AT 4 PM ON A HOLIDAY WEEKEND IN 1943, the Pennsylvania Railroad's premier express departs Washington's Union Station for a high-speed run to Penn Station in New York City. Among the 541 passengers in its sixteen coaches are a disillusioned war widow and a Navy submarine officer on route to an exciting new duty. Over the next hours, these strangers discover they share not only adjoining seats but the same final destination—Portsmouth, New Hampshire—and an intriguing attraction. As the Congressional Limited barrels into Philadelphia, however, Fate intervenes to tear them apart and change their lives in ways neither could have foreseen.Based on an actual event, Lucky in Love explores the challenges this couple faces in the aftermath of that eventful journey. Thoroughly researched and richly detailed, this is the latest in Joan La Blanc's series of engaging historical romances backgrounded by World War II.

About the Author
Born in 1929, Joan Hartzel La Blanc discovered the joy of writing during her childhood in Philadelphia. While she set this addiction aside to raise four children, it later enabled her to survive marriages to two career Navy men and one with Alzheimer's. Now, in her golden years, it continues to offer romance, travel, and the adventures of an international spy without the dangers. After a “real” career as a PR and non-fiction writer, she crafts circumspect prose for church publications between visits to the parallel universes that still provide inspiration and creative fulfillment.
