Glass Road PR Tour Stop for The Anniversary Waltz by Darrel Nelson
It’s the summer of 1946, and Adam Carlson has just returned from the war to his home in Reunion, Montana. Despite the strained relationship with his father, Adam sets out to revive the dilapidated family farm, neglected since his departure overseas four years ago. After some convincing to take a rest from his labors, he attends the town festival, where he meets Elizabeth Baxter, a young woman going steady with his former high school rival and now influential banker, Nathan Roberts.
This is a such a sweet story of how Adam and Elizabeth meet and fall in love almost immediately. The sacrifices they made and their journey is heartwarming. On the eve of their wedding the bride to be is involved in an accident that forever changes her, she breaks their engagement and frees Adam to find love again with someone else. What Adam does to prove his love for her is precious.
So much happens from the time Adam gets home from the war. His father is not the type to show his love and he is still upset with his son for leaving the farm to fight. Adam is struck with guilt when he sees how run down the farm has gotten so he begins repairs and painting to make the place look again only to find out the bank is ready to foreclose.
This book is a beautiful love story. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!
I received a copy of this book free from the Glass Road PR in exchange for an honest review.
