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

“I wanted to ask you a question,” Harvey said, his voice quiet, his eyes searching hers.
“Please do.” Abby tried to keep the conversation light to counter the weight of her heart thumping in her chest.
“Lots of the cadets at school talk about their girlfriends,” Harvey started. “And how they write to them while they’re in school. I’ve never had that in the past three years.” Abby’s heart fluttered. “There’s one girl from Charleston who writes me. She wants to be my girl.” Abby’s heart sank. “But, you see, I don’t feel that way about her,” he continued. “At least, not when I compare it to how I feel about you.”
“I don’t understand.” Abby searched Harvey’s eyes, trying to figure out what he meant.
“You, Abby. I was thinking of you.” He swallowed hard. “I was thinking maybe you could write me a few letters. I have really enjoyed getting to know you this summer, and I don’t want to lose that when I leave for school in a few weeks.”
“Me? You want me to write to you?” Abby asked, flushed. What did this mean? Did he want her to be his girlfriend?
“Yeah, we can be like pen pals.”

Back to the sinking feeling. “Pen pals? Okay. Sure,” Abby whispered.
