Love Finds You In Victory Heights, Washington

Imagine you are living in Victory Heights, Washington in 1942 just as the WW1 was beginning. This is the time where men were being drafted into service as the Japanese had just bombed Pearl Harbor. Rations were in effect and people were busy selling war bonds and gathering items to help with the war efforts. As men left their homes, women stepped up to take their places in the workplaces that were now being used for supplying the war with planes.

One of these jobs was working for the Boeing plant in helping to create the Flying Fortresses, which are the latest in B-17 bombers that the US is hoping to destroy the enemy. Here we meet Rosalie Madison who has hidden herself away as a riveter at the plant. She has been creating an inner turmoil of her own when her fiancee leaves to fight in the war, and learns that he has died a hero. Unfortunately Rosalie realizes that she never really loved Vic like a woman should who wants to get married, and thus the reason for delaying marrying him before he left. Now a year later she feels the guilt of well wishers who express their heart-felt sympathy to her for losing her future husband. No one knows however what Rosalies true feelings are.

Late for work on her way to pay her respects to the memorial in the center of town to honor Vic and those that have lost their lives in the war, she runs headlong into a news reporter, Kenny Davenport who is on his way to capture Lana Turners speech to encourage the town. When he doesn't apologize for nearly running her down and seems only concerned with his camera she fires off just how she feels to Kenny in the middle of a crowded town square.
Suddenly the crowd grows silent as Lana Turner takes the stand and addresses the arguing couple who have appeared to have taken center stage and addresses them by saying, "Well? Are you two lovebirds coming up here or what?" Shocked that the entire town has now been listening to them argue, they encourage them both to make their way up to the stage to address Lana Turner, what happens to them next is where the story really gets interesting.

See just where this story and the headlines it is going to create will take both Rosalie and Kenny in Love Finds You In Victory Heights, Washington by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss. I received this book compliments of Litfuse Publicity and must say I loved it. A perfect 5 out of 5 stars for keeping the reader engaged in the story of both Rosalie and the reporter Kenny as well as all the local supporting characters. Love truly does find them with God's help to realize the forgiveness is something that can keep you stuck in your past if you let it, but with God's grace you can move forward and find love once more.
