ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: War-Torn Heart  
Author: Allison Wells  
Publisher: Ambassador International  
Genre: Historical Fiction  
Release Date: March 20, 2019

Abigail Walker, a young woman from rural South Carolina, is on the cusp of womanhood, aching to be able to run wild as the younger children do, yet yearning for things she has yet to understand.

Awkward and unsure of herself, Abby is flustered when she meets Harvey Nicholas, a cadet from Clemson College. As summer begins, Abby finds herself constantly in the company of Harvey and falling quickly in love with him.

As rumors of war begin to reach the States, Abby begins to fear what may come for her older brother and Harvey.

Once Pearl Harbor is bombed, the boys are eager to protect their home and the women they love. But will Abby and Harvey's love be able to withstand distance, rumors, loss, and hurt? Or will the war be what tears apart Abby's heart?  

War-Torn Heart is a kleenex-box book with a story of hope, of love, and of perseverance through World War II, which will make the reader cry, scream, and long for more.

EXCERPT:

Looking up, Abby asked, “It’s important to have someone at home waiting, isn’t it?”

“Yes,” he sighed. “It’s what motivates you to get the job done and come home in one piece.”

“Well, Harvey, you don’t have to worry,” she reassured him. “You have me to come home to when this war is over.”

“Do I?”

“Of course.”

“Will you be waiting at home for me?”

“I’ll be right here waiting every day,” she said with gusto. I promise.

“Do you have to wait here?”

“Where else would I wait?” she laughed, not knowing what he meant.

Harvey looked her right in the eyes. “In Charleston, my home.”

Abby giggled again, this time out of nerves. “Harvey, really. Where would I live in Charleston? My home is here; my family is here.”

“What if my family was your family?” He was very serious, his eyes dark, his mouth drawn.

“What do you mean, Harvey?”

Harvey ran his hand over his hair and held Abby’s hand. He was nervous. “Marry me.”

“What?” Alarm bells sounded in Abby’s head. Marry him? Now?

“Marry me, Abby,” he said in a burst of air and excitement. “Marry me after Christmas. Marry me before I leave. I want you to be Mrs. Nicholas before I go.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Allison-Wells-300x200

Allison Wells is a new author, but for the most part she’s a Southern wife and mother. With four active children, she spends most of her time in the car, but when she can she loves to sit down and read or write. Allison is a graduate of Clemson University in the beautiful foothills of South Carolina and she still lives close enough to hear football games on Saturdays.  

GUEST POST ABOUT HER RESEARCH METHODS WHEN WRITING THIS BOOK:

I wrote War-Torn Heart several years ago, so I really don't remember my research methods! I did a lot of looking into fashion with old McCall's patterns, I looked up when things were done at Clemson College. I went as far as to check the football schedule and I had to determine where football games were played in 1941. Certain elements of what happened during the war, both abroad and state side, were also looked into. It was fun to look back and see how and why things were done in the 1940s. It really makes one appreciate how far we've come.
