Save My place

Idgie Says: 

This is a bittersweet story of life. Dating, marriage, children, family in general, and heartbreak.  There's no cliffhanger, deep plot or suspense, just a life well lived.  It's a sweet story, but tear inducing at the same time - as is the truth with life.

Olivia is a true Southern Lady, with perfect manners but strength enough to deal with issues in daily life and her personality comes through in her books. 

This is a slim book filled with emotion and perfect for an afternoon read.

Book Description:
Blessed with an innate optimism and a magical childhood, Elisabeth Belle Sterling discovers that the path to happily-ever-after love is not as easily obtained as she had always imagined.

The Camelot-like love she longs for seems like only a dream until she meets the handsome Kincaid Patterson, a West Point graduate who carries a dark secret from his past.

Theirs is a passionate and unconditional love that has to confront a painful past, heart-searing separation, and the greatest of all tragedies. But the biggest obstacle is the loss of faith that threatens to undermine all that they have.

Set in the South during the 1960s and 70s against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Save My Place is a beautifully written love story of two people who search deep within their souls to save each other.
