Wickwythe Hall, by Judithe Little is an amazing story set during WWII. The collection of real and fictional characters weave emotion and tactical maneuvers into a compelling story about surviving Hitler’s siege. I felt like I was watching an old black and white film, starring Katherine Hepburn as Marbry. I love the rich history woven into the novel along with the very real dialogue. The author does a wonderful job of combining the thoughts and movements of her characters, and is careful to balance the fictional love story with the actual history of WWII. If you love Doctor Zhivago, you will love Little’s smooth flowing tale of a Virginia heiress, a champagne businessman, a French refugee and so much more.
