Blurb: When life today is filled with pain, look to the future – or the past.
In 1945 Miles Chapeau returns from WWII to find his wife, the mother of his two children, has been hurt in an air raid and now has the mind of a child. He loves her and would never forsake his duty, but he misses the wife he knew before the war. One day she disappears and his existence is turned upside down.
Modern-day Loren Fairchild longs for children, but is barren. At a cottage in Carlisle, UK, she puts her divorce behind her and begins a new life. She learns that in 1947 the former owner’s wife disappeared. The same week, according to local gossip, her husband took up with a dark-headed harlot. One morning, a simple-minded woman appears in Loren's cottage and triggers events that change Loren’s life forever.
Review: Wow, what a page turner. I was shocked how much I truly enjoyed this book. Not that I thought Ms. LaRoque's book was going to be bad, but I just didn't think that a book with this page length (kinda short) could be this detailed. Linda was able to put the entire story into a perfect little package. There were no frivolous words, or scenes. Only perfect symmetry and lovable characters. I will tell you the first page made me want to reach through my computer screen and throttle someone, but hey, she caught me with the first sentence.
