Just Once: A Novel, by Karen Kingsbury
- Author: Karen Kingsbury
Karen Kingsbury, #1 New York Times bestselling author, delivers a sweeping and unforgettable World War II love story about a young woman torn between two brothers.
Beautiful Irvel Ellis is too focused on her secret to take too much notice of the war going on overseas in 1941. While she's dating Sam, she's fallen in love with his brother, Hank, and Irvel doesn't know how to break the news when Pearl Harbor is suddenly attacked. Overnight, their lives are turned upside down. Sam gets drafted, and Hank wants to enlist, but Sam insists that Hank stay home. Hanke and Irvel are left to face the battle on the home front.
While Sam is away fighting in Europe, an undeniable chemistry grows between Irvel and Hank, yet neither would dare cross that line. A telegram comes, and the news is devastating. Hank enlists the next day and has only two weeks until he ships out. Will either brother make it home alive? Will Irvel lose everything?
Can love find a way, even from the ashes of the greatest heartbreak?
