9781462118151: By the Stars

Deep in the alcoves of Cal Morgan's mind is an unexpected and intriguing past. Recollections of growing up a farm boy during the Great Depression, learning to fox trot in the largest ballroom in America, and serving as an infantry soldier in World War II are fragments of his memories. But perhaps above all, a once-in-a-lifetime love story is seared in his soul, reminding us that some things in life are meant to be. 
 
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 a promise in hopes to 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.

About the Author:

Lindsay Ferguson has been immersing herself in stories since her childhood days of sneaking a flashlight into her room and staying up reading The Babysitters Club series way past her bedtime, writing spinoffs of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and imagining herself in fascinating, far-off places. She still dreams of traveling the world one day, and finds getting lost in a good book almost as absorbing as penning her own stories and experiencing them unfold. A Communication graduate from the University of Utah, she worked as a PR and marketing writer for a computer software company for several years before resigning to focus on raising her family. She has also contributed lifestyle articles to various media outlets. When she felt the itch to attempt novel writing a fascination with history created a natural inclination toward historical fiction, with a romantic flare, of course. She lives in a suburb of Salt Lake City with her husband and four children. By the Stars is her first novel.

Review:

"By the Stars is an enchanting tale that transports readers to a not-so-bygone time when honor and duty shaped the world and bravery defined a generation. Like Cal and Kate's relationship, the story blossoms from a charming will they, won't they romance, persevering through the hardships and horrors of war, and matures into a transformative tale of faith, destiny, and the life-changing power of enduring love." -Lindsay Maxfield, editor, Deseret Media Companies 

"Present and past meld together in this richly crafted story including the difficulties of life during WWII, the highs and lows of first loves, and having to leave behind the thing you want most. By the Stars is a heartwarming tale showing that with faith and determination, all things are possible...As I finished the last page, I closed the cover, hugged the book close to my chest, and sighed with contentment as my new friend Cal finished telling me his story, and oh, what a story."-Kelly Dearth, founder, DeliciousReads.com     

"A tender tale of the endurance of love and the hardships of war. Sweet and heartfelt. Cal and Kate's love story is one to remember."-Teri Harman, author of the Moonlight Trilogy
