As the Great War rages, an independent young woman struggles to sustain love—and life—through the power of words. It’s 1917 and America is on the brink of World War I. After Hensley Dench’s father is forced to resign from the New York Times for his anti-war writings, she finds herself expelled from the life she loves and the future she thought she would have. Instead, Hensley is transplanted to New Mexico, where her father has taken a job overseeing a gold mine. Driven by loneliness, Hensley hijacks her father’s correspondence with Charles Reid, a young American medic with whom her father plays chess via post. Hensley secretly begins her own exchange with Charles, but looming tragedy threatens them both, and—when everything turns against them—will their words be enough to beat the odds?

Praise for This Is How I'd Love You

“In This is How I’d Love You, Hazel Woods explores the enduring nature of an improbable love born of words, washed in tragedy, and sustained despite impossible circumstances. With prose as immediate and evocative as a painting, Woods accomplishes the magic of rendering sorrow into hope and fear into courage. It is as idealistic a tale as it is clear-sighted, a brilliant alchemy few novels achieve. Readers, prepare to melt” — Robin Oliveria, author of My Name is Mary Sutter
My review
Five Stars
Copy received from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for an honest review
What a beautiful story. Set during WWI, Hensley Dench is a young girl in love with her music teacher.  When the story begins she is on a train with her father.  Her father had just lost his job because he opposed the war.  When he loses his job at the New York Times they move to New Mexico.  She begins a correspondence with Charles Reid, her fathers chess partner.  The letters were beautiful and romantic.  

I'm a sucker for romance so this book for me was a hit from the beginning.  Hensley and Sacha have very different lives because of their different circumstances.  I thought this book was sweet, romantic, endearing and heartbreaking.  I highly recommend and really enjoyed this book.  The writing was engaging and the storyline was very entertaining.
