When he was eighteen, Jimmy Scott left Hart's Crossing, Idaho to join the army leaving behind his high school sweetheart Steph Carlson because he felt he was too young to marry. He married Martha and raised three children with her until she passed away three years ago. Steph wed Chuck and raised a daughter until he died last year. After fifty-two years away from his home town except for occasional visits to his parents, Jimmy moves back from Bremerton, Washington to live his final years in Hart's Crossing.

Steph and Jimmy reflect back to their first kiss when he was ten and she was nine on V-J Day. Other memories are just as fond of their times together. Although they were both happily married for decades to different spouses that they still love and cherish, these two grandparents still love one another. However, even with the Thimbleberry Quilt Club praying for this septuagenarian couple coming together, will Steph and Jimmy take that step they did not take over five decades ago?

This enjoyable second chance romance stars two likable elderly protagonists who find love though in the autumn of their lives. The key to the tale is that their deceased spouses were nice people not monsters easily forgotten once scars healed. Instead both enjoyed a fruitful loving marriage after splitting as teens and are now debating coming back together as senior citizens. The second Hart's Crossing tale (see LEGACY LANE for the previous novel) is a fine tale that emphasizes life is to be lived to the fullest at any age.

This story is a short, cute read. I mean, if you are elderly, why wait? You know by then how to read your emotions and I don't think anyone should tell you what to do, unless you are having memory problems etc.

I really love books that have a point and aren't filled with today's nonsense and loss of morals and character. These characters touched my heart and reminded us to pray and read God's word, and then let God handle it.

I like books where everyone gets along, but there is always a bit of conflict in life. This book shows we can work through it however.

Robin Lee Hatcher paints a picture of the lovely small town of Hart’s Cross in the novel Veterans Way .

The local diner, cozy theater, quilting club, and high school football games all adds to the homespun feeling of the town. Stephanie Watson, a 60 something widow and lifelong resident of the town, loves the town, her friends, grandchildren, and her daughter. She continues to adjust to living life as a widow, after the death of her husband. The loneliness grips her unmercifully during moments home alone.

Jimmy Scott, Stephanie’s childhood sweetheart, moves back to Hart’s Crossing after a 50-year absence, believing the move to be an obedient response to a prompting from God. The two once planned to marry but life changes led to them giving their hearts to others. Jimmy left town to serve in the Korean War, which led to him meeting someone else. She met someone at home. Both had long happy marriages with their now deceased spouses.

Stephanie and Jimmie rekindle their old friendship, spending time together over meals, movies and other activities, after he moves back to Hart’s Cross. As their friendship moves towards marriage, their adult children responses to the potential marriage range from gentle acceptance to outright anger.

Will Stephanie and Jimmie be able to work through the family dynamics that threaten a union between them? Will they take the path of least resistance or submit to their children objections? Find out in Veterans Way, a delightful story about finding love again during the golden years.

I loved this story,about a couple that date in high school,fall in love and then marry others,due to circumstances that tear them apart. It's a short book,but has a good story line,and when you start reading you want to see what happens. I would recommend it to anyone,who loves a love story.

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. It is an enjoyable reminder of God's love and of the importance of marriage, at any age. This is a simple read, but one definitely worth the time to take.
