Q) What inspired you to write this story?BELOVED SOLDIER RETURNS is to be released August 8 from MUSA PUBLISHING.
All around us the soldiers are returning home from war duties. Adjustment is difficult for the families of these soldiers as well as for them and especially trying when there are recovering wounds. I remember when my own husband came home. Wow! It was a big adjustment for both of us and he had no wounds to hinder his experience. I have always been sympathetic to the families who are left behind by war.
In this story Lynda, our heroine, is struggling to accept the death of a loved one lost in the Napoleonic war at the battle of Waterloo. She thinks she is dreaming when he appears, still recovering from his wound, but alive. His head wound caused amnesia and his return has been delayed for almost 3 years. He has a fascinating story to tell everyone about his experience. Gypsies kept him alive, but there is a secret he learns about his head wound.
