Release Day! Estelle’s Endeavor
I am thrilled to be part of this year’s Thanksgiving Books & Blessings series spearheaded by Caryl McAdoo. The theme for 2022 is Thanksgiving Through the Ages, and unsurprisingly, I selected the WWII era. I wanted to explore what it would be like to celebrate the holiday during a time of deprivation, loss, and grief. How is it possible to be thankful in spite of our circumstances rather than because of them?
Because my knowledge of the era centers around the home front, I needed to conduct research into the combat side of the war, specifically the push by the Allies to head to Germany by first making their way up the “boot” of Italy and then into France. I love libraries and librarians (and know quite a few!), so I couldn’t resist making my female protagonist a librarian. I hope you’ll enjoy this slice of history.
Here’s the book blurb:
Will a world at war destroy a second chance at love?
Estelle Johnson promised to wait for Aubry DeLuca, but then she receives word of his debilitating injuries. Does she have the strength to stand by him in his hour of need?
Aubry DeLuca storms the beaches at Normandy, then wakes up in the hospital, his eyes bandaged. Will he regain his sight? Will the only woman he’s ever loved welcome him home or is he destined to go through life blind and alone?
