Published as an e-book in 2015 by Forget Me Not Romances, a division of Winged Publications.
Set in the 1950s in a coalmining town of West Virginia, Wait For Me is a novel reflecting the author’s interest in addressing moral and social issues.
The book highlights the barrier raised by the class divisions of those days, when Robby, a coalminer’s son, and Julie, a coal owner’s daughter, fall in love.
The young people are forced to employ subterfuge in order to arrange secret meetings to avoid the disapproval of Julie’s mother who epitomizes the snobbery of the upper classes; Julie’s father endears himself to the reader because of his kind heart, shown in his decision to improve the substandard dwellings of the miners, and to eventually smooth the way for Julie and Robby’s romance.
Jo Huddleston has chosen the genre of historical fiction to raise issues of morality which teenagers have to deal with in each generation. At the end of the book she has listed questions for discussion, focusing on some of these issues.
The major appeal of this book would be to young women in their late teens or early twenties. 25th May 2015
I do not keep many books and this one is a keeper.
Great, clean book.
5 plus stars.
I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review, which was given.
Julie’s father owns several coal mines and her mother is from a genteel southern family so her lifestyle has always been considered affluent while Robby is a coal miner’s son raised in coal mining housing. The expectations for Julie are college and an “appropriate” marriage, but for Robby, the expectation is to follow in his father’s footsteps and become the next generation coalminer.
The story begins while Julie and Robby are seniors in high school, in love, and having to “sneak” to see each other outside of school. Both are very bright, diligent students so decide to do what it takes to complete college, have good jobs, and marry. The author develops these two characters with maturity and responsible goals that are put to the test when the trust issues arise due to Julie’s mother’s attitude toward anyone “below her status” in life. Added to that, the signs of Alzheimer’s disease begin to become evident. Mrs. Huddleston shows the pain families suffer as this family lives out dealing with this disease. She also shows the positive impact on everyone when families trust God no matter what the circumstances.
This book is an enjoyable sweet story – an easy read. It illustrates family life, economic differences, romance, and most of all, love, one for another in all kinds of relationships.
I received this free book from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
