Read an Excerpt

Leah waited anxiously, and soon the crowd began coming out of the theater. Anxiously she searched the crowd. . . And then she saw him! He seemed to have grown since she had seen him last, and she spotted his black hair above the gray uniform as he emerged. She moved forward and opened her lips to cry, "Jeff, here I amâ⿬â¿'" but then she stopped.Coming out by Jeff's side was Lucy Driscoll, dressed in a peach colored gown and her hair done up in the latest style. She looked just as pretty as any girl Leah had ever seen, and she was hanging onto Jeff's arm. Lucy was small, as Leah had always wanted to be, and now she looked up and laughed into Jeff's eyes, there was a flirtatious manner about her that Leah knew she herself could never achieve.
