5.0 out of 5 starsHistorical war romance
Reviewed in the United States on August 17, 2019
Broken Pearl is a captivating historical war romance set in 1941 Hawaii. The story is well written, the characters are believable and well developed. I loved how descriptive the writing is and how as I read the story I felt as if I was right there going through everything with the characters. This is a beautiful, heartbreaking and emotional story full of action, danger, romance and unexpected twists that pulled me into the story. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Broken Pearl, very well written, by Dawn Brower, is a powerful emotional story!
The year is 1941 and paradise is a way of life in Hawaii, where Rebecca O'Shea, a naval nurse, is loving her life, until death and destruction cause chaos and war! It was her dream to be a nurse, but now she has feelings and premonitions of death and darkness. Some scenes are very emotional! I shed some tears during some scenes. She will embark, with her friends, specially Joel, on a journey of real darkness. As the Japanese bomb her home, her gift explodes within her. Loss and pain become her new way of life. She abandons all hope and shuts down her empathic abilities. At least, as a nurse, she feels that she is helping others. A journey filled with twists and turns!
The historical research, for Broken Pearl, was well done and nicely written. But it's so emotional!

On a trip into the lives of nurses that were in Pearl Harbor on the day of Destruction that changed our history forever. Dawn has written a wonderful story that has the back drop of war with just the right amount of fantasy mixed into it. You don't want to miss this one!!
