Publisher's Summary

It's 1944, and high-school senior Meg Michaels has always obeyed her grandparents' wishes, till now. They're urging her to give up her dream of Cornell University and accept a ring from wealthy Hank Wickham before he deploys overseas.

But Meg has studied hard and yearns for something better than life in the rural Finger Lakes. Plus, Meg's suddenly fascinated with her childhood friend, Arthur Young, a handsome Seneca Indian farm worker.

When Meg and Arthur nurse a sick puppy to health, their friendship transforms into love. But locals look down on "injuns" and resent the fact that Arthur's farm job exempts him from military duty.

While the war rages in Europe, Meg and Arthur must fight their own battles at home....

sweet, smalltown love

A poignant small town story with a bit of romance. The story is set during 2nd World War. It's a story that brings you into a Wonderful world when life was much simpler, but same concerns about life, shadowed by bigotry, war, bullying, finding your place in life, and wondering about the future. Emily Heebner's descriptive words, paints a picture of the scenery, actions and of days gone by. The characters are wonderfully developed , Meg, finding love, seeing the effects of the war on her family, friends, and loves and wanting to make a change in her life. .I.hope.there is a continuation of this story of Meg. Ann Marie Lee tells the story with a softness, emotion , and love. Her voices and personalities for each character were spot on! Her ability to transition from one character to the other is flawless..🎧 #audiobookobsessionreview.

Well crafted romance dealing with complex issues

This was beautiful. The narration was flawless. The writing was beautiful with details that evoked a wonderful sensory response interesting the reader was in this story. Sweet as the story is, this was not a simple romance. This author tackles social issues including was, birth control, abortion, and depression with no heavy handedness. I will be looking to explore more works from this author.

Glimpse into a life at these times

This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would listen to another. A wonderful tale that could easily be a true story. It touches on many issues during the years surrounding the war- a woman’s place in society, lack of respect for natives, motivations for joining the fighting, realities of war on the soldiers and those left at home.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Ann Marie Lee ). Her voice is perfect for this sad romance/ historical story. She gives each character a voice. Her voice acting helped me visualize the events/people in the story since she tells the tale, not just reads it.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

A bit slow

I found this book a bit slow. The storyline is sweet, the characters are likeable but I felt like there was something missing. Great narration.
