Love Finds You In Victory Heights, Washington

20 Aug

The war has stolen Rosalie’s fiancé, Vic, from her forever.  But rather than wallow, Rosalie distracts herself by cramming her days full of activity—mainly by shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy.

When a reporter dubs her “Seattle’s Own Rosie the Riveter,” even more responsibility piles up. Her strong arms bear all this, but when intense feelings surface for Kenny, the handsome, kind-hearted, and spiritually unwavering reporter, the fear of losing another love propels Rosalie to leave.

It’s only when Rosalie realizes that God has brought her to this place—and this person—for a reason, the sparkling grace of God compels her to let go of her own strength and lean on His, as well as open her heart to love.

My Impressions:

Working women are so common today, that most people would never find a woman doing a man’s job strange.  But for the first time, WWII found women on the home front rolling up there sleeves to take on jobs to aid in the war effort.  Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington follows some of those dedicated patriots working at the Boeing plant building airplanes to be used in bombing missions in Europe and the Pacific. The story of one woman in particular, Rosalie Madison, dubbed Seattle’s own Rosie the Riveter, is highlighted.

Rosalie finds herself trying to make up for the loss of her fiance by throwing herself into work to keep America going after the men have left for war.  She volunteers at the USO, pounds rivets at work, and whatever else is deemed a help for the war effort.  Then reporter Kenny Davenport enters the picture determined to get a story on Rosalie.  They both fight their attraction to each other, but without much success.

The latest in the Love Finds You series is a sweet romance.  I also found the authors really did their homework.  From the slang of the day to the information about the camouflage of the Boeing plant, the novel brings back a day when men fought for what was right and women sacrificed to support them.  This story shows a glimpse of an era when patriotism was popular and people did what ever it took to keep America safe.   Take a trip to Victory Heights, it will be well worth your time.
