A heartwarming WWII love story, Canteen Dreams won the 2008 American Christian Fiction Writers’ Carol Award for short historical fiction.
In the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, Nebraska schoolteacher Audrey Stone wants to support the war effort in any way she can. When her community starts a canteen at the train station, Audrey spends nearly every spare moment there, offering food and kindness to the soldiers passing through. She never expected to fall for a local boy…or face the challenges of budding love in the face of war.
Rancher Willard Johnson admires Audrey’s passionate nature, but when his brother is killed in action, he feels he must avenge by enlisting himself. His father insists he stay, but Willard knows he must go. Reality intrudes, and he never expected the jealousy he experiences when he sees those in uniform.
Can Willard’s budding relationship with Audrey weather the storms of war? Or will one of the other soldiers at the canteen steal her heart?

Loved it. Ended too soon
Where is your editor? You need her. It was hard to weed through some of your choices of verbs and adjectives that didn't quite fit. And your spelling errors were too plenteous. Graham was more likable than Audrey, but we never even had closure on his life. Wish I'd enjoyed it.
Canteen dreams is a wonderful interesting book I could not stop reading it until it was finished. The characters displayed such faith.
