Ambrose Young was beautiful. He was tall and muscular, with hair that touched his shoulders and eyes that burned right through you. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She'd been reading them since she was 13. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have...until he wasn't beautiful anymore.
Making Faces is the story of a small town where five young men go off to war, and only one comes back. It is the story of loss. Collective loss, individual loss, loss of beauty, loss of life, loss of identity. It is the tale of one girl's love for a broken boy and a wounded warrior's love for an unremarkable girl. This is a story of friendship that overcomes heartache, heroism that defies the common definitions, and a modern tale of Beauty and the Beast, where we discover that there is a little beauty and a little beast in all of us.

Don't think about it READ IT!!!
I finished this book early this morning while getting ready for work, however it has taken me this long to write a review as I don't think I have enough words to describe this beautiful book.
I think this is probably one of the best books I have read this year, and that is a very high accolade!
I wasn't too sure when I first turned on my audible app and started the book, but by about 10 minutes in I was hooked and a little bit in love ♡♡
This book had everything for me, love, hate, surprise, confusion and heartache.
If you have read the blurb of the book then you do not want me to give you another synopsis, and I don’t want to go on about too much in the book and spoil it for you, so just buy, beg or steal the book and read it ASAP.
A huge 6 ☆ and straight onto my favourite’s shelf

Touching, enjoyable tale
I initially thought 'not another Cyrano De Bergerac retelling, please' but the author alludes to that comparison and swiftly moves on from the letter writing device to tell a story woven with believable main characters and home truths about their flaws and strengths. Sad, touching and hopeful in turn, I enjoyed this book immensely.
