This was a really charming story about a long ago crush that becomes love. Ford Hendrix time in the military was hard on his soul but the letters he received from Isabel Beebe kept him sane. The meet up again after years of not seeing one another and the crush is still there for Isabel. Susan Mallery is a masterful story teller. Her stories a witty, lovable and sweet romances. I love how the story gives us the background on the crush and brings their love together at the end. You can always count on Susan Mallery to deliver a wonderful book, every time. I give this book 4 stars. A must read!!!!
