The Anniversary Waltz

When my husband and I were dating, I used to make him promise me fifty years, and we sometimes still bring it up.  By his count, he's only stuck with me for 36 more years, (but I keep extending it)ann!  In The Anniversary Waltz, Adam and Elizabeth Carlson are celebrating their 60th anniversary!  What a beautiful blessing!

The book takes readers through their history together starting with Adam, a young soldier returning from WWII and Elizabeth, dating his old high school rival.  The two meet and eventually realize they are meant to be together, but their journey is not easy.  The combination of struggles and joy that the two share solidify their love for each other.

This was such a sweet story.  I enjoy historical novels, and I was drawn into this post-war community.  The people and places were beautifully and vividly described.  I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet lifetime drama of love, hard-work, community ties, patriotism, and character growth.  This was a light read with some good life lessons included!  I would definitely recommend this book!

I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
