Brave Hearts by Carolyn Hart With a new introduction by the author
A woman caught in a loveless marriage
discovers love again in the midst of desolation.
Catharine Cavanaugh is caught in a loveless marriage. Married to a British diplomat, she goes through the motions of playing the dutiful American wife in war-time London, while nightly German bombers bring terror and death
to the city. Then she meets American war correspondent Jack Maguire and discovers hope and love again in the midst of desolation.
But war soon comes between them. When Catharine and her husband are unexpectedly transferred to the Philippines, Jack follows. Shortly after their arrival, the Japanese attack. The trapped civilians, including Catharine and
Jack, are forced into a harrowing adventure to escape the marauding Japanese army.
This taut page-turner vividly reveals how ordinary people can become heroes when forced to confront heart-rending decisions in almost impossible circumstances.
“The gifts that have made Carolyn Hart famous are on display in this story of intrigue, romance, and gritty danger. Brave Hearts is one of her most compelling novels. A true thriller.”
