Bury the Living (The Revolutionary #1) by Jodi McIsaac

Nora has buried her father and her brother as casualties during the Irish revolution.  She's worked in refugee camps in Africa helping the injured.  Now she just wants to go on vacation and give her mind a break.  It breaks alright but not from rest...

Wunderkind PR sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published now, so you can grab a copy now.

This was an usual read for me.  It covers Irish history (which I know nothing of), and includes an eternal human/god and a goddess.  Without really realizing what she's doing, Nora agrees to go back in time to see if she can change the outcome of the war and save her brother in the future.  When she finds herself in 1923, she wonders if she should have come, but it's too late.

Her adventures in the past are very dangerous.  She almost gets raped and has to do some jail time.  She finds the man she wants but he doesn't know what she wants.  Since she's not sure either, it gets confusing.

She remembers her history of Ireland and attempts to change the outcome by saving the life of a leader who died.  It's not to be.  Changing the past isn't easy.  But it looks like she's going to have time to try again.  It will be interesting to see how this series evolves.

The historical part seems to be accurate and war is never pleasant.  But Nora and Thomas are still alive and willing to work together.  I don't think there's going to be any happy ever after together for them but it will be interesting to see what the gods do...
