Blurb for Liebeslied (Love Song) (Captive Heart Trilogy, #1), coming Summer 2016:
Virginia, 1944. The world is at war. Nazism runs rampant in Europe and the American home front is a place of hard work and unflinching patriotism. Ignored by her father, bullied by her mother, overshadowed by her brother, 16-year-old Cassie Wyndham yearns to do her part for the war effort.
But after years of feeling forgotten and neglected, Cassie doubts she has anything of value to offer, especially when her pastor requests volunteers for a new ministry program at the local POW camp. Cassie signs up, despite her fear of the infamous Germans and the ire of her mother.
There, she meets Friedrich Naumann. Funny and kind, she is drawn to him right away. As their friendship blossoms into something more, Cassie and Friedrich struggle to keep their ill-fated romance hidden from the rest of the world. But time is running out, and they know it won’t be long before the war ends and they have to say goodbye…
If their secret courtship isn’t discovered first.
This inspiring, emotionally-charged historical romance will show you what true love is capable of and the sacrifices it sometimes requires.
