Item Description...
From the links of St. Andrews, Scotland, to the blitz of London in World War II, RAF pilot Eric MacKenzie embarks on a dark journey of the soul as he battles the Nazis, personal loss, and bitterness. Evading the bombing raids and her own distressing realizations, American nurse Annie Little finds refuge and renewed faith at the Kilns, home of C.S. Lewis. Eric and Annie reveal their turbulent love story decades later when their daughter Natalie and Lord Stuart Devereux seek wisdom for their own future.

Unforeseen tragedy, unplanned pregnancy, and undermined faith lead to hope, commitment, and restoration in this compelling prequel to Inklings and Expectations, that will enthrall romance readers, history buffs, and devotees of Lewis and Tolkien alike.

Awesome--esp. if you enjoy WWII  Sep 14, 2007
If you liked and read the first two books in this series, then you will not be disappointed.

I hope there are more to come!
Truly inspiring  Sep 9, 2007
Melanie's writings truly bring characters to life. The books are well researched. I like how the characters deal with real life situations and problems. God's love shines through the series without being preachy.
A Classic!  Jan 4, 2007

Ms. Jeschke writes a wonderful book that spans two generations. "Evasions' tells of first love, of love lost, war, love, separation, misunderstanding, fear and deprivation. Through all of this, love of God prevails. With his love all things can be faced.

In the first part of the book Stuart asks for Natalie's hand in marriage. When her father suggests that the young man consult Natalie, he hesitates and goes to pave the way with his own father. That is how Eric and Annie begin to tell the story of their love to their children.

Eric's first love was Laurene. She was a beautiful Scottish lass who was stations above Eric in the social class. Her father agreed that they could be engaged, but not marry until Laurene had finished college. He then decided on the brink of World War II to send his daughter to the United States to keep her safe. As it turned out, that was not the wise thing to do as the ship she was sailing on was hit with a torpedo launched from a German ship. Eric, devastated by this turn of events, turns from his religious studies and enlists in the Royal Air Force (RAF).

Annie is an impetuous young lady from Virginia who is in London visiting her brother Jeff, a student at Oxford University. Annie does not get on the ship for America and is not lost at sea. With the impending war, she finishes her nursing and begins work at St. Bart's in London. Jeff visits frequently. On an evening out, Eric approaches Annie with a theater ticket. Jeff pretends to be her boyfriend to scare Eric into behaving.

Jeff, Annie, and Eric become fast friends. As Eric is stationed nearby he comes to visit Annie often. He even proposes to her and they take their vows in a small church near his base. Although they are not truly married they spend the night together.

Jeff, meantime, makes arrangements for Annie to stay with C.S. Lewis and his family in Oxford should the time come when she must evacuate from London. When this time comes Annie sends a letter to Eric.

Eric has been moved to another base as his was bombed. He does not get the letter and gets frantic as to Annie's safety. When he goes to look for her, he is told she moved out and that one of the girls was killed. This only makes Eric more frantic as he doesn't know which girl has been killed.

Annie has decided that Eric has chosen to forget her. She confides in Mr. Lewis that she is not truly married.

Mr. Lewis is engaged to speak to the troops about religion. While he is there, Eric seeks him out in the hopes that he may know where Annie is. A surprised Lewis asks if Eric can get time off and takes him to Annie, where the two lovers reunite.

The book returns to the present in Scotland where the family has gone to celebrate Eric's fiftieth birthday. All are present but Stuart. Natalie is unhappy and goes to the hillside to think and pray. This is where Stuart finds her.

I will not tell you how the book ends or all the details of Eric and Annie's relationship. Ms. Jeschke tells a marvelous tale that leaves the reader wanting more. I do hope she will continue with this series known as the Oxford Chronicles. It gave much insight into what life was like in London during the war and also much insight into C.S. Lewis and his cronies. The book is well written and transitions easily from present to past and back.

This book is well on a par with John Jake's series "War and Remembrance." `Evasions' is a book to last for the ages.

Evasions  Sep 14, 2006
The Oxford Chronicles is a must ready for anyone, especially those that love romance. Evasions is Melanie Jeschke's third book in the series. Each book is better than the next, but Inklings book one is amazing. She has a way of making the characters come so alive, that you feel so connected to them and feel what they are going through. You will not want to put this book or the other two down!! Evasions has the added bonus of being set in World War II, which is one of my favorite time periods to learn about. This book includes not only romance but history and a story of redemption that anyone would love and be hooked! Buy and read this book and her first two!!
I love this series!!  Aug 25, 2006
This is the third book in a series-the first book is Inklings, and the second one is Expectations. I would highly recommend all three of these titles to anyone who is an Anglophile and/or a fan of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. These books are very well researched, and very well written. I got interested in the characters right away, and couldn't wait to find out what happened to them.
