In the summer of 1942, 21 year-old Anne Calloway, newly engaged, sets off to serve in the Army Nurse Corps on the Pacific island of Bora Bora. More exhilarated by the adventure of a lifetime than she ever was by her predictable fiance, she is drawn to a mysterious soldier named Westry, and their friendship soon blossoms into hues as deep as the hibiscus flowers native to the island. Under the thatched roof of an abandoned beach bungalow, the two share a private world--until they witness a gruesome crime, Westry is suddenly redeployed, and the idyll vanishes into the winds of war.
A timeless story of enduring passion, The Bungalow chronicles Anne's determination to discover the truth about the twin losses--of life, and of love--that have haunted her for 70 years.

To be honest there were moments where I found the story a little sappy but in the end I really liked it a lot. I laughed, cried and had a great time listening to this story!
Avid Audiobook listener. Mostly like historical fiction or contemporary mystery/suspense.
I didn't get very far into this book at first I thought it was the narrartor but then realized it was the writing. I'm certainly no author but this just seemed like a script for a bad made for TV movie.
Very enjoyable story. This is another cold case mystery told in both present and past. Wonderfully woven together. Only downside was dead air between chapters, making it seemed the audio presentation had stopped.
