Description
Summer, 1942 – The idyllic days on the Outer Banks of North Carolina are abruptly shattered when Hitler's U-Boats steal into the waters offshore torpedoing commercial and military vessels. A tall, handsome Coast Guardsman, Finn Ingram, flies spotter planes searching for Hitler's Wolfpack. On his days off, he meets a pretty brunette waitress, Louise Gates, and falls in love. Will Hitler's Operation Drumbeat break hearts as well as destroy ships carrying important war materiel for Great Britain? Summer, 1994 – Louise's great niece Della Gates comes home to nurse her broken heart after finding out her fiancé has been untrue. She is hired to restore and reopen her great aunt's Beach Road bookshop, L. Gates, Bookseller. In the process she meets and falls in love with local fireman Luke Howard. Can this be the second chance in life she needs? Inspired by the history of actual U-Boat attacks on the North Carolina coast during the Second World War, this book will transport you in time to a beach that you remember or that you wish you remembered.
