Nick Kilby was a World War I ace, a hero, now an airmail pilot, a man who could risk his life, but never risk his heart. Victoria Robinson is a young nurse with the skill and the heart to care for the wounded soldiers on the front lines. After witnessing the horrors of war, it is in her hometown, that she learns of a deeper pain and injustice encompassing the lives of the women of Hagers Lake.

Her face was so still and so translucently pale she barely looked alive. Purple shadows lay beneath her eyes. Wet gossamer strands of inky, dark hair were glued to her bloodless cheeks. As Amy gently brushed her sister’s matted hair away from her hot sticky face, Lorrie whimpered pitifully. Amy! Oh, Amy, it hurts! she sobbed.

But Melanie's story is also about looking into the past. Byatt's Possession and loved it, and this book was partly inspired by the same exploration of private documents, though Stockholm Diaries, Melanie is certainly a much steamier and less literary version of this plot!

I held hope Dad would go easy on me. I still hadn’t seen him since he went red after seeing me on the front page of the newspaper t be home because he had a meet. I still hadn’t seen him since he went red after seeing me on the front page of the newspaper t be home because he had a meeting with his superiors. Yeah, I was in deep trouble. Voices trickled down the hall. The hushed whispers were too low for even my vampire hearing. The only thing I could make out was Dad’s deep baritone.

Nick Kilby was a World War I ace, a hero, now an airmail pilot, a man who could risk his life, but never risk his heart. Victoria Robinson is a young nurse with the skill and the heart to care for the wounded soldiers on the front lines. After witnessing the horrors of war, it is in her hometown, that she learns of a deeper pain and injustice encompassing the lives of the women of Hagers Lake. After the War, hero-pilots were an unnecessary commodity. There were few avenues in which to pursue flying, and most of them were highly dangerous. While it wasn?t as glamorous, flying the mail for the U.S. Postal Service wasn?t any less deadly. The death rate among the Post Office pilots was one in six. In dangerous weather, flying refitted World War I fighters, these men risked their lives, and in the process, developed many of the innovations in aviation still in use today. While at a terrible cost, the War had also seen innovations in medicine and treatment, innovations whose scope was expanding on the homefront. It was Victoria?s hope to bring these new ideas to her hometown. However, old ways and old ways of thinking die hard. Reluctantly, both people become crusaders and pioneers in a time and era when progress and innovation are the bywords of the day. The maelstrom of issues and events in post-WWI America bring together two people who confront life from opposite emotional poles. Through crisis, they forge new meaning for their lives. Finally, together, Kilby and Victoria face a destiny that will alter their hearts and their lives and change the face of America. While the events and characters are strictly the author?s invention, this work of fiction is based on historical fact. The story would appeal to anyone who enjoys historical romance, a story that reveals the danger and adventure, in the sky and on the ground, in the era when flight was born.

Victoria is a very strong brave woman but reserved in how she reaches out for love. She is a woman of convention who respects the traditions of the day to wait for love to come to her and doesn't mess with the social manners of the day.

Kilby could be a stronger character by showing more passion for his love of Victoria. He shows his love only fleetingly when he encounters Victoria and it seems other distractions such as his work always takes precedence over his true love. He is such a tease.

The story could have ended differently by Victoria refusing Kilby's advances and apologies but was glad the novel didn't end this way. Maybe there's another storyline with their children and Kilby's success? Would highly recommend Face of Destiny as it's a fast read.

"So, you're going to stop flying...... Women in love are very possessive. They don't want their man going off and getting killed." Kelby turned back to his glass and took a swallow of scotch. "Your Dorothy won't be any different. Once she's got you nailed down, she'll nail your feet to the floor." This was Kelby's take on women and love.

What does a World War I pilot do with his life after the war? Answer - If you're Nick Kelby you go to work for the US Postal Service as an airmail pilot. Sure the risks are great. The odds of survival are very low. Between the conditions of the planes and the lack of a decent weather forecast the chances of surviving are very slim. But if your love for flying and adventure are as great as Kelby's, you live for the challenge. Kelby has had his dance with death through crashing his planes. Will his luck run out when he crashes in a field in Ohio or will he survive to fly again?

Victoria is a nurse who runs a local clinic in the town of Hagers Lake, Ohio. She served her time as a nurse during the war and is now ready to settled back in her hometown to take on the cuts, broken bones and sometimes birthing of babies. But that isn't all she finds as she performs her duty of taking care of the people of her little town. Victoria knows the pains and death of war but is she prepared to handle the beatings administered by a drunken husbands inflict on their wifes and kids? And can she save them from the possibility of beatings that could easily turn into death? Victoria's life plate is full with her devotion to her work but she soon finds there is room for more when Kelby crashes his plane into her life.

I really enjoy a book that entertains me as well as teaches me. Face of Destiny is one that has done both. This book was very well researched and it shows through the story itself and the history of the Airmail pilots and the conditions of life after World War I.

The love story between Kilby and Victoria is wonderful. All the characters are very nicely fleshed out and interesting, especially the conflicts between the MacCrackens and the Crowleys. It really makes you think of what life was like after WWI and the hardships women had to go through.

The facts that are mixed with the fiction are very concise without being boring. I couldn't put the book down and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I am looking forward to reading any and all books this author writes, and can't wait for her next one. She has written a great Historical Romance and you will find it totally enjoyable.
