New Release Coming Soon!

Letters from Home 
by Kristina McMorris 
Release Date: 5th May 2011
Published by: Avon Harper Collins

Chicago, Illinois…the year is 1944 and America has just entered the war. Young men and women are being drafted in to fight with their allies on Europe’s distant shores. Liz Stephens is already betrothed to budding US politician Dalton Harris, but when she meets GI Morgan McClain, she feels an instant and intense connection. But then he dances with her flirtatious best friend Betty and Liz is left feeling like just another soldier’s fancy. Betty is mesmerized by Morgan and begs Liz to write letters for her to post to him overseas. Liz reluctantly agrees, in the end anxious to retain a connection to him. As the last searing days of World War II loom, a correspondence begins that will alter the course of their lives forever.

This tale is based on Kristina McMorris’ grandparents whirlwind wartime courtship. Having only dated twice before marrying while her grandfather was home on leave from the Navy, the couple forged a relationship almost entirely through an exchange of letters.
