Brought together by war, separated by duty--a love story for the ages by an author hailed as "Henry David Thoreau meets Nicholas Sparks" (Publishers Weekly) Margaret Kennedy lives on a dairy farm in rural Maine. Her husband, Thomas, was injured in a war overseas, and he will never again be the man he was. When the president signs a bill in support of wounded veterans, Margaret is invited to the nation's capital. Charlie King, a handsome Foreign Service officer, volunteers to escort her. As the rhododendrons blossom along the Blue Ridge Highway, the unlikely pair falls in love--but Margaret cannot ignore the tug of her marriage vows. Like Nicholas Sparks' Dear John, Joseph Monninger's Margaret from Maine is a page-turning romance that poignantly explores the dilemmas faced by those who serve our country--and the men and women who love them.
