A first love is never easily forgotten . . . and coming face to face with that person again can be awkward when the heartstrings are still holding on to the “what ifs.”

A soldier’s homecoming is painful. A family needs help. A prodigal son returns. A rogue aeronaut drops from the sky. A runaway bridegroom comes home. A letter for aid is sent. A doctor needs a nurse. Can love rekindle despite the separation of time and space? PRE-ORDER A COPY TODAY!
