Vote for “Love’s Amazing Grace” for Readers’ Choice Award in Historical Fiction
Love’s Amazing Grace has been nominated for the Readers’ Choice award for Historical Fiction with TCK Publishing. As a tribute to veterans of World War II, please vote for Love’s Amazing Grace!
Love’s Amazing Grace recalls many of the harrowing events of that infamous day when the Yorktown bravely took three direct hits and still refused to go down. Discover why Guy was left on the ship and how he was rescued. Witness the amazing grace that reunites him with his three younger sisters, and the bittersweet reunion of a family brought back together after ten haunting years apart.
Outnumbered, there seemed to be no possibility the U.S.A. could win, but win they did. The Battle of Midway was the turning point in the Pacific during WWII. The captain thought all had abandoned ship, but two sailors were still on board.
While doing research for the third book in the Journey Home trilogy, I discovered two men were still alive on board the U.S.S. Yorktown after the call came to abandon ship. (historycentral.com/navy and navy.mil) The Yorktown was one of the ships sunk in the infamous Battle of Midway in World War II. Little was mentioned of the unnamed abandoned men other than they were rescued; only one lived.
The main character had emerged for Love’s Amazing Grace. I would give this man a name and a story. The events of the sinking of the U.S.S. Yorktown are based on true events and testimonies of those who survived.
