Brought together by war, separated by duty—a love story for the ages by an author hailed as “Henry David Thoreau meets Nicholas Sparks” (Publishers Weekly)
Margaret Kennedy lives on a dairy farm in rural Maine. Her husband, Thomas, was injured in a war overseas, and he will never again be the man he was. When the president signs a bill in support of wounded veterans, Margaret is invited to the nation’s capital. Charlie King, a handsome Foreign Service officer, volunteers to escort her.
As the rhododendrons blossom along the Blue Ridge Highway, the unlikely pair falls in love—but Margaret cannot ignore the tug of her marriage vows.
Like Nicholas Sparks’ Dear John, Joseph Monninger’s Margaret from Maine is a page-turning romance that poignantly explores the dilemmas faced by those who serve our country—and the men and women who love them.
