This dynamic duo knew how to hook readers with their fantastic Love Finds You in Lonesome Prairie, Montana, and they've done it again with Victory Heights, Washington. These talented ladies have taken amazingly crafted characters, an incredible era in time, fabulously thorough research, a lesson in letting go and moving on, and created a romantic, heart capturing story full of God that readers can both laugh and cry through. The use of the "Rosie the Riveter" was stunning and makes the story that much more engaging!
I fell in love with everything about this novel, but my heart my heart went out to Rosalie. She endured tragedy almost instantly and felt the turmoil of not letting go and hanging on to guilt. I could see a bit of myself in Rosalie's ways, as I traveled along side of her through this tender love story. It was a wonderful experience!
This is worthy of 5 star praises and so much more! It's an excellent addition to both a home library and the Love Finds You collection. It's also one of those books that would make a stunning Hallmark movie! I recommend this novel to everyone, especially if you've never read a Love Finds You book. You won't be sorry that you did and I'm sure, like me, you'll be anxiously awaiting another novel penned by this fantastic ladies!
Their homefront conflict plays out against the backdrop of the war. Patriotic Rosie does all she can to help, while feeling guilty over her fiancé, a pilot who perished overseas. Through it all the characters' faith grows stronger and they learn to trust the Lord and each other.
The novel is filled with period slang and authentic activities and experiences of the time. My parents lived through that era, with my mother working in an Oregon plywood mill, so it gave me a better feel for their lives then.
I can identify with Kenny's striving for excellence. His father helped him realize: "What mattered was the magnitude of help to humanity. God created each of us to give." No matter how seemingly important or mundane our tasks, we should seek to follow Christ. This lesson came through loud and clear.
In this romance novel love is in the air. Rosalie has lost her fiance', Vic, to the war. She turns her attention toward the war effort in the aircraft factory. Will love find Rosalie?
A handsome reporter named Kenny steps into the picture. He has eyes for Rosalie almost from the beginning. But how does Rosalie feel about Kenny? Can she trust him? Do they have a future together?
I was on the edge of my seat from cover to cover. The authors, Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss, use vivid language to bring this story to life. At times I wanted to cry, other times I had to smile as I was reminded of God and His faithfulness.
I have a whole new respect for those who fought in the war, and those on the homefront. It seemed no matter which side you were on there was heartache and pain. For them life would never be the same.
I give this novel five stars for the thorough research that has been done to bring this story together. I recommend it to anyone who likes romance novels set in that time period.
****Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity Group as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
I spent a lot of time in my younger years sitting at my grandfather's knee, listening to stories of the war, the home effort, and so much that happened during World War II. This book took me back to those days and made me feel like I was right there, living alongside those who gave of their time and their talents to help out the war right from their own back yards.
As an historical fiction author, I'm a stickler for historical details. It will yank me right out of a story if there are lapses or obvious details that don't jive. Not so with this book. The authors nailed everything on the head and blended the details into the story seamlessly.
The sweet romance of Kenny and Rosalie spoke to my heart on many levels, and the subtle message of faith only strengthened the romance. Readers who struggle with truly trusting God and finding their worth in Him will gain a lot from this book. And those who love war stories won't be disappointed in the least.
And just wait until you meet Miss Tilly. What a gal!
Great work, Tricia and Ocieanna. Another winner from your combined efforts.
You know we girls are called to be strong and yet still have a soft side.
This book tells of yesterday girls. Tricia Goyer has a way of helping you live in times gone by.
I have read most of her books and watch for her next one so I can pounce on that and and get lost in a wonderful story.
Only thing is my work at home is forgotten.
