A dashing pilot. A young nurse. And a wartime love story left unwritten.

It’s the winter of 1943, and nineteen-year-old Helen Moore spends her days at the bedsides of the broken boys who are fighting gallantly to protect the land and people they love. Amid the tears and sorrow, the hope and dreams of a better future, fate intervenes—and a chance meeting with a handsome pilot changes the course of Helen’s life forever.

For eight decades, she’s held on to the last promise he made to her: that someday they would be reunited. Despite a lifetime searching for him, that promise has been left unfulfilled.

Now, at ninety-eight years old, she knows that time is running out. Will she ever find the man who captured her soul so long ago?
Robyn Wright may have found the happiness she’s been seeking on beautiful Thistle Island, but that doesn’t mean life is free of complications. Between trying to make peace with her father’s May-December romance, dealing with an ex who isn’t content with simply fading into the background, and helping Helen track down the love she lost so many years ago, she has plenty to keep her busy.

Which may not be a bad thing. Because every time gruff, unapproachable widower Levi Graham comes around, she could use a good distraction.

Sink your toes into the golden-sand beaches of Thistle Island, where strangers are friends, sunshine is plentiful, and the ocean is always just a few steps away. This feel-good small-town women’s fiction series is perfect for readers of all ages.

Author's note: This is a continuing series that follows the lives of the residents of Thistle Island throughout multiple books that are best read in order.
