Living in rural Georgia in 1941,
sixteen-year-old Alice-Ann has her heart set on her brother’s friend Mack;
despite their five-year age gap,
Alice-Ann knows she can make Mack see her for the woman she’ll become.
But when they receive news of the attack on Pearl Harbor and Mack decides to enlist,
Alice-Ann realizes she must declare her love before he leaves.
Though promising to write,
Mack leaves without confirmation that her love is returned.
But Alice-Ann is determined to wear the wedding dress
her maiden aunt never had a chance to wear—
having lost her fiancé in the Great War.
As their correspondence continues over the next three years,
Mack and Alice-Ann are drawn closer together.
But then Mack’s letters cease altogether,
leaving Alice-Ann to fear history repeating itself.
Dreading the war will leave her with a beautiful dress and no happily ever after,
Alice-Ann fills her days with work
and caring for her best friend’s war-torn brother, Carlton.
As time passes and their friendship develops into something more,
Alice-Ann wonders if she’ll ever be prepared to say good-bye to her one true love
and embrace the future God has in store with a newfound love.
Or will a sudden call from overseas change everything?
The One True Love of Alice-Ann is . . .
A real page-turner!
Ever so heart-warming!
Delightful and sentimental!
I could go on, my friends, but I think you get the picture.
Eva Marie Everson outdid herself with this latest book
and it's one you won't want to miss out on.
The characters will have you wrapped around their pinky finger
from the very first chapter,
and by the time you reach the end of the book
you will realize you have been holding your breath
while your heart goes pitter patter
at the precious and pure love story
that just unfolded like a rose before your very eyes.
You will notice I said it's a pure love story.
I was truly blessed and inspired by the way the author presented the romance
in a beautiful yet biblical manner.
It's written in a way that blesses married women
and encourages unmarried women to desire a pure relationship.
While this story is about a young woman finding true love,
it's also about a journey for Alice-Ann
as she grows up and becomes a woman of godly character.
I am most impressed with The One True Love of Alice-Ann
and I would encourage you, dear friends, to read it.
A 5-star book!
