Book Review - Wait For Me by Janet K. Shawgo

About The Book:

December 7th, 1941, America is at war. Many will go to fight, to heal and to report.

The Whites and Bowens will be there.

Susan Bowen, nurse and great niece to Sarah Bowen, will answer the call of her country. She will become a Task Nurse and care for the wounded on battlefields far away from Waynesboro, Georgia. In another part of the world, she finds someone to care for, maybe to love. Is it chance or fate?

 Larry White, young, handsome and working his dream job as a reporter in Honolulu. Amid the death and destruction at Pearl Harbor he is saved by a beautiful woman. He's unsure if she was truly there or if it was just a dream. Larry is determined to make a difference in the war by reporting it, just like his great uncle, Samuel White.

Deelyn Johns, pilot, mechanic and dreamer. The sky is her playground. When the war begins, Deelyn searches for a place, somewhere she can be of the greatest help. After all, she can fly a plane! They know the danger and face it; perhaps souls lost will find one another.

"Wait For Me" is the second book in Janet Shawgo's mesmerizing "Look For Me" series, which chronicles the White and Bowen families and their interactions and involvements in period of history that find them in times of war.

This story is set during World War II, and is told in the voices of Susan Bowen, a nurse who feels the call to action and joins the war effort to contribute her skills as a nurse; Larry White, a young and ambitious journalist who finds himself deep in the heart of the action from the beginning at Pearl Harbor, and young "Dealer" Jones, a fiesty gal whose love for all thing airplane will lead her into a field of work that she will become a pioneer in. 

The tales of these three young people intertwine and weave around each other, making a fascinating story that won't soon be forgotten.  Janet Shawgo is a consumate storyteller, drawing her readers into the heart of the action, and keeping them entralled to the very end.

I enjoy Shawgo's writing, and anxiously look forward to the next installment of the "Look For Me" series.
