Publisher's Summary

A mischievous light filled her gaze. “What do you think you’re doing, Specialist Chance? Stealing a kiss?”
 

He studied her sweet lips and liked the idea.
 

A heartwarming WWII historical from award-winning author Cara Putman:
 

Anna Goodman’s mother is dead, her father has given up on life, and her brother is missing in action in World War II. Anna’s dreams for the future are held captive by the responsibilities the war and life have thrust upon her. She’s desperate to hold the farm together while working at a war factory in nearby Kearney. She can’t do it alone. She must interact daily with Specialist Sid Chance, the cocky know-it-all who oversees the German prisoners who work on her family farm - prisoners that are a constant reminder of her father’s harrowing experience in World War I.
 

As Sid gets to know the determined Anna, he must balance her mistrust against his desire to help farmers. With so many able-bodied men deployed around the world, the prisoners’ labor is essential to save local farms from ruin. He must also battle against prejudice from men like Anna’s father, who can’t stand their presence or the memories they force him to relive. Sid wants to protect Anna; if she’d only let him. Anna’s as skittish as a colt, but he’s determined to win her heart.
 

When the farm’s future is at risk, Anna must decide whether she can trust Sid with her heart...and her future.

Captive Dreams

A gentle, Christian romance set in Nebraska during WWII. This was a lovely diversion for me on a long drive.

interesting

This story is set during WW2 . Anna works at a factory in town to help keep the family farm afloat. Anna's father has given up on life since his wife passed away. In order to help the farmers, since many men are deployed, the German prisoners were sent out daily to help. Many farmers were cautious in having the prisoners in the area.
Anna's father has a daily reminder of his terrible experiences in WW1, and doesn't want their help. Sid is an overseer of the prisoners on the farm. Anna must learn to trust Sid and protect her heart.
Cecily White narration was really good! I enjoyed listening to this story.

Taste and see that the Lord is good!

I enjoyed this book and this series! We actually drove through some of the areas discussed in this series on our trip across country this Fall and it was great to see one of the bases even as we passed through without stopping. Being a military family, I’m always enthralled with war time romance. This series is unique because it all takes place on the homefront!

The narration was good and usually easy to distinguish between characters. There was a raspy sound most had but it wasn’t an issue. It must be hard to create so many different voices and this book had more then the average in my opinion.

I wish we had a follow up on the brother, but I loved the epilogue!
