Publisher's Summary

Petworth, England 1944. First Lieutenant Janet Castner is assigned to a small hospital unit when Operation Overload begins. Amid the turbulence of nursing the critically wounded GIs arriving from Normandy, her arrogant commanding officer takes her aside and asserts his love for her. Passions flare when he wrongly suspects her and another officer of having an affair.

Unbeknownst to the major, Janet has instead sworn her love to a seriously injured infantry man Sergeant Lou Morrissey. When the major discovers their clandestine romance, he wields his authority in order to destroy their lives forever.

Based on actual letters written by Lieutenant Janet Castner during WWII.

A romance based on actual letters...

This is a beautifully crafted historic romance based on actual letters written by First Lieutenant Janet Castner, an American nurse, stationed in England during WWII ... Dianne Lynn Gardner's sister-in-law had this stack of love letters written by her mother, and asked Diane to write this story. This book really is a letter of love, as well as a slice of real family history...
I had read and enjoyed D L Gardner's YA historic fantasy, Thread of a Spider, and I knew that D.L. Gardner had great writing chops, plus, I was intrigued by the backstory, so I had to read this one!
This story takes place in a small military field hospital in Petworth, England with WWII as a backdrop... It is the story of an ill advised romance between Castner and Sergeant Lou Morrissey... a romance that could end the First Lieutenant's career...

I rather enjoyed the narration team. Having a male and female was a good idea... Paul Bugallo was great, and my only niggly little complaint was that I felt Cheyenne Bizon rushed the dialogue a trifle.
