I know most of us moms rarely get time to read when you have small children, but don't you just LOVE getting lost in a good book? I think we should make it a priority every once in a while even though our time is limited. It's good for the soul, especially when it's an uplifting book. Right now I'm reading this BEAUTIFUL book inspired by a true love story that took place during World War II.
This book By the Stars captivated me from the very beginning. It's about a young couple who first met when they were in the 8th grade and instantly had a special connection. Over the years they lost touch for a time until one fateful day crossed paths once again.
The author LindsayFerguson is seriously amazing! Her words are so beautiful, poetic and engaging in a way that allows you to feel as if you are witnessing this story in real life. She really did her research when writing this book. I love what she says at the end--"everyone has a story to tell". I totally agree with this and just love that she was inspired to use her gifts to share this one with others.
"When Cal finally gets a chance with Kate, the girl he's loved since grade school, their easy friendship quickly blossoms into a meaningful romance. Spirited and independent, Kate keeps a guarded heart due to a painful past, and Cal wants nothing more than to gain her trust. But World War II soon cuts their time far too short, and Cal prepares to part from her - possibly for good. After he's gone, what Kate does next changes everything.
In the suffocating jungles of the Philippines Cal encounters the chilling life of a soldier and deadly battles of war. With Kate's memory willing him on, Cal must put his trust in God to survive if he hopes to ever return to her. Inspired by a true story, By the Stars is a love story that stands the test of time and the most intense obstacles."
