For the next few weeks I’ll be inviting my fellow box set authors from Duty, Honor & Love to guest blog here so you can meet them. I’m so excited to be in a set with these ladies and I’m sure you’ll see why as you meet them.
First up, Dana Marton.
By now, you’ve heard all about our fabulous box set and the great cause we’re supporting. Thank you so much for helping us!!! I hope we can make a difference together.
I’m the BONUS in the box set. I LOVE it!!! I’ve never been a bonus before. It makes me feel special.
WHEN YOU RETURN TO ME is a Christmas short story. It’s a story of faith and love, a story of never giving up. Maggie’s fiancé was shot down over enemy territory and is now listed MIA. All Maggie wants for Christmas is his return.
When a reader wrote me, telling me that she’s in this exact same situation, it broke my heart. She was incredibly gracious and told me that my little story gave her hope. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought about her since. I pray that she got her own happy ending.
I didn’t serve, but my husband did. So did his father. His grandfather served in the Pacific during WWII and got malaria. His great-great-great etc. grandfather served in the Civil War and lost his left leg. The man’s brother-in-law lost his right leg at the same time. They wore the same shoe size, so they used to go out, buy a pair of shoes, then split it. Their photo is in a book on local history.
So, you see, our vets are very important to me. Thank you so much for contributing to this cause!!!!
