Today I would like to give a warm welcome back to author, Jaye Frances!
Thank you, Crystal, for hosting me today with my new release Love Travels Forever, a collection of my favorite short stories and essays. The book is one of my most personal efforts, and is dedicated to those who have touched me with their stories of inspiration and courage. Each one takes the reader on an emotional journey, one that I hope will be remembered long after the book is finished.
In “A Valentine for Danny” you’ll meet Wanda, an incredible woman who worked in a train station during WW II. Trains ran full in those days, and without a reservation, many servicemen on leave were left anxiously waiting for a vacant seat. A romantic at heart, Wanda found a creative way to help bring these young men and their sweethearts together. Here’s an excerpt:
Here’s a brief synopsis:
In Love Travels Forever, Jaye Frances captures the reader’s heart with an inspiring collection of seventeen stories filled with romance and passion, the hopeful innocence of youth, and a love so strong that it transcends the mortality of life. Here are just a few of the people you’ll meet:
Evan and Frankie, a loving couple traveling through life hand-in-hand, are unaware that the shadow of fate is about to tear them apart. Helpless to change their shortened future together, one of them makes a promise—a promise of devotion and courage, honoring a love that surpasses the boundaries of time.
Mark and Janice, the perfect couple with the perfect life, are on the threshold of finally seeing their dreams come true—until an unexpected circumstance changes their lives forever.
Danny, a young soldier fresh out of boot-camp, is desperate to find a way to travel home and marry his sweetheart before being shipped overseas. Stranded in a train station on a three day pass with no hope in sight, Danny meets Wanda, an incredible woman who vows to find a way to bring Danny and his fiance together.
Nora and Georgia are two eight-year-old best friends who share giggles, dolls, and secrets. But when one of them faces sudden danger, the other responds with an unconditional act of love and forges a lifelong bond between them unaffected by fear or prejudice.
So find a quiet spot, get comfy, and grab a box of Kleenex. You’re about to take an unforgettable journey of the heart, to a place where compassion and hope have no limits, and where love continues to travel forever.
