9781493583041: Innocence of Angels: A Novel of Romance and Heartbreak in WWII (The Anna Donovan Novels) (Volume 1)

INNOCENCE OF ANGELS is the first in a linked four-volume series of carefully researched and beautifully written historical romances about young nurse Anna Donovan's life before, during, and after World War Two. The second volume, MINISTRY OF ANGELS, follows Anna to the Maine coast after her husband is missing in action, presumed killed, early in World War Two. ODYSSEY OF ANGELS takes her deep into the hell of the Pacific War as an ensign nurse aboard USS Compassion, a Navy hospital ship. ORDINARY ANGELS follows her return to marriage, civilian life, and a measure of peace. In Spring, 1941, as war looms closer, young Anna Moss’s life seems on course for a secure, comfortable future. Not only does she have a good job as a nurse in a naval hospital, she’s engaged to a promising young writer who shares her values of diligence, thrift and moderation in all things. Then she meets Dan Donovan, a new patient on her ward. Intrigued by this handsome but brash young submarine officer, she’s challenged to experience more of life than she’s previously dared. Eventually unable to resist his charms, she’s caught up in a wartime world where the romance is heady, the risks great and the realities stark. Yet even as she faces loss, sorrow and an uncertain future, she’s comforted by the knowledge that she’s followed her dreams into a love deeper and richer than she ever imagined. A love too good to last, perhaps, but one she’ll never forget, with a man she’ll remember forever.

About the Author:

JOAN LA BLANC began writing fiction during her childhood in Philadelphia. While she set this addiction aside to raise four children, it later enabled her to survive marriages to two career Navy men and one with Alzheimer's. Now, in her golden years, it continues to offer romance, travel, and the adventures of an international spy without the associated dangers. After a “real” career as a PR and non-fiction writer, she crafts circumspect prose for church publications between visits to the various parallel universes that provide her greatest inspiration and creative fulfillment. She lives in Virginia, close to the sea.
