Liz Stephens really did not want to go to another USO dance with her friends. She was not looking for a lonely serviceman; she was happy with getting ready to marry her childhood sweetheart. But then she met Morgan, a man she makes a brief connection with. Yet she cannot forget him even when her friend Betty asks for her help in writing to him.
Morgan McClain is in the Army and is shipping out with his younger brother, for whom he has always been responsible. He is blown away by Liz when he meets her at the dance, but he has an unexpected encounter with Betty and he never sees Liz again before leaving for war.
Morgan receives a letter which he believes is from Betty, only Betty has joined the military herself as a nurse. Those letters are truly from Liz and they both bare their souls and keep Morgan going through a rough war, and give Liz the courage to make changes she needs. But when the war is over, what will happen when the truth finally comes out?
I want to say thank you to Ms. McMorris for penning a truly wonderful book. You, the reader, are taken back to a simpler, yet at the same time harder way of life for many of our grandparents and great grandparents. The sacrifices they made were truly courageous. Liz and Morgan’s story is wonderful, yet there is also a few underlying stories as well that will treat the reader. Ms. McMorris also gives you a few more bonuses in this book; a bit of background on her inspiration for this book as well as recipes that tie into the book and time period. I would so love to see this book made into a movie I think it would be a blockbuster hit!
