Publisher's Summary

Eighteen-year-old Sadie Stark, raised by the governor of Pennsylvania, has the world on a string. She doesn't need the mother who left her any more than she needs the fiancé who promises to change. What she needs is to finish college and keep her wits about her. When war-bound James Pasko returns her stolen clutch, and shows her what's missing in her life, she gains the courage to search for the truth about her past. What Sadie uncovers rattles her to the core. But James' steadfast love gives her hope for the future - for the first time - even as the war tears them apart. When James disappears over enemy lines and Sadie makes a startling discovery, she must decide to follow in the footsteps of the mother who gave her away, or face a life of hardship like she's never known.

Heartwarming Story!

After reading the summary of this book I wasn't sure if I would like it but to my delight I loved this book. This heartfelt beautifully written story is filled with true to life conflicts and heartaches during war time. I was smiling one minute and crying the next. It shows the struggles, hardships, romances, and family issues of life no matter what era. It's truly a heartwarming book!

(Note: As much as I loved this book I didn't appreciate the production quality. The narrator did a great job but there are many mistakes....errors that should have been caught in the editing process. These errors are not the narrator's fault but I had to give 4 stars because of this issue. I've contacted technical support regarding this issue so hopefully it will get fixed soon.)
