Lexie was trying to bring a little Christmas spirit to her room.
Her brother Robert (son) is a US Navy officer aboard the USS Arizona (aircraft carrier) in the Pacific.
The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
1/1942, Brunswick, GA. Alexandra Smithfield was checking into her room at the clubhouse.
Upon landing Lexie (Vassar, tennis) was back home in Jekyll Island.
Russell Thompson was there to greet her at the dock.
Lexie plans on selling Robert Smithfield Sr. (grandfather) Destiny Cottage & property.
Some of the help are: Abner Jones (gardener, shell-shock), Stella (head maid), Jack (Stella’s husband, chauffer), Walter (waiter), Mr. Mason (waiter), Louise (house maid) & Jane (house maid).
Later she met Mrs. Jenkins (ladies’ auxiliary president) & Mrs. Lee.
Tea, bridge, tennis, going to the club & meeting with the local prominent ladies was getting to be Lexie’s weekly routine.
Listening to the radio the daily news was about WWII & Germany.
Much later what were Jack, Stella & Russell discussing?
Really bad news from the White House. The Coast Guard has orders for all residents to evacuate the island.
German U-boats have been spotted in the vicinity.
As a retired mental health crisis & school social worker I can talk about mental illness all day long.
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written historical fiction book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great WWII era movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued? There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

While I didn't agree with some of the so called Christians' actions (like smoking) the book was reminiscent of a time when Christianity would have been an accepted part of the story and I think that any reader would enjoy this book because religion isn't 'fluff' or forced. Finally, the biggest plus is I did not run across ANY grammatical mistakes, misspellings, or any mistakes to detract from the story- and that is saying something when even major publishing houses let such slip in. All in all highly recommended and totally believable
Russell is in management at this community and has known Lexie since she was a child. All grown up, he tries to protect her, and in the process, helps solve the mystery of who sent her the telegram.
I enjoyed this story and the characters in the storyline.
