Description
A gripping story about the beautiful love of a young couple during the late1960's who are faced with the Vietnam War, tragedy and deceit. Will their love truly live forever or will it be destroyed by the unforeseen challenges they will face? Filled with twists and turns that will have your heart aching and your emotions soaring, you will shed tears of joy and tears of sadness at this bittersweet story about one of the greatest loves you will ever know. Maisy West is a young, beautiful woman who comes from a prestigious white family from Weston, Massachusetts and is attending Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. Francisco Martinez is a young handsome Cuban man who has recently been granted citizenship in the United States and is working for a construction company in a nearby town. The two are instantly drawn to each other when they meet at the beginning of the summer of 1967. Before long, they become lost in a deep, passionate love, forgetting the world around them…..a world that is not accepting of interracial relationships. Jonathan West, a highly respected surgeon, from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, has been obsessed with his daughter, Maisy, ever since his wife’s untimely death seven years earlier. Over bearing and extremely prejudiced, he is enraged when he learns his precious daughter is seeing a Latino man and even worse, is deeply in love with him. Can Jonathan put his prejudice aside and accept his daughter’s relationship or will his fury lead him to take unthinkable measures?
About the author
Barbara Pace grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey. She majored in Literature and Creative Writing at Central Jersey’s Business and Arts School where she graduated in 1965. Presently she lives in Northern New Jersey with her husband, two dogs and cat. After raising her four children and three step children, Barbara retired from the family business two years ago to follow through with her life long dream of writing. Having completed her first novel, “Written In The Stars”, Barbara is now working on the second book of her “Star Series”, “The Unreachable Star”, which she hopes to have released by next fall. One of her main goals when writing her books, is to keep the language simple and easy to read while at the same time creating beautiful and interesting love stories. One of the most enjoyable and important aspects of Barbara’s life are her eleven grandchildren. She loves spending time with them and loves the craziness when the “entire crew” is all together. When she is not working on her writing or enjoying her grandchildren Barbara can be found playing with her two small dogs or feeding the many deer that wander through the wooded area in the rear of her property. Running into Manhattan and meeting up with friends for lunch, a Broadway Play, shopping or simply walking around the city and stopping to check out the street vendor’s newest finds is another one of her favorite things. Barbara still enjoys working out at the spa or her husband’s karate school where she had trained for almost 20 years earning her 5th degree black belt and teaching children’s classes.
