Love and World War II come inexorably together as never before in Jacqueline Barry's new romantic, historical novel, Fortunes of Fate.
Four young women from small town America are drawn together in wartime Washington, DC where they have been recruited for jobs in the U.S. War Department. Excited, new to the ways of the big city and romance and anxious to be part of their country's new struggle, our heroines are swept up in the drama, romance, heroism and tragedy of World War II.
Foremost in the hearts, triumphs and tribulations of these four friends are their men-soldiers, pilots, lovers and husbands, torn from the women they love by the passions and fevers of war, and by the fateful crucible of history in the making.
Fortunes of Fate sweeps us along with these young heroines through many of the most dramatic and historic landmarks of World War II. From Pearl Harbor, through the European and Pacific theaters, to ultimate Allied victory, the loves, joys and sorrows of these four unique women, and the men they hold dear, are woven into a gripping tapestry that will keep you eagerly reading to Fortunes of Fate's startling yet satisfying conclusion.
