Nightingale...Review

About the book:
Esther Lange doesn’t love her fiancé—she’s trapped in an engagement after a mistaken night of passion.

Still, she grieves him when he’s lost in battle, the letters sent to her by the medic at his side giving her a strange comfort, so much that she strikes up a correspondence with Peter Hess, an Iowa farmboy. Or is he? Peter Hess is not who he seems. Indeed, he’s hiding a secret, something that could cost them both their lives, especially when the past comes back to life. A bittersweet love song of the home front war between duty and the heart...a battle where only one will survive.

Don’t miss book 1 in this stand-alone collection, Sons of Thunder.

Esther must live with the consequences of a one-night stand.  While she loves her daughter, she doesn't love her fiance and living with his parents is a nightmare.  When a letter arrives that leads Esther to believe that Linus has been killed, she begins to correspond with the medic who cared for him.  As Esther and Peter fall in love, they must face the realities of war and the knowledge that the secrets they keep from each other could separate them forever. 

This one kept me on my toes.  I loved Esther and Peter.  The story is historically rich, and I had no idea German POWs were housed in America during World War 2.  A fascinating and entertaining story.
