Read an Excerpt


"Jeff, I don't know what's the matter with you!" Captain Nelson Majors stared at his son in a perplexed manner. "You've been going around like a whipped puppy for a week. Now, what's the matter with you, Jeff?""Well?" Jeff hated to admit that he'd had a disagreement with Leah, but finally he could not bear the weight of his father's glance."Leah and I had a fight." "Can't you two ever get along? What is it this time?"Jeff flushed. He refused to tell what had actually happened. He finally mumbled, "Oh, you know how girls are. A fellow can't get along with them!"

    Amazing

    I loved the first five and i am continuing to read them. They are such amazing books with heartfelt family moments, romance, and a war right in the middle. They keep you turnning the pages and have many shocking moments.
