Love Letters Series

Anne Wakefield travels halfway around the world for love. But when she arrives in Canada from England at the end of World War II, she discovers the handsome Canadian pilot she’d fallen in love with has married someone else. Heartbroken, she prepares to return to London, though she has nothing left there to return to. Her former fiancé’s mother makes a suggestion: marriage to her other son.

Badly wounded and scarred during the war, Erik Gustafson thinks he’s a poor substitute for his brother. Although he loves Anne almost from the first time he sees her, he cannot believe she would ever be able to love him as he is – especially as he might be after another operation on his bad leg.

Anne sees the beauty of his heart. The cold prairie winter may test her courage, but can she prove to Erik that her love for him is real?

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    A new WW II romance from Jana Richards is always a treat, and this one is no exception. Set in Jana’s home country of Canada, the story provides a nice look at life on a farm in the time period before and just after the war.

    Anne Wakefield, almost literally left at the altar, is a gutsy heroine. The German blitz of London didn’t stop her, and neither will this new and shocking turn of events. But she’s brought a secret with her, and that may be more difficult to plow past.

    Erik Gustafson, who should have been her brother-in-law, is solicitous of Anne’s welfare from the beginning, but it’s easy for the reader to know his concern will turn to love–and that he’ll deny his feelings, as much to protect his self-esteem as to make sure he doesn’t put Anne in an even more difficult position.

    Needless to say, the course of true love doesn’t run smooth, but it’s the rocks that make the story more interesting. One just knows it will be happily-ever-after for everyone…one just isn’t sure how the end result will come about.

    All in all, Home Fires is a fun, worthwhile read, whether or not one is drawn to the war era. A couple of shall we say ‘hot’ love scenes came as a surprise as the action moved gently along, but the reviewer survived with a minimum of blushes.

    Home Fires comes highly recommended. Read it. You’ll like it.

    Quick read

    Great little story about a Canadian war bride, set in 1945. I wish it had been longer and fleshed out a bit more. 79 pages.
