This was an arc copy.
This is a sweet story about a young girl named Emma who happens to meet an American Soldier, Tyler, (with an American smile), who is temporarily stationed in Britain, who was out on liberty while he is waiting for his next orders.
Emma has lived in Britain her whole life. Her Grandmother happened to become ill and was muttering about burning letters. She unexpectedly passes away. Burning letters? What letters? What could she be talking about? Is her Grandmother hiding something? The family finds out. ALL these years . . . ?
This puts Emma into a search for information on her family heritage.
All the while Emma does this, Tyler is right beside her, helping her, encouraging her, going through all the ups and downs with her. Emma couldn't have wished for any more support than what Tyler has given her. All the while, though, in the back of her mind, she knows he will have to ship out again to his next destination. One thing Emma did not plan on was falling in love with Tyler. He is American, she is British. How could this relationship work? Is she temporary, like his stop here in her country is? They live in separate countries. Could this relationship work in reality?
This book is full of surprises. Surprises you could not imagine without reading this book. How does all of this work out? Does Tyler stay with her, or does he leave this `temporary stop', and Emma, as well.
This book was a very enjoyable read. The plot of this story was very well thought out, so the writing was very good. As this love story takes place, you can't help but to be brought into it and fall in love yourself. You feel what Emma feels, from her first date with Tyler, subsequent dates, and all through her relationship with him as it develops.Read more ›
Emma Rowland goes to a dance with her friend, Helen. While there she meets a shy young man, Tyler Robinson from Idaho. Tyler is in the Air Force and a mechanic...not a pilot and has been stationed here in England. Their lives become entwined more and more when Emma's grandmother dies and leaves a mystery behind. There was something Tyler recognized in Emma from the get go and it could help solve the mystery of the past.
Is their relationship just like most...American soldier far away from home seeks the comfort of a beautiful English gal? Or could it be more? Enjoy the adventure and heart break these two young people find on their journey to discovering the past and the future.
Cody's unique writing brings history alive in a new way. The reality of her writing will want you to have tissues handy but no fear because the humor is there as well. My favorite was when the American soldiers were staying in an English church overnight, one of the church women asked a soldier closest to the door, "What time should I knock you up, dearie?" A statement any Englishman would have understood but totally different meaning for the Americans!
