About the book:
A brave midwife. A wounded pilot. A risky secret.
In the midst of World War II, Ireland has declared herself neutral. Troops found on Irish soil must be reported and interned, no matter which side they are fighting for. When midwife Nan O'Neil finds a wounded young Canadian pilot at her door, she knows she's taking a huge risk by letting him in. Not only is she a widow living alone, but if caught harboring a combatant, she'll face imprisonment.
Still, something compels Nan to take in "flyboy" Dutch Whitney, an RAF pilot whose bomber has just crashed over County Clare. While she tends to his wounds and gives him a secret place of refuge, the two begin to form a mutual affection-and an unbreakable bond.
But Nan has another secret, one that has racked her with guilt since her husband's death and made her question ever loving again. As Nan and Dutch plan his escape, can he help restore her faith?

I love reading historical fiction books set during the World War II and "Grounded Hearts" was a perfect read for me! Jeanne set the scene and tied in so many historical details into the storyline. Nan is a midwife, so she is used to helping people and when Dutch shows up at her door she cannot turn him away even though it is such a huge risk for her to take. Nan shows her strength and faith during this time of unrest, but her heart is still guarded and she is not quite ready to open her heart and reveal secrets that she is still holding tight to.
I really enjoyed this book. I was immediately swept into the story and into the lives of Nan and Dutch. Each of them were well-developed characters and their personalities really shone through making them easy to like and empathize with. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys historical fiction and historical romance.
