“French Letters: Engaged in War, 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, Will faces the demands of combat surgery under fire and the losses of his brother, his friends, and his connection to home. Historically accurate, 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. This was a wonderful book. Mr. London has done a fabulous job showing the trials of war along with the human aspect. I love that it is historically accurate. Growing up I listened to my Grandfather’s stories of war and I must say this really brings those stories home for me.”
