SHE REACHED OUT – AND HE WAS THERE…
On the eve of the Second World War in a small sleepy town in Georgia, Will Parker answers an advertisement to become a husband. Always a drifter, always unloved, he longs for a home and the tender care of a woman.
‘Crazy’ Elly Dinsmore is the reclusive mother of two, still only twenty-six, widowed and pregnant. So when Will walks into her life she’s just glad to have a man around – never mind the scurrilous gossip of the locals.
Gradually, Will and Elly reach out for one another, finding a deep and surprising passion that neither has experienced before. Then a brutal murder shatters their lives, and their happiness that Will and Elly have waited so long to find is threatened with disaster…
Capturing the essence of romance, here is a triumphant novel that moves from the gentle stirrings of desire to the towering passion of an extraordinary love.
“A beautifully written romance that pulls on your heart strings”
