MULTI-AWARD WINNING AUTHOR
“We all carry emotional scars. My father brought his scars back from the war and kept them in a small cedar box. After he died I opened the box, took them out, and wrote a story about them.”
Stranded behind enemy lines, eighteen-year-old Katrinka Badeau escapes German deserters with the help of an undercover Jedburgh operation. Katrinka joins the Jed team, led by Major Willoughby Nye, a man once employed on her father’s merchant ship. Her work throws her together with Sergeant Wolfe Farr, the team’s tough-talking radio operator. Amid the chaos of war, she and Wolfe begin a passion-tangled love affair. But Katrinka cannot accept Wolfe’s plans for the future. And her love for Nye, which has evolved from an adolescent crush to that of a young woman, still burns bright.
With the liberation of France, both men are sent to the Far East. Refusing to be left behind, Katrinka joins a small entertainment troupe and sets out on an arduous journey to find them.
"...a fast-paced plot and romance within a historical setting. It grabs one’s attention from its very first words and never lets go."
