What the Critics Say
Literary Titan ★★★★
The author brilliantly showcases the horrors of war and how it capitalizes on the arrogance and vanity of humans while humanizing war casualties so that they are not merely seen as numbers or statistics but as soldiers who are also brothers, sons, and spouses.
I profoundly enjoyed Of All Faiths & None by Andrew Tweeddale. I recommend this impassioned historical romance novel for the author’s ability to highlight the tragedies of war and how it is the ultimate equalizer, impacting everyone regardless of faith or lack of it. It is a well-told tale of love, faith, and war, and is perfect for fans of historical fiction.
This book is beautiful. The plot is just close to perfect. I have my reservation for not tagging it a perfect. I love the story. I find it difficult to accept that this narrative is fictional; this is because of how real every event in the book is. The descriptions in this book are wonderful; the author captured the settings explicitly well.
Readers' Favorite ★★★★
Tweeddale effectively conveys the horror of that war and its effect, both physical and psychological, on the soldiers (and nurses) who fought in it and their families in England. History buffs and lovers of bittersweet romance will appreciate this novel.
The Outstanding Creator Awards +93%
This ambitious novel that took 18+ years to write does a lot of things right. It is well-written, well-formatted, and well-researched. It also really shines at times.
"Divided into 10 parts, attorney Tweeddale’s well-researched debut novel expertly balances complex personal and political dynamics before and during the Great War. The author effectively integrates artistry, ancient stories, legends, war journals, and letters that add historical accuracy and emotional honesty to the work. The setting descriptions mirror both the characters’ emotional states and the darkness of the times, which give the novel a sense of dimension." - Kirkus Reviews
