Overview

No one's ever paid much attention to Emily Wentworth, but all that changes in the spring of 1918 when her twin brother is reported missing and presumed killed in what is supposed to be the war to end all wars. Emily's convinced that Theo is alive and travels to France to find him. Since no one would let her go if they knew of her mission, she capitalizes on her ability to drive and repair a Model T and signs on as an ambulance driver.

Emily is determined to reach Theo, even if it means allying herself with Grant Randall, a reporter who writes beautifully but appears oddly unaffected by the war. She enlists Grant's aid, promising to keep his breakdown-prone Model T running if he'll help her find her brother. For his part, though he's intrigued by the beautiful woman who's so skilled at what many would consider a man's work, Grant knows better than to let himself care too deeply about Emily's mission. After all, caring is the road to heartache. Though each have reservations, they embark on a journey fraught with danger. As they make their way across the war-torn countryside, Grant encourages Emily to keep her fears at bay by whistling in the dark. Emily realizes Grant has fears of his own, fears that threaten both his happiness and hers. Can Emily help him overcome his fears before its too late?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The second entry in Harte's World War I "War Brides Trilogy" (after Dancing in the Rain), this sweet romance takes auto mechanic-turned-ambulance driver Emily Wentworth from Texas to France in search of her twin brother, Theo, who has been declared missing. But with a twin's intuition, Emily knows that he is still alive; and when a dream pinpoints his location, she ends up accompanying crack war correspondent Grant Randall (whose Model-T needs constant care) across the devastated countryside in a dangerous journey to find him. Employing a seldom used but nicely handled setting, this gentle, heartwarming romance features likable characters and a nice sense of place and will appeal to readers who enjoy their historicals short, sweet, and series-linked. Harte has written several earlier romances for Avalon (e.g., Dancing in the Rain and Imperfect Together) and lives in New Jersey. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

For almost as long as she can remember, Amanda Harte dreamed of being an author. Fortunately for the world, her first attempts as a playwright were not successful, and she focused her attention on writing romance. Her dream of publication came true in 1981, and she's been spinning tales of "happily ever after" ever since.

Amanda is a charter member of Romance Writers of America, a co-founder of its New Jersey chapter, and an avid traveler. She married her high school sweetheart, who shares her love of travel and who has driven thousands of miles to help her research her books. They have recently fulfilled a longtime dream and are now living in the American West.
