Title: Home Fires
Author: Jana Richards
Genre: Historical Romance, WW2 romance
Anne Wakefield travels halfway around the world for love. But when she arrives in Canada from England at the end of World War Two, she discovers the handsome Canadian pilot she’d fallen in love with has married someone else. Heartbroken, she prepares to return to London, though she has nothing left there to return to. Her former fiancé’s mother makes a suggestion: marriage to her other son.
Badly wounded and scarred during the war, Erik Gustafson thinks he’s a poor substitute for his brother. Although he loves Anne almost from the first time he sees her, he cannot believe she would ever be able to love him as he is – especially as he might be after another operation on his bad leg. Anne sees the beauty of his heart. The cold prairie winter may test her courage, but can she prove to Erik that her love for him is real?
What makes this a must-listen audiobook?
If you know about the British women who married Canadian soldiers and moved to Canada after the second world war, you’ll enjoy this book. And if you don’t know anything about war brides, you’ll enjoy this book even more. Anne and Erik’s story is fictional, but the story of war brides is very real. HOME FIRES is my homage to the brave men who risked their lives in war and the daring women who risked everything for love. I hope you love Anne and Erik as much as I do.
And when you hear Steve Wojtas’ voice, you’ll be very glad he’s HOME FIRE’s narrator!
When Jana Richards read her first romance novel, she immediately knew two things: she had to commit the stories running through her head to paper, and they had to end with a happily ever after. She also knew she’d found what she was meant to do. Since then she’s never met a romance genre she didn’t like. She writes contemporary romance, romantic suspense, and historical romance set in World War Two, in lengths ranging from short story to full length novel. Just for fun, she throws in generous helpings of humor, and the occasional dash of the paranormal. Her paranormal romantic suspense “Seeing Things” was a 2008 EPPIE finalist, and in 2018 “Lies and Solace” won Best Contemporary romance in the I Heart Indie contest.
In her life away from writing, Jana is an admin assistant, a mother to two grown daughters, and a wife to her husband Warren.
