This was a wonderful read, set in 1944/1945 New York City about a woman's wartime romance with her Dad's GI friend and her own contribution to the war by working on the home-front in a factory. I felt like I was in the story. Very good read!
Like so many American women during WWII, Catherine Wilson was waiting for her fiancé's return from the Pacific and dreaming of married life. Then her father enlists, too, and it's left to Catherine to manage his factory devoting every waking hour to the hardest work of her life.
When Catherine first meets Johnny Danza at the Stage Door Canteen, he's just another GI heading overseas. But when her fiancé is killed, Johnny's V-Mail becomes a lifeline, and soon their letters blossom into more than friendship. But it's only when a wounded Johnny arrives unexpectedly at Catherine's door, that true healingand true lovecan begin.
