Product description

Two people. An unforgettable moment. One extraordinary love story. In Chicago, Illinois, two people are about to lock eyes across a crowded dance floor. The following moment will spark the love story of a lifetime. The year is 1944 and America has just entered the war. Young men and women are being drafted in to fight with their allies on Europe's distant shores. Throughout America, sweethearts are saying their last goodbyes. Liz Stephens is already betrothed to budding US politician Dalton Harris, but when she meets GI Morgan McClain, she feels an instant and intense connection. But then he dances with her flirtatious best friend Betty and Liz is left feeling like just another soldier's fancy. Betty is mesmerised by Morgan and begs Liz to write letters for her to post to him overseas. Liz reluctantly agrees, in the end anxious to retain a connection to him. As the last searing days of World War II loom, a correspondence begins that will alter the course of their lives forever.
