They were the men in Lizzie’s life separated by a world turned upside down. Jamie, her younger brother, was a pilot stationed somewhere in England, her husband Frank was in the Marines and the last letter she received from L.J. was from Fort Benning but she suspected he must be in North Africa by now. L.J. had always been her confidant, the close friend that she could always count on now matter how difficult things happened to be.
Kathy had always known that when she found the one person meant for her she would feel the spark between them. How was she to know that moment would arrive in the middle of a war thousands of miles from home? He was tall with angular features, blond hair, and the bluest eyes she’d ever seen. When he looked at her it seemed that all distractions faded away to be replaced by a silent exchange between them. Years would go by and she would think of the magic within that first look and wonder how real it was for them in that singular moment when her life changed forever.
