I liked that the character James was able to hold on as prisoner of war with a picture he found under his cot by believing God did it for a purpose. Once he is released and home he starts on a search for her. After a couple of misses he finds Gloria and tells her how her picture helped him survive. Gloria has a rough life taking care of her sick mother and siblings. The picture was from her brother who died in service. After meeting could it be love at first sight and the answer to their prayers?
Just having her image kept him alive whilst in captivity and when they found each other, he kept her brother's wishes for his family.
I've only listened to the audio version of this book and this is a great listen.
I liked that James had persistence in trying to find the girl in the photo that he considered had saved his life while he was a prisoner of war. It was interesting how their paths crossed a couple times before fate and God brought them together.
This book is short enough to be listened to in one sitting but I wasn't able to do that even though I wanted to.
I received this free for my honest opinion. This is book is worth a credit.
ames is lost for a couple of years. When he found his friend Tommy is going to get HIM. His girlfriend is moving on. James found a photo from a girl under his bed and saves James his Life. He going to the base to find out who the woman in the picture is. He is going to the base for information and he came back with a list of people he called them all even Gloria. On the cemetary he met Gloria. The go for coffeeshop and diner and propose to her. She has to leave the country because of her family . When he get her adress they finally agreed to marry HIM and she did in her Mothers dress. A happy ending beautiful story and great told in the audiobook
It definitely ranks near the top of the Romance stories that I have listened to and probably one of the better audiobooks of all. It is a delightful, one sitting listen.
I don't know if there is any other book that I have listened or read that it is comparable to. It is sort of in they class of its own.
My favourite scene was when they finally meet. They keep almost meeting and miss each other by just a little bit. They finally talk and he realizes that she is the girl in the picture that he has been looking for! Really enjoyed that.
I thought it was very moving when she finally shows up and the diner after he has waited for a long time for her. The anticipation of what is going to happen really plays on your emotions.
It was nice to listen to a book that told a good, complete story in one sitting and not have to continue to get back to the story to find out what is going to happen.
I found this audio book to be a lovely short story. Ideal to relax and enjoy from start to finish on a rainy afternoon. James finds sanity in a photo of a beautiful stranger as he struggles to survive prison camp and Gloria mourns the loss of her beloved brother. The story tells of how James searches for the mystery woman he has fallen in love with from just her photo and how they bring love and joy to each other. Thank you Melissa Storm.
