Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington


The Second World War has stolen Rosalie's fiance from her. But rather than wallow, Rosalie throws herself into her work at the Boeing plant in Victory Heights, shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy. A local reporter dubs her Seattle's Own Rosie the Riveter, and her story lends inspiration to women across the country. While Rosalie's strong arms can bear the weight of this new responsibility, her heart cannot handle the intense feelings that begin to surface for Kenny, the handsome reporter. Fear of a second heartbreak is a powerful opponent - but will it claim victory over love?


Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington was like a walk down memory lane!
I spent a lot of time in my younger years sitting at my grandfather's knee, listening to stories of the war, the home effort, and so much that happened during World War II. This book took me back to those days and made me feel like I was right there, living alongside those who gave of their time and their talents to help out the war right from their own back yards.
As an historical fiction author, I'm a stickler for historical details. It will yank me right out of a story if there are lapses or obvious details that don't jive. Not so with this book. The authors nailed everything on the head and blended the details into the story seamlessly.

The sweet romance of Kenny and Rosalie spoke to my heart on many levels, and the subtle message of faith only strengthened the romance. Readers who struggle with truly trusting God and finding their worth in Him will gain a lot from this book. And those who love war stories won't be disappointed in the least.

And just wait until you meet Miss Tilly. What a gal!
