9781475977486: Love Letters from a Doughboy: A World War I Love Story

Thomas Fletcher doesn't believe in love at first sight, but then he sees Juliette Wilcox at a drug store in Birmingham, Alabama.  He doesn't know her, but her long hair and chocolate brown eyes captivate him.  Their attraction cannot be denied, but circumstances stand in their way.

Juliette is a wealthy banker's daughter, whose father has no intentions for her to marry a poor farmer's son.  Then Thomas is drafted to fight in World War I.  Although Juliette begs him to marry her before he goes to boot camp, he doesn't want to leave her a widow, so letters are all they will have until he returns from the battlefield--hopefully alive.

While he's away in France and Germany, their love grows, and the letters continue to come to Juliette's front porch in Alabama.  Even so, war is a dark force, and many men will never return.  Will Thomas be one of the soldiers lost, or will he come home and make Juliette's dreams of marriage a happy reality?

About the Author:


Margie Howd holds a bachelor's degree in sociology with a minor in drama and speech from the University of Evansville.  The daughter of a Methodist minister, Howd grew up singing in church. For years she was a professional singer with the all-female group "The Choral Connection" performing in Indiana, southern Illinois, and western Kentucky. She also sang with the Charlotte Chorale in Port Charlotte, Florida for two years.  From 1983 to 1995 she and her former husband (now deceased) were co-owners of ERA Steve Thompson Realty.  Now retired, she lives with her husband Jim Howd, a retired Army officer and real estate broker, in The Villages, Florida. Between them, they have four children, nine grandchildren, a grandson due in April 2013 and a great-grandchild due in July of 2013. They look forward to many more years of love and laughter. Writing a novel has always been a dream for Howd and was on her "bucket list" for years.  She found the subject matter in a set of love letters her grandfather wrote to her grandmother while he served in World War I.  Love Letters From A Doughboy has truly been a labor of love.  This is Howd's first novel.

Thomas Fletcher first sees her in 1916, at a drug store in Birmingham, Alabama. He doesn t know her, but her brown hair and beautiful eyes captivate him. He soon learns her name-Juliette Wilcox-and she would learn his. Their attraction cannot be denied, but something stands in their way.
