Today I'm excited to introduce Stacy Henrie's newest WW1 novel, HOPE RISING
Book 2 Of Love and War series
Released TODAY!

and Every Wish for
your Continued Writing Success, Stacy!
We're sharing the Celebration by joining TUESDAY INTROS ~
First Chapter, First Paragraph
hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea
TUESDAY TEASERS hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading

The HOPE RISING story begins....
Evelyn whirled around to find an American soldier watching her from a few feet away.  He wasn't overly tall, less than six feet, but his handsome face, broad shoulders, and dark eyes were an impressive combination and made Evelyn's pulse skip from more than being startled.
"I didn't mean to disturb you."  He smiled, looking anything but apologetic.  "Beautiful view."
The way he said it, she knew he wasn't talking about the ocean. 
~ from the Prologue
Today's Teaser Tuesday ?
She removed a match from the box on top of the dresser and headed down the stairs.  Outside the afternoon sun shone warm on her back as she stepped quickly toward the forest.  Beneath the trees, she slowed her footsteps and followed the sun-strewn path.
When she felt certain no one from the hospital could see her, Evelyn stopped.  She placed the crinkled paper on the ground and struck the match against a nearby tree trunk.  The tiny flame lapped at the pile of letters as she crouched beside them.  Once the paper caught fire, Evelyn dropped the match onto the pile and watched with satisfaction as her letters burned.  Her secret was safe -- 
for now.
Are you as intrigued as I am ?

Here's the storyline...

In France at the height of World War I,  American nurse Evelyn Gray is no stranger to suffering. She's helped save the life of many a soldier, but when she learns her betrothed has been killed, her own heart may be broken beyond repair. Summoning all her strength, Evelyn is determined to carry on-not just for herself and her country, but for her unborn child.
Corporal Joel Campbell dreams of the day the war is over and he can return home and start a family. When a brutal battle injury puts that hope in jeopardy, Joel is lost to despair . . . until he meets Evelyn.  Beautiful, compassionate, and in need of help, she makes an unconventional proposal that could save their lives-or ruin them irrevocably.  Now, amidst the terror and turmoil of the Western Front, these two lost souls will have to put their faith in love to find the miracle they've been looking for.
Heartfelt writing producing authentic characters with authentic life struggles in the midst of the horrors, 
losses, and grieving of wartime.
Ms Henrie is a sure win with the Of Love and War series.

It's been my pleasure to introduce Stacy Henrie's new novel,
and to offer other readers many hours spent with Evelyn,
Joel Campbell and their world in Wartime France. 
Thank you for this opportunity

Different times, different moral choices. I'm seeing lots of historical fiction going around this week.

Hi Sharon,

Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres and with this year being the 100 year anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, it seems an appropriate series to highlight.

I love the cover art selection for the three volumes in the series, when they are displayed together and the synopses certainly have me wanting more, as do your teaser lines.

I am wondering just why Evelyn is burning letters and what she is perhaps trying to destroy evidence of. I guess it has something to do with the American soldier - but what?

Thanks for sharing. I really want to add the complete series to my list, but can I afford to have another three books awaiting my attention:)
