A WWII Romance!!!

The One True Love of Alice Ann 

by Eva Marie Everson

This is the first book I have read by Eva Marie Everson, the thing that drew me to the book was the story line based during WWII. When I picked up the book and started to read it, I was drawn in to the story about a young girl during a time that was in a upheaval. I went thru a time period where like Alice Ann, I had a crush on a guy who had no interest in me. As the story progresses Alice Ann corresponds with her elder brothers friend Mack, that has been shipped overseas to fight the war. Letter writing was one of the ways to share news from home to the guys on the war front during that time period. Which compared to now days we have email, social media, cell phones, where we can just share news at the drop of a hat. The boys on the war front loved getting mail and packages from back home. In this story the letters that passed between Alice Ann and these two young men shared so much news of life on the front and at home. 

As time passes, one of the young men is injured and sent home to recover from his injuries. When Alice Ann's best friend comes to her with a special request; to read to her older brother Carlton the recently returned home war hero. Alice Ann gives in to her best friend's request and starts to spend time reading to Carlton. As the days pass it seems that Carlton slowly regains his strength and vision back. But very bad news comes thru rocking the town to their core. Mack is considered missing in action, by the war officials.  Alice Ann heart is ripped to shreds at the news of her first love being  missing, that she chooses to stop spending time with Carlton.

Carlton reaches out to Alice Ann showing her that her time spent with him means more than just friendship. Alice Ann's family also give her the support and strength she need to pull thru the times ahead of them. When the truth comes to light, Alice Ann is given a chance to choose between two men; one who loves her for who she is and another who has fallen in love with what he thinks is her. Which one will Alice Ann choose Carlton the man she nursed back to health or Mack the boy she had loved as a young girl?

This is a very delightful story of a time of war and love, I will truly read another of Eva Marie Everson books.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
