She calls him Wolf, having watched him grow from a careless young boy into a fearsome warrior, and she trusts him with her life and her heart.

Separated across an ocean, the bond they share nevertheless grows as they sense each other’s pain, lend each other strength, and embark on a journey of the spirit to find and love one another at long last…

She feels connected to Andrew, a man who she’s never met and who frequently appears in her visions and dreams since she was a little girl. But Maggie isn’t the only one who has this remarkable ability; Andrew can take a glimpse into Maggie’s life as well.
Tragedy strikes with the death of her father, and Maggie is in desperate need of Andrew’s help. Will Andrew travel thousands of miles away to rescue someone he has never met?
My favorite element of Under The Same Sky was the paranormal edition to the novel. I have recently become intrigued with historical romance novels and Under The Same Sky was no exception. I definitely appreciate the paranormal elements Genevieve Graham incorporated into the story as it is my favorite genre. The plot was captivating and the characters had emotional depth. I also enjoyed getting to know both characters’ background, and could clearly imagine the two much different worlds they each seem to live in.
Under The Same Sky is a remarkable debut by Genevieve Graham. There is much more than meets the eye of this historical romance novel. Genevieve Graham has created a unique spin on the “although thousands of miles apart, love prevails all” cliche. With a hint of paranormal elements in addition to the large dose of romance, readers are sure to enjoy this incredible tale.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, and I would definitely recommend Under The Same Sky to anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction and Paranormal titles.
An Enjoyable Read, Well Written, Recommended
