Book Review of Hearts of Resistance by Soraya M. Lane

This book had been sitting on my shelf for a while before I decided to pick it up. I was looking forward to it. I love reading historical fiction, especially when they are set in WWII (one of my favorite time periods).

I’m not going to lie this book took awhile for me to get into. Now I don’t know if it was because I had a book hangover from the book I had finished right before it or not. It didn’t start getting interesting to me until all of the women, Hazel, Rose and Sophia got together. 

There were a few parts that grabbed my attention and were page turners but for the most part it was a little lackluster. Hearts of Resistance changes characters each chapter. It got a little confusing sometimes, I found myself flipping back to the beginning of the chapter to figure out who I was supposed to be following.

The one character that I enjoyed the most was Hazel. Something about her made me like her more than the other two. Rose and Sophia were both strong female characters but I just didn’t have that kind of draw to them that I did with Hazel. Whenever it would cut away to Rose or Sophia I kept wondering what was happening with Hazel. I will definitely say that she was my favorite of the three women.

The book did pick up in the second half and I enjoyed that much more than the first half. That is where most of the action happened. Overall it was a good book, I’m glad I read it but I don’t think it is one that I will be reading again.

I enjoyed the authors writing style, everything was polished and it flowed nicely. I will read more books from her in the future.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
