Can two broken hearts heal together?
Every day Rip Rockwell fights the guilt—the guilt that he survived the war when his best friend did not—and the shell shock. Both of which refuse to let him return to a normal civilian life. When he meets a beautiful young woman in his new neighborhood, he fights his feelings for her too. After all, he doesn’t deserve to be happy when it’s his fault his best friend died.
Deborah Walker gave her heart to a man who disappeared in war-torn Korea. While she wants to keep her promise to wait for him, she also has no idea whether he survived the battle that rendered him MIA. When a handsome veteran moves in next door, she denies her growing attraction to him, especially since his very presence reminds her of the man she’s already lost.
Can Rip and Deborah find a way to heal together, or are they destined for an endless series of heartbreaks?
A sweet albeit short story of two souls haunted by the Korean War. Since the story was short it lack the depth of character and romance that I enjoy. I couldn’t really get into the story since it felt kind of rushed and I didn’t get to really experience the emotions and connect with the characters that I wished I could have. But if you’re looking for a short sweet war love story then this might just be what you’re looking for.
