My Father joined the Navy and was stationed in the South Pacific during World War II. While serving on Guam and Saipan, he kept a daily journal. I was fascinated to read his accounts of basic training, dancing at the U.S.O., shipping out from crippled Pearl Harbor, and repairing damaged bombers in the arena of war.
He spoke of hopeful rumors of peace talks…then recorded his disappointment when the rumors were proved false. Peace talks began in earnest when the bombs were dropped on the Japanese mainland. It was another three months after the war ended, however, before he shipped home.
Using my Father’s diary accounts and time line, I created a fictional novel weaving a story of love and loss from the past into a love story in the present. The resolution of both stories is intertwined with providence and destiny, and a healthy dose of history repeating itself.
The present day story line is set in Door County, Wisconsin, the Cape Cod of the Midwest. My current book is entitled Timeless and is the fourth novel in my Door County love story series.
Can a love lost in the past be redeemed in the future? Love is for now and forever…love is Timeless.
