Wait For Me : The West Virginia Mountains Series, Book 1 by Jo Huddleston.
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

To be honest, I was not sure how I would like Wait For Me. My, I was surprised at how much I really enjoyed it. I thought the story Jo Huddleston weaved was great. I just loved the love birds, Robby and Julie. I can not wait for book 2 of the West Virginia Mountains series to release.
I do not keep many books and this one is a keeper.
Great, clean book.
5 plus stars.

This story, set in the 1950s in West Virginia, is simple yet complex. The main characters, Julia (Julie) Capshaw and Roberto (Robby) Montagna could not have been any more different, yet were as one in thought and spirit. The story deals with the issues of trust – both trusting another and being trustworthy as well as learning to live with Alzheimer’s disease when it is discovered that a loved one has started down that path.

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.

I really enjoyed the novel; I originally downloaded because I live in West Virginia and was curious about the story line. It was a very well written and you felt involved with and could identify with Julie's good heart Would recommend. Just downloaded Book #2 in the serie

I enjoyed reading Wait For Me for several reasons. First, I am a Christian. While I read, it was very clear the author incorporated her faith into the story. I love the fact that she used the King James Bible. Second, I am from WV. Reading about the coal town, and the college brought a great sense of nostalgia and hometown pride to my heart. Although I grew up in a different decade, I am a coal miner's daughter. Third, the characters were likable, and I enjoyed seeing their personalities develop throughout the story. It was a very sweet love story, and we all need a bit more of those in our lives! It was not a boring book, but the simplicity of the writing made it a bit tedious for me at times. I found myself skimming instead of reading in parts; almost waiting for something to "happen". Because of this, and also the character lessons provided, it would be well marketed toward younger readers. I know the author worked hard on the story, but I think some more thought into the action surrounding the characters would be nice. I only wish things worked out so wonderfully in real life. Mr. Capshaw seems almost too good to be true, while the sudden decline of Mrs. Capshaw makes me wonder about the psychology behind that development. All in all, a good book to read on a rainy day. I hope to read more of Ms Huddleston's work, especially if her first is a good indication.
