The authors did such a great job of describing this era and researching the city for which the story took place.
A. Eddins
Not afraid to bear raw feelings and show deep emotions, Goyer and Fleiss gave the readers a full buffet of God's love, man's love and forgiveness!
Jessica Rucker
I would have loved a couple of pictures in the back, there were a couple really tiny ones in the book of real women.

Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss have crafted a winning book in this World War II novel. Rosalie Madison has joined the women in the workforce, finding success as "Seattle's Own Rosie the Riverter." Her life is thrown together with reporter Kenny Davenport, who is assigned to cover her story. Past negative experience with newspapermen and discomfort as the center of attention compete with a growing affection for this handsome reporter.

Their homefront conflict plays out against the backdrop of the war. Patriotic Rosie does all she can to help, while feeling guilty over her fiancé, a pilot who perished overseas. Through it all the characters' faith grows stronger and they learn to trust the Lord and each other.

The novel is filled with period slang and authentic activities and experiences of the time. My parents lived through that era, with my mother working in an Oregon plywood mill, so it gave me a better feel for their lives then.

I can identify with Kenny's striving for excellence. His father helped him realize: "What mattered was the magnitude of help to humanity. God created each of us to give." No matter how seemingly important or mundane our tasks, we should seek to follow Christ. This lesson came through loud and clear.

My first tour ever with LitFuse was a Love Finds You novel by none other than two fabulous authors: Tricia Goyer and Ocienna Fleiss. They are absolutely the perfect combination for co-authors. These talented women write as one and know what will capture their readers' hearts!

This dynamic duo knew how to hook readers with their fantastic Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana, and they've done it again with Victory Heights, Washington. These talented ladies have taken amazingly crafted characters, an incredible era in time, fabulously thorough research, a lesson in letting go and moving on, and created a romantic, heart capturing story full of God that readers can both laugh and cry through. The use of the "Rosie the Riveter" was stunning and makes the story that much more engaging!

I fell in love with everything about this novel, but my heart my heart went out to Rosalie. She endured tragedy almost instantly and felt the turmoil of not letting go and hanging on to guilt. I could see a bit of myself in Rosalie's ways, as I traveled along side of her through this tender love story. It was a wonderful experience!

This is worthy of 5 star praises and so much more! It's an excellent addition to both a home library and the Love Finds You collection. It's also one of those books that would make a stunning Hallmark movie! I recommend this novel to everyone, especially if you've never read a Love Finds You book. You won't be sorry that you did and I'm sure, like me, you'll be anxiously awaiting another novel penned by this fantastic ladies!

"Thank you" to Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss and their publisher for sending me a copy of "Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

"Love Finds You In Victory Heights, Washington" by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss is a touching story of wartime loss and love that paints a picture of real life history. Rosalie is working on the homefront to support the war effort as one of the infamous women labeled "Rosie the Riveter". Now, she has lost her fiancé in combat during WWII. In her grief, she questions how true her love for this man was. This makes things difficult when Kenny appears on the scene. It doesn't help that he is a newspaper reporter - Rosalie doesn't trust journalists. Besides, why wouldn't he be off fighting in the war? Was he a coward?

This beautifully written tribute to the patriotic men and women of World War II is an enlightening journey for the historical romance reader. I am especially impressed because this novel was written by two authors. How do they do that and make the prose and dialogue flow so well? This is a thoroughly enjoyable book that I highly recommend for a weekend of entertaining reading.

About Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington:
The war has stolen Rosalie's fiancé, Vic, from her forever. But rather than wallow, Rosalie distracts herself by cramming her days full of activity--mainly by shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy. When a reporter dubs her "Seattle's Own Rosie the Riveter," even more responsibility piles up. Her strong arms bear all this, but when intense feelings surface for Kenny, the handsome, kind-hearted, and spiritually unwavering reporter, the fear of losing another love propels Rosalie to leave. It's only when Rosalie realizes that God has brought her to this place--and this person--for a reason, the sparkling grace of God compels her to let go of her own strength and lean on His, as well as open her heart to love.

Love Finds You in Victory Heights was an amazing novel with great historic details as well as gifted writing skills by the authors. I was swept away and taken back to an era placed in the 40's. Things were so much simpler and innocent back then.

The most amazing thing about this novel was how they incorporated scripture and God. I stopped and pondered many times through out this story. It gave me revelations of Gods love and also gave me revelations on how a man should truly treat a woman; even scorned, hurt women. I love how the Lord really works on Rosalie and in the story God send people into her life to help lead her to the truth of His love.

I give this novel 5 stars. The authors did such a great job of describing this era and researching the city for which the story took place. I felt like I was there or at least know more about Chicago than I did before. It also mage me feel like I understand my grandparents more now, because of the details given about the women and men during World War II.

I loved the novel written by Goyer and Fleiss, I hope to see more written in the near future!!
