book

Spy by Danielle Steel is the page-turning story of a fearless young woman risking everything for what she believes in.
It is 1939 and although she doesn’t know it, it will be the last normal summer Alexandra Wickham will spend for more than thirty years. Alexandra is a young woman who sees her brothers fight and die for their country, and, inspired by their heroism, she is determined to do what she can for the war effort.
As a volunteer for the First Aid Corps, her courage, intelligence and talent for languages do not go unnoticed. Before long, she is approached by MI6 to go undercover and work as a spy. Undertaking some of the most dangerous missions of the war in France, she falls in love with a young soldier, who leaves the army behind for the relative security of the diplomatic corps. They marry, but her identity is a secret, even to her husband.
Over the next thirty years – as she raises a family - Alexandra continues to work undercover in some of the most dangerous trouble spots in the world under the perfect guise of a diplomat’s wife. From India to Hong Kong, Morocco to Moscow, she puts her life on the line serving her country, whilst never receiving recognition.

“I believe it is what you do with that time that helps you learn how to coexist with the death of your children”
The thought of losing your child can be horrifying, but how do you cope with it when it does happen? Journey to Healing by Lisa K. Boehm is a heart and soul’s guide to help aid with loss, sorrow, and grief. Lisa lost her only daughter Katie in a car accident at the age of 17, shock in trauma Lisa knew she had to move on in life without Katie. She shares her experience of how to accept pain and sorrow by living a life that will honor her daughter.

My first impression was, I’m going to read about a person’s journey to healing, but I didn’t look carefully to notice “a mother’s guide to navigating child loss”. Still, I decided to give this book a ch…

Live in The Moment

Practicing the Present
The Neglected Art of Living in the New
By John Koessler
“Practicing the present does not ignore the future or the past. But it does view both with a measure of sanctified skepticism”

           Practicing the Present by John Koessler is more than a book that contains instructional guides on how to practice the present, it brings the reader closer to the presence of God. Within each chapter, John gives specific stories or references from other sources that tie into the lesson he’s teaching. You’ll be learning so many different aspects of practicing the present such as, common gestures can go a long way, becoming aware of mundane spaces in our life’s, leading between the past and future, and so many more.

Pacing of the book is expository, because John is imparting valuable information and guides to the readers. The stories that tie to the lessons are great, they are short and sweet. The writing style of the book is easy to comprehend and there are multiple concepts t…
