French Letters: Engaged in War is the second volume in the French Letters trilogy. The companion to French Letters: Virginia’s War, it is the story of Will Hastings, an army doctor caught up in the D-Day landings in Normandy and the drive to capture St. Lo, France.
Isolated from Virginia Sullivan and the events taking place at home in Tierra, TX, Will faces the demands of combat surgery under fire. He is also coping with the losses of his brother, his friends, and his connection to home.
Historically accurate, precise and taking place at exactly the same time frame as the events in the first volume, French Letters: Engaged in War is a novel of the will to survive when war, distance, loss, and the uncertainty of the future separate a couple far beyond the breaking point.
