“Book Review Friday”
It’s November. It’s cold. It’s time to curl up on the sofa with another good book.
Today’s book recommendation is another beautifully written story set during World War II time period. When I began this book I could not put it down. I fell in love with the characters and the sweet story that protruded from its pages.
Author, Cara Putman tells the beautiful tale of two individuals on two life journeys whose paths cross in her first book in the Cornhusker Dreams series, Canteen Dreams…
In the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, Audrey Stone wants to help in the war effort. But what's a young schoolteacher from Nebraska to do? When her community starts a canteen at the train station, Audrey finds her place. She spends nearly every spare moment there, offering food and kindness to the soldiers passing through. Despite her busyness, Audrey does allow some time to get to know a handsome rancher. Willard Johnson worries about his brother who joined the navy to get off the ranch and see the world. When Willard's worst fear is confirmed, he feels he must avenge by enlisting himself. But will his budding relationship with Audrey weather the storms of war? Or will one of the many soldiers at the canteen steal her away from him?
I’m sure you will find this story warm and cozy, and your heart will ache for these two characters. If you love Audrey and Willard’s story, you will want to purchase the next two books in the series, Sandhill Dreams and Captive Dreams. Or you can buy all three! Look for “Cornhusker Dreams”.
