Product description

Product Description

On the eve of World War II, two people are brought together by fate and discover an unexpected passion
Tall, dark and handsome Will Parker has served time for the killing of a Texas prostitute, but keeps losing jobs as his reputation becomes known. In the small town of Whitney, Ga., at the beginning of WW II, he answers the advertisement of a pregnant widow and mother of two, the abused and reclusive Eleanor Dinsmore, who is looking for a husband. Soon in love with ostensibly plain, bedraggled Ellie, Parker dotes on her two boys, and works to support the family. Fittingly for this sort of bucolic idyll, Will and Ellie, despite their rudimentary educations, love books and develop a special friendship with wise old Miss Beasley, the local librarian. Alas, brazen and rapacious Lula Peak, the town floozie, sets her sights on Will, waylaying him in the library; meantimes, Lula is blackmailing her lover, the cowardly Harley Overmire, who is no friend of Will. The clearly drawn characters fulfill their imperativesincluding Will, who becomes a war heroand all is neatly and pleasingly resolved. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates.

From the Back Cover

SHE REACHED OUT – AND HE WAS THERE…

On the eve of the Second World War in a small sleepy town in Georgia, Will Parker answers an advertisement to become a husband. Always a drifter, always unloved, he longs for a home and the tender care of a woman.

‘Crazy’ Elly Dinsmore is the reclusive mother of two, still only twenty-six, widowed and pregnant. So when Will walks into her life she’s just glad to have a man around – never mind the scurrilous gossip of the locals.

Gradually, Will and Elly reach out for one another, finding a deep and surprising passion that neither has experienced before. Then a brutal murder shatters their lives, and their happiness that Will and Elly have waited so long to find is threatened with disaster…

Capturing the essence of romance, here is a triumphant novel that moves from the gentle stirrings of desire to the towering passion of an extraordinary love.

“A beautifully written romance that pulls on your heart strings”
