Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
A new WW II romance from Jana Richards is always a treat, and this one is no exception. Set in Jana’s home country of Canada, the story provides a nice look at life on a farm in the time period before and just after the war.
Anne Wakefield, almost literally left at the altar, is a gutsy heroine. The German blitz of London didn’t stop her, and neither will this new and shocking turn of events. But she’s brought a secret with her, and that may be more difficult to plow past.
Erik Gustafson, who should have been her brother-in-law, is solicitous of Anne’s welfare from the beginning, but it’s easy for the reader to know his concern will turn to love–and that he’ll deny his feelings, as much to protect his self-esteem as to make sure he doesn’t put Anne in an even more difficult position.
Needless to say, the course of true love doesn’t run smooth, but it’s the rocks that make the story more interesting. One just knows it will be happily-ever-after for everyone…one just isn’t sure how the end result will come about.
All in all, Home Fires is a fun, worthwhile read, whether or not one is drawn to the war era. A couple of shall we say ‘hot’ love scenes came as a surprise as the action moved gently along, but the reviewer survived with a minimum of blushes.
Home Fires comes highly recommended. Read it. You’ll like it.
Anne Wakefield, a nurse, sat in the Emerald train station waiting for her fiance' to arrive, but everyone had left leaving her the only one still waiting. She had come from England on the War Bride Train and since all of her family had been killed in a bomb blast of the family home all she had was a few friends left. Anders Gustafson had rentlessly pursued her,and even bought her nylons and chocolates. At his last sortie he proposed and having no ties, she agreed to marry him and come to the other side of the ocean to marry him.
Erik was late arriving at the station thanks to Anders and once again he had to clean up after the golden son's mess! All his life, he had competed from their father's attention and fell short. Anders returned undamaged from the war while he came back with a scarred face and damaged leg and now he had to tell this Anne Wakefield that his cowardly brother had married his long time girlfriend!
The book is a great quick read. Left a few questions at the end but I would read other books from this author.
