A heartwarming World War II historical story from award-winning author Cara Putman.
Softness removed the lines around her eyes. “I love you, Art Wilson.” Before he could respond, she stood on tiptoe and stole the rest of his breath with a kiss. He deepened the kiss, and thoughts of abandoning the walk played in his mind. Can new love endure heartbreak?
Josie Wilson’s newlywed life is perfect - until her hopes and dreams are shattered by a miscarriage. She’s not sure her wounded heart will ever heal. Then Art asks her to open their home to a distant cousin who’s been evacuated from England. Will the child open her heart? Or will she remain closed off to the prospect of future pain?
Art Wilson adores his bride, but he never anticipated how challenging marriage could be. When grief over the baby they’ve lost forms a chasm between him and his new wife, he wonders if he has made a horrible mistake. Why can’t Josie support him and understand his long hours are necessary as the industry is reeling in the early days of World War II?
Will the ravages of war and personal grief tear Josie and Art apart, or will they keep the promises made to each other on their wedding day?
