The Beauty Shop: Heroes of War Series (Unabridged)
Bassingbourn, 1942: Americans swamp Cambridgeshire as bomber bases spring up across the county. For Stella Charlton, an aircraft woman in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, it’s a distraction from her own troubles as she listens to swing music drifting from the aircraft hangar.
When she catches the eye of charismatic US bomber pilot, John "Mac" Mackenzie, he reaches for her friendship. Torn, she feels a spark between them and accepts. As they grow close, Stella, under pressure from her mother, faces a tough choice.
And as bombers fill the skies daily, the British and Americans suffer losses on a catastrophic scale. For Mac, flying missions over France, across Europe, and into Germany becomes a personal crusade.
Maverick New Zealand doctor Archie McIndoe risks his career and marriage to save badly burned airmen. Reliant upon unorthodox methods, he battles to save and rehabilitate seriously injured pilots. Soon, he appeals to the town of East Grinstead for their help.
When Mac becomes another casualty, his world falls apart. Believing Stella will never look at him again, he pushes her away. Can Stella find her way back to Mac and help him conquer his demons? Can Archie help Mac picture a future beyond war, one filled with love, hopes, and dreams?
Based on a true story, The Beauty Shop is a sweeping tale of love, compassion, and determination against a backdrop of wartime tragedy, awarded with an indieBRAG Gold Medallion. A truly inspirational historical romance novel series. For fans of The Beauty Chorus and Sarah Sundin’s A Distant Melody.
