Wings of a Dream

Rebekah Hendricks dreams of a life far beyond her family's farm in Oklahoma, and when dashing aviator Arthur Samson promised adventure in the big city, she is quick to believe he's the man she's meant to marry. While she waits for the Great War to end and Arthur to return to her so they can pursue all their plans, her mother's sister falls ill. Rebekah seizes the opportunity to travel to Texas to care for Aunt Adabelle, seeing this chance to be closer to Arthur's training camp as God's approval of her plans.

But the Spanish flue epidemic changes everything. Faced with her aunt's death, Arthur's indecisiveness, and four children who have no one else to care for them, Rebeka is torn between the desire to escape the type of life she's always led and the unexpected love that just might change the dream of her heart.

Y'all are so sweet!

Rebecca--I'm sure you're going to win a copy one of these times. You are tenacious! :)

So glad the rest of y'all like the time period and the cover. I'm kind of partial to both myself! :) Come back tomorrow and read a bit more about me and enter again to win!

Marji--keeps my feet on the ground when I have to do stuff like a Costco trip on such a day. But I will get to celebrate with my critique buddies, so that will be fun. Honestly, the day I jump out of my skin (and not in a good way!) will be the first book signing on Saturday. Yikes!

Congratulations on your new book, Anne!
I don't think I've read a novel about the Spanish flu epidemic so this will be some new history for me. I enjoy learning about actual events when reading historical fiction.
Thanks for giving away a copy of Wings of a Dream. I would love to win!
