Book 2 in the American Homefront series
Through Fields of War
It’s 1943, and Walter Chase is still bitter about being denied enlistment in the war. Reeling from his best friend’s betrayal and a miserably failed romance, he feels there’s not much left to hold on to. When a freak accident leaves him the responsibility of his family’s Indiana farm, Walter knows he’s in way over his head.
Rose Everett is finally getting her life back together after the death of her boyfriend early in the war. Her job as a school teacher provides just the distraction she needs until a long-lost letter arrives and shatters her fragile peace. Desperate to smother her grief, Rose volunteers her summer to help Walter and his family.
As they work side by side, their life-long friendship fosters healing and grows into the possibility of something more. But when a stranger assigned to work on the farm turns up, his controversial beliefs threaten to unravel everything they thought they were fighting for.
