This is a great read! It kept me guessing who the bad guy was clear to the end. The devotion and love the husband had toward his wife only to have it rebuffed added to the suspense. Love and faith prevail in the end, but will they trust each other?

Spies, lies, murder, intrigue, revenge, a struggling marriage, a tentative faith found and a family united like never before. A Flute in the Willows may be a handful to read but the subject matter is certainly interesting. I do enjoy a spy-thriller with a subtle romantic twist and this one fits that bill. Carole Brown has done a good job with this the second in her The Spies of World War II series!

An engaging and emotional packed story of romantic suspense set post WWII era with Jerry and Josie Patterson. Josie was focused on her skating competitions and reaching for the stars while her husband was serving as a spy during the war. Jerry’s return home brought another man than the one she had fallen in love with, suffering from PTSD and the fear of being followed home because of all that transpired while serving in Germany. Jerry’s return also seemed to bring some newcomers to town. Josie is sought out by one of them, and asked to perform at his gatherings to raise money for a project by playing her flute. Will Jerry and Josie’s lives be spared? The story will keep readers turning page after page until the end to see what is transpiring next. Carole Brown weaved another great story filled with dimensional characters facing challenges to overcome as they are confronted from one episode after another that are disturbing and dangerous. The story has an interwoven Christian message that God is there in the midst of turmoil.

The Synopsis

Both rebels in their own way, Josie and Jerry Patterson must figure out how to keep the other’s love…and keep the German enemy at bay.

She has two loves—her skating and Jerry, her husband. But when he returns home looking like a skeleton trying to return to life, she’s scared. What happened in Germany to change a man so much? Has another woman captured his heart?

Jerry has vowed to let Josie live her own glamorous life…especially after what happened in Germany. But when his wife’s life is threatened, Jerry realizes he can’t stand by and do nothing. Jerry has to risk all for the very soul and life of himself—Josie.

These two damaged, rebellious people learn the hard way that leaning on God instead of their ownselves and abilities is the only true way to love and happiness.

Guest post from Carole Brown

How Great is Our God! By Carole Brown

And the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:7

It seems everywhere you turn today, the world is a mess. I try to keep up with current events, but sometimes I find myself pulling back away from it all. The enemy of us all would drown us in disbelief, doubt and worry if we would allow it. I find my spirit beginning to flounder in that sea of distress and must need to revive it with the good things of God.

This is Book Two

In my newest WWII Spies series, in book two, soon to be released, both Jerry and Josie Patterson are rebellious, self-centered people. Neither have given much thought to God, and both have gone gung-ho after their own pleasures and desires.


Jerry not only suffers a serious physical injury, but his spirit is troubled by actions taken as a spy in Germany. Guilt over the death of a sweet woman, guilt over all the deceit he needed to use, guilt over the temptations that knocked, and though he didn’t give in to them, nevertheless, troubles his mind and soul. Who do you turn to when you have no God in your life?


Josie, filled with elaborate plans on becoming an Olympic participant once the horror of war is over, ignores all the people in her life—except when it’s convenient for her to use them. All that matters is attaining her goal and Jerry. Running roughshod over all others, forgiving and forbearing as they are, is her usual ploy in getting what she wants. So who do you turn to when all your dreams turn to ashes?

It’s only after each one of them receives a severe injury that prevents them from doing what they want, only when they think they’ve lost the other, that they begin to listen to what God is teaching them.

Isn’t that so in our own lives? Many times we go headstrong toward our goals, without prayer or definite assurance from God that it’s what he wants for us. It seems a good thing, beneficial, and desirable so it must be good for us, right?

God is so great, so faithful, so loving in pulling us back, in teaching us that He is our all in all. Our strength in times of deep distress and trial, our anchor when the storms of life are blowing us off course, our shield when others would hurt or wound our spirits…our peace through it all.

May we, like Josie and Jerry, learn that our God IS a great God. We need have no fear; he does not fail.

For over fifty years I have laughed and cried through my life – it has been exciting, exhausting, emotional, challenging and infuriating. No one gave me a map or a ‘How to get out of stressful situations’ manual, to help me on my journey. Instead, it has been God and me, His Word and my mistakes. So let’s cut to the chase, I am a wife and mother of three almost adult children! I live in the South of England and dislike the rainy climate. Yes, it looks green but so does my face with little sunshine! With many occupations under my belt, I now spend my time writing – for my blog which includes book reviews, interviews some humorous pieces and a book called "How to Make Victoria Sponge." I also have some devotionals in a multi-author book "Heartwings Devotional. My life is hectic; I am disorganised, and God continually sorts me out. I hope my words bring you hope, comfort and laughter as I sit here in my dining room praying for inspiration and for the cat to get off my laptop!

  1. I haven’t read a spy story in quite a while and it sounds quite interesting. It also sounds like these two characters have a lot of growing up to do as well as pressing faith issues. This is one I’d love to read.
