Eighteen-year-old Sadie Stark, raised by the governor of Pennsylvania, has the world on a string. She doesn’t need the mother who left her any more than she needs the fiance who promises to change. What she needs is to finish college, and keep her wits about her.
When war-bound James Pasko returns her stolen clutch, and shows her what’s missing in her life, she gains the courage to search for the truth about her past.
What Sadie uncovers rattles her to the core. But James’ steadfast love gives her hope for the future—for the first time—even as the war tears them apart.
When James disappears over enemy lines and Sadie makes a startling discovery, she must decide to follow in the footsteps of the mother who gave her away, or face a life of hardship like she’s never known.
This was a very good, well written book, almost as if she wrote this book from her own experience. I truly enjoyed this book and could barely put it down when I had to. I haven't read a book this interesting in a long time. It brings out all the horror and heartbreak of war wondering if your one true love will come home from war at all, let alone in one piece. Carolyn did a great job bringing all this to light showing all the emotions they all went through. If you choose to read this book I promise you will not be disappointed. It is a very good book showing a lot of emotion and heartbreak like you don't read very often. I felt like I was part of all the things that were going on. Make this book one of your next reads, you will be glad you did! I received this book in exchange for an honest review and this is my honest review. Purchase this book and enjoy.
