Michael Macready is the main protagonist and point of view character.

Bonds of Earth

Open Preview See a Problem? I totally agree with everybody that those two chapters are letting the story down. Byy hung on every work, every sentence, hoping for them. As a friend of Michael said to him: Finding this just too hard to finish at the moment. I LOVE the elegance of black and white — and it doesn’t feature any men at all I love the men, but a change is nice once in awhileit looks like a cover for mainstream novel.

Review: Bonds of Earth by G.N. Chevalier | CSI: Librarian

This is not a ‘civil war’ story, nor is it a ‘wild west’ story so why DSP have put gn.chevaliier under those categories is anyone’s guess. While there, he meets the nephew of the matron who owns the estate, John Seward.


I was provided a galley of this from NetGalley. Both heroes have suffered actual damage from the war–not the glamorous kind that turns novel characters into saints, but the real kind that rips apart families and leads to ugly, self-destructive behavior.

I’m not a fan of this timeperiod so I didn’t expect to like the book as much as I did and I was having bad luck picking Dreamspinner books so it’s mostly due to snowtulip I’ve read this one. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. In an accurate historical setting this was a tale of two physically and emotionally damaged men finding love and comfort in a less than welcoming bond.

But the book ends in and I can’t help wondering how Michael and John are going to cope with WW2! The giving of a book does not in any way guarantee a favourable review. Not keen on the pacing or the historical detailing, feels more modern.

Bonds of Earth, by G.N. Chevalier « Gerry B’s Book Reviews

This author needs to write more. Michael is a wonderful character.

He and John find their battle of wills turning into something stronger, but fear may keep them from finding hope and healing in each other. There is just so much to this story that I can only describe it as multi-faceted and I don’t know which facet I enjoyed more.

Personally, I would have preferred that the final part of the yn.chevalier, after the time jump, be left for a sequel – the characters had become different bknds understandably by the time five years had passed and by the time I felt used to them again, the boo Really great debut novel. As the story heats up emotions getting messy and alive the prose does fill out more, leaning a little towards purple compared to what has come before. How I would rate it: The period detail is so complete it immerses the reader in American life after the Great War, and yet it’s so skillfully integrated that it never overshadows the characters and the story.


No trivia or quizzes yet. Michael was once a flourishing medical student, but the war did a number on him, and when he came back home, he didn’t care what happened to him.

God, this book was just so good. AND I’m glad that I did read it!

Healing took effort and time. My only beef is that the pacing somewhat slows down in the last quarter, to add some sexy times and then some conflict. It’s so worth it.

But, for some reason, she ends the book bondss the middle of a sex scene, which put me off and disappointed me. The book is full of details that just feel authentic, all incorporated naturally without that aroma of the research note that too often distracts me in historical novels. Though there’s certainly moments that bring a reaction.
