I'm thrilled to be sharing a review for this debut novel, Until Our Time Comes, by Nicole M. Miller! Check out more info below and then see my review!


American horse trainer Adia Kensington is living her dream of working at the famous Janów Podlaski stables in Poland, where they breed the best Arabian horses in the world. But her plans to bring the priceless stallion Lubor to the US are derailed when the German army storms into her adopted country in 1939. Little does she know this is just the beginning of six long years of occupation that will threaten her beloved horses at every turn.
Bret Conway is at Janów Podlaski under the guise of a news reporter, but his true mission is intelligence gathering for the British. That and keeping Adia safe, which is harder and harder to do as she insists they must evacuate 250 horses to save them from being stolen, sold, or eaten by the invading forces. What follows will test their physical, mental, and emotional strength, as well as their faith in God, humankind, and each other.
Drawn from true events of World War II, this epic story of escape, capture, resistance, and love from debut novelist Nicole M. Miller will thunder into your heart like a herd of beautiful horses across a raging river.



NICOLE M. MILLER is an award-winning writer living in Washington State with her husband and two sons, along with her Arabian horses, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, and guinea pigs. As a longtime horse owner, she's been involved in many horse organizations, including serving on the Clark County Fair Court and as Miss Teen Rodeo Washington. Until Our Time Comes is her first novel. Learn more at 


Wow, wow, wow. This book is impactful, thought-provoking, and truly a beautiful story. I couldn't put it down, and ended up reading most of it in one day. As an equine enthusiast, I absolutely adored the rich history behind the story as well as the author's note which explained the true history behind her story. It left me wanting to read more historical documentation about these Arabians and the real people who did their best to save them during the horrors of WWII. The reality of war is crisply-told in this novel and overall, Miller does a phenomenal job presenting the truth in fiction here. Even portraying the muddled lines between those on opposite sides of the war, who have the same ideals and are simply caught on either side of the issue, is an important theme through the story as well, and it's deeply thought-provoking. While I did feel like some portions of the romance were stilted, it all smooths out in the end and is absolutely a thrilling story from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys historical fiction, especially WWII!
