Synopsis

From the Greatest Generation, a love story to remember… Two soldiers go off to war in Europe. Both from the same neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. Only one returns home. Rose Kaufman’s grief is soul deep. Her husband, Joe, had been her one true love, so right for her that a lifetime together wouldn’t be enough. When Charlie Shapiro shows up with stories of Joe, eager to rebuild his war-shattered life with Rose and her baby daughter…she warns that a marriage of convenience would be unfair—to him. She cannot promise her heart to this kind and gentle man. Through the years, Charlie wonders if love can grow or if he’ll always be second best. Who is her true love? The man she married with all her heart, or the man who married her with all of his? It’s a question only Rose can answer.

When anyone asks Linda how she met her husband, she always says, "by accident," because on their first date the couple hit a telephone pole and ended up in a ditch. They crawled out of the car and hitched a ride to the local hospital in upstate New York. Totaling the car and getting a few stitches didn't bother her. How to tell her very protective dad did! She figured it out and is happy to report that her marriage to Michael is going strong with three grown sons, two lovely daughters-in-law and three gorgeous, amazingly intelligent and fabulous grandchildren.Always an avid reader, Linda discovered the romance genre as an adult raising her family in Massachusetts. The emotion and satisfying endings hooked her and became her lifesaver through long northern winters. One day, she found herself at the kitchen table, typewriter in front of her. The reader had become a writer...or was trying to become one.Linda's writing life changed when she and her family moved to Texas in 1995. She joined the West Houston chapter of RWA, attended every workshop and conference they sponsored and wrote, wrote, and wrote some more. She sold her first book to Harlequin's Superromance line in May 2000 and continues to write for that line. She also contributes to the Everlasting Love line, her first book scheduled for November 2007.Linda grew up in New York City and is a graduate of Hunter College with a B.A. in Sociology and an M.S. in education.
