*The HOPE RISING story begins….*“Afternoon.”Evelyn whirled around to find an American soldier watching her from a few feet away. He wasn’t overly tall, less than six feet, but his handsome face, broad shoulders, and dark eyes were an impressive combination and made Evelyn’s pulse skip from more than being startled.“I didn’t mean to disturb you.” He smiled, looking anything but apologetic. “Beautiful view.”The way he said it, she knew he wasn’t talking about the ocean. *~ from the Prologue*Today’s Teaser Tuesday ?*She removed a match from the box on top of the dresser and headed down the stairs. Outside the afternoon sun shone warm on her back as she stepped quickly toward the forest. Beneath the trees, she slowed her footsteps and followed the sun-strewn path.When she felt certain no one from the hospital could see her, Evelyn stopped. She placed the crinkled paper on the ground and struck the match against a nearby tree trunk. The tiny flame lapped at the pile of letters as she crouched beside them. Once the paper caught fire, Evelyn dropped the match onto the pile and watched with satisfaction as her letters burned. Her secret was safe — for now.*Are you as intrigued as I am ?
Here’s the storyline…
*Heartfelt writing producing authentic characters with authentic life struggles in the midst of the horrors, losses, and grieving of wartime.
Ms Henrie is a sure win with the Of Love and War series.

Stacy has always had an avid appetite for history, fiction and chocolate. While she had a goal to write and publish a book one day, she turned her attentions first to graduating with a bachelor’s degree in public relations. Not long after, she switched from writing press releases and newsletters to writing inspirational historical romances as a stay-at-home mom. Stacy loves reading, interior decorating, romantic movies, and most of all, laughing with her husband and three kids. She appreciates the chance to live out history through her characters, while enjoying all the modern conveniences of life in the 21st century.
