World War II has ended and the soldiers are coming home. After years of following her crop worker father, motherless Claire Flanagan is also coming home. If she can keep her father in one place long enough, she plans to follow her dreams to Hollywood. Until she meets Benjamin.
Benjamin Russell has been working since he was fifteen to support his mother and siblings. What he most wants in life is to own a construction business and take care of the family his father abandoned. The last thing he expects is to fall for his younger sister’s best friend.
Life, however, throws cruel twists and turns into the path of romance. And when an unrequited love seeks revenge against Claire, and Benjamin learns his ex-girlfriend is pregnant, will lost dreams of a future together be the only thing they have left?

Whiteside is a lovey story teller, who gives us vivid mind’s eye pictures of the people, the surroundings, & the emotions of her characters. I have read her other books, & enjoy them all.
This was a wonderfully spun novel. It really had the feel of post WWII life. Claire and Benjamin’s love story though quick and with the feel of first love really has you rooting for them. Brenda Whiteside manages to paint a vision of life in that time as both fanciful and realistic.
The story is filled with intense emotion, captivating scenes, and unexpected twists. An enjoyable read.
