Book Synopsis
As WWII draws to a close, war widow Vera Larsen Trumbell knows all too well the sacrifices of those left on the home front. Working on her family's farm has sustained Vera and her young children, but she now yearns for a sense of normalcy. The end of the war has been bittersweet for the Larsen clan as they and the residents of their small Wyoming town continue to pick up the pieces of their former lives.

Navigating the complexities of a postwar world, Vera and her family face the changing ideals swirling around them. From rising controversy surrounding women's presence in the workplace to the town's cold reception of the newest member of the family—a beautiful French freedom fighter—the American dream of days gone by has been thrown off balance. Even Vera's own life is set spinning when, despite her better judgment, she feels a growing attraction for the brooding and mysterious local schoolteacher.

As the Larsen family and their neighbors tread on thorny territory, will the people of this small town find the strength to embrace an unfamiliar and extraordinary future.

My Review:
This end of World War II novel is centered around the Larsen family that reside in a small Wyoming town. The book is told from different perspectives of siblings in the Larsen family. It showcases how they all are adjusting to life post war.

I loved how loving and supportive the Larsen family is.They are close knit and would do anything to help each other. One of my favorite characters is Vera, a widow with four children. I also really liked her brother Andrew and his new wife, Josette. 

The novel is not fast paced, and tends to slow down at times. It does show the struggles of daily life on a farm in the mid 1940's. The heart of the novel is truly the family and their love for each other through good and bad times. Beneath the Bellemont Sky will be enjoyed by those who want to read about good people, dealing with life's trials with the help of a loving family. There are many heartwarming moments that will make you love this new novel.
