Publisher's Summary

Can forbidden love amid the constraints of war?

A sweet World War II romance from USA Today best-selling Author Shanna Hatfield.

The moment the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, life shifted for Miko Nishimura. Desperate to reach the Portland Assembly Center for Japanese Americans, she's kicked off the bus miles from town. Every tick of the clock pushes her closer to becoming a fugitive in the land of her birth. Exhausted, she stumbles to her grandparents' abandoned farm only to find a dying soldier sprawled across the step. Unable to leave him, she forsakes all else to keep him alive.

After crashing his plane in the Battle of the Atlantic, the doctors condemn Captain Rock Laroux to die. Determined to meet his maker beneath a blue sky at his family home, he sneaks out of the hospital. Weary and half out of his mind, he makes it as far as a produce stand he remembers from his youth. Rather than surrender to death, Rock fights a battle of the heart as he falls in love with the beautiful Japanese woman who saves his life.

A poignant, sweet romance, Garden of Her Heart proves love can bloom in unlikely places, even under the most challenging circumstances.

    "Beautiful story!"

    This is the first book I've read by Shanna that wasn't a historical Western! I hope this is just the beginning of a great series because this was a beautiful story and I can't wait to read more!

    My own Aunt is Japanese and she married my Uncle about 20 years after WWII! I always thought it was normal but after hearing this story I'm even more amazed by their wonderful marriage (they are still happily married), and the acceptance of my family towards my Aunt! I've very proud to be a part of my family and I love my Aunt tremendously!

    "Good book, but felt unfinished"

    I felt like the book ended too soon, as we did't find out what happened to her family.

    Story
    "Garden of Her Heart: Hearts of the War, Book 1"

    This is a historical tale set during WWII. Shanna did a wonderful job dealing with a disturbing period in American history by introducing a host of characters who felt all the real emotions that surface during war time, both the good and the heartbreaking. The way, we humans, treat each other is sometimes mind boggling.

    I appreciated that the love story was allowed the time it needed to unfold. The narrator did a remarkable job bringing the characters to life. I hope he narrates more of Shanna's audio-books in the future.
