This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

Chicago, 1944. Liz Stephens has little interest in attending a USO club dance with her friends Betty and Julia. She doesn't need a flirtation with a lonely serviceman when she's set to marry her childhood sweetheart. Yet something happens the moment Liz glimpses Morgan McClain. They share only a brief exchange - cut short by the soldier's evident interest in Betty - but Liz can't forget him. Thus, when Betty asks her to ghostwrite a letter to Morgan, stationed overseas, Liz reluctantly agrees.  

Thousands of miles away, Morgan struggles to adjust to the brutality of war. His letters from "Betty" are a comfort, their soul-baring correspondence a revelation to them both. While Liz is torn by her feelings for a man who doesn't know her true identity, Betty and Julia each become immersed in their own romantic entanglements. And as the war draws to a close, all three will face heart-wrenching choices, painful losses, and the bittersweet joy of new beginnings.

Beautifully rendered and deeply moving, Letters from Home is a story of hope and connection, of sacrifices made in love and war - and the chance encounters that change us forever.

A Must Read

I have no words for how this book made me feel. It had me filled with so much anticipation about Liz and Morgan (that's my name too but I'm a girl lol). There were so many times when I just wanted her to tell him but I understood why she didn't. Their letters were so sweet, so touching so heartwarming. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romance, WWII and overall just a fantastic read.
