Blog Tour \\ A Question of Honor

hello-from-the-pages-of-a-book

Today I am going to be a part of Jesseca Wheaton’s blog tour for her book, A Question of Honor!

I got to beta-read for this amazing book, and am SO excited to be a part of its release! Jesseca surely did an awesome job writing this. 😀

First, I have to give you a bit about the book and authoress:

a-question-of-honor-final-front-cover

A man. A child. A war.

When German soldiers invade France during World War II, young Joyanna’s perfect world is shattered. In the hands of those who hate her, she battles to comprehend why people can be so ruthless and cold toward those whom they have never met.

David Sullivan, pilot in the Royal Air Force, was certain he would never hate, but a painful loss forces him to either reconsider or do the inconceivable—forgive. He is suddenly challenged by the realization that doing God’s will is not easy, but most important. With the lives of freedom-fighters relying on him, he must learn the difficult lesson that he is not in control, but merely one who must surrender his heart of obedience to One greater.

A sudden turn of events lands Joyanna and David in the same country—but for far different reasons. When their paths cross, David finds he must make a decision that will affect them both for the rest of their lives. 
Will he choose vengeance, or will he let his life be ruled by a higher standard? A standard of Honor.

My Review:

First off, amazing job on this book, Jesseca! I loved the plot twists (ya kinda scared me with one of them), and action, adventure, and the message that you twisted beautifully in with the plot.

My favorite character has to be either…Joyanna or Gil. 😉 I love them both. Julia’s poem in the beginning there – it really described the story very well (and great poem, Ju! I loved it

I just can’t tell you guys how much I love this book. As soon as it comes out on Amazon (6-8 weeks), I WILL BUY IT! I want to have A Question of Honor and Martin Hospitality sitting on the same shelf together.

If you want a clean, Christian read with great writing, I suggest A Question of Honor. 🙂

I am also going to be doing an author interview!! I had a lot of fun asking the questions and receiving her answers. 🙂

The Interview:

1. Who is your favorite character in A Question of Honor?

Micah. Hands down. Micah is literally me, only from a male point of view. I can relate to him in so many different areas, whether it be his slightly sarcastic, dry sense of humor, to his interest in medicine, and the way he notices small details about people. No, he’s not a main character in this book, but in the next book . . . well, I’ll just say he gets some more time on the pages. 😉
2. Who made your cover for the book (I love it SOOOO much!!)?
 

Eepppsss, isn’t it?! I love it so much, too!! ^_^ I had Kaitlyn Krispense from Twin Thoughts design it. She is an AMAZING cover designer, and I would highly recommend her! 

3. Did you have to do a lot of research for the book?
 
I did end up having to do a lot more research than I originally planned at the beginning of the book. The smallest details were the hardest to research, because I couldn’t seem to find them anywhere! I mean, with a whole war going on, who paid attention to the pound/dollar ratio, or where the different men bunked, or how they got around. xD One of the best tools in my research was reading books that were complied letters from soldiers who had fought in Europe. Those were super helpful! 
 
 
4. How long do you think it took you (from first draft to last draft) to finish A Question of Honor?
 
Well, as best I can tell, I started the story in the end of May/beginning of June, 2015. (I really should try and take better notes… ) It was then finished during NaNo 2015, and since then has gone through many edits and changes.
When the book releases on the 3rd, it will have been approximately one year and ten months since I jotted down the first words.
 
5. Did you come up with the name of the book before or after you wrote it?
 
This is gonna sound so, so terrible . . . but I actually don’t remember when I came up with the name. I think I came up with it after I had written the first couple chapters. I normally like to have a title in mind first, since it kinda helps keep me focused on what the story is about. 😉
