First released Harlequin 1990
Can love heal the wounds of a war-torn time?
Twenty-two years after coming home from Vietnam, Paul Tremaine still carries the psychic scars of his experience there, in particular the memory of a skirmish he and no one else survived. Settled back in his small New England hometown and running a nursery and landscaping business, Paul is determined to erect a memorial to his fallen comrades.
He doesn’t count on opposition from Bonnie Hudson, a local schoolteacher and the mother of a teenage son. Her late husband was a famous antiwar activist murdered for his beliefs, so she, too, is a survivor of that war-torn era. And she’ll fight the glorification of war, even if it means standing in the path of Paul’s memorial.
Yet neither Paul nor Bonnie count on the attraction that draws them together, or the soul-deep empathy that binds them as they face new battles together. Can love heal their scars so they can make peace with their painful past and face the future together?
