John’s mother left when he was young. He was adequately raised by his father, but there was always something missing.
After years of bumming around, he joins the military. On leave, he meets Savannah, a North Carolina mountain girl. They fall in love, but is love enough to conquer the demands of military life?
There is so much more to the story line, but I will not spoil it for the readers. However, as a military spouse, I can attest that Sparks hits the nail on the head when describing the love, admiration, and tension in military families. So many soldiers have to choose to either have a “normal” family life or a military career.
Until I read this book, I described love as a respect for another. Now, I describe it as altruism. Read this to understand the depth of real love. This book will capture you from the beginning.
