A destroyer escort is among the smallest of warships, but the USS Tabberer has the heart of a giant. A typhoon threatens the US Fleet in the Pacific during World War II, days before Christmas. The men of the Tabberer stand tall as they rush to the aid of their fellow sailors. For Seaman Jerry Collier, the typhoon prompts a greater awareness of what he wants in life. First, though, they have to survive.
A Dr. in the House
Emma O’Sullivan is one of the first female doctors to enlist after President Franklin Roosevelt signs the order allowing women in the Army and Navy medical corps. Within weeks, Emma is assigned to England to set up a convalescent hospital, and she leaves behind everything that is familiar. When the handsome widower of the requisitioned property claims she’s incompetent and tries to get her transferred, she must prove to her superiors she’s more than capable. But she’s soon drawn to the good-looking, grieving owner. Will she have to choose between her job and her heart?
Picking a Bride for Paul is a wonderful heartfelt story of a lonely man who decides to send for a mail order bride. The main characters of Paul and his best friend, Teddy are well developed and I connected with them right away. Teddy is a very caring and rather quirky character who is independent, but values her friendship with Paul. Paul was an independent person but because of an injury is forced to let Teddy care for him. There is a lot of tension in the story which makes the storyline very interesting and moves it along nicely. It’s a story of friendships, love, trust in God and the realization of what is truly in your heart. Enjoyed it very much.
Typhoon Prompting is an exciting suspenseful story of great courage, bravery, and self-sacrifice. Jerry, the main character is a strong presence, but has a whimsical sense of humor and calmness in the midst of calamity. I love how the author uses the letters from the love of his life in order to show his character. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
A Dr in the House was a very exciting and wonderful love story set in war time in England. I loved the historical aspect of the story and the author’s descriptions of the mansion made me feel like I was right there with the characters. Archie, the owner of the mansion was a strong, but very opinionated character, and at first, I didn’t like him very much. Emma, I liked immediately and felt compassion for her plight as a female doctor in wartime. It was a very interesting and well written tale and had plenty of tension to drive the story along. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
