9781613860441: First Waltz: A Chesapeake Heritage Novel

“Terry L. White’s The First Waltz is a compelling portrait of a marriage, filled with interesting characters and a page turning story. "Starting in the days of World War II in the Eastern Shore town of Cambridge, at the dance when Sally, a pretty young nursing student, means Henry, a handsome soldier from Upstate New York, first meet, the story progresses through their lives and their love, their families and their children. There are trials and tribulations; life is after all, what happens when you’re making other plans. "The story never falters, and keeps the reader turning the pages to see what will happen next. What renders this tale especially charming is Ms. White’s eye for time and place, and the mise-enscene of another time and another era in American history. Weaving details of that era skillfully into the fabric of the novel, the War and post-war periods and the small town life of ordinary people in Maryland and New York become characters in the story, so real you can taste the cooking and see the homes and places. This is a great read.“ –Helen Chappell, Baltimore Sun columnist and author of the Hollis Ball and Sam Wescott Ghost Series, Oysterback Tales, A Whole World of Trouble and Looking for Midnight.
