    Heart Touching Brilliance

    For the Love of Laura Beth (A Chicago Christmas Book 4) by Aubrey Wynne 5 Stars This is my first read by this author and I am in love..This book touched every emotion and the flow of the words were simply perfection. The only negative I have about this book was that it ended, I could have read this story for so many more pages. So I will absolutely be checking out everything else available. It only took a couple pages for me to fall completely for these characters...My heart broke when he received the letter and can't imagine how he felt knowing he had to tell his girl, and then I try to imagine how she felt when she found out he was leaving. I cried more than once while reading this story and just love how this author made me feel like I was living in 1952 and everything just felt so real and I'm sure that this story would hit hard many that lived through and experienced these exact times. I was a complete mess throughout. I can't recommend this story enough it's an awesome story written perfectly!

    A sweet 1950's romance!

    Laura Beth Walters and Joe McCall grew up together. In their teen years, they started dating. When Joe’s mum passed away, Laura Beth was there not only for Joe but for the McCall family. They both agree to wait to get married until after Joe finishes college. But the Korean War comes calling and Laura Beth didn’t want to wait any longer to get married. They married before he had to leave, opposing her father’s wishes. She’s no longer welcome in her parents’ home so she moves in with Joe’s dad and brothers. When Joe returns home, they figure their strife is over but it’s just the beginning. A family tragedy puts their marriage to the test. Can Joe’s love and support buoy Laura Beth’s grief or is it all too much? Aubrey Wynne’s gift for heartwarming historical romance is well-known and one of the things I love most about her books. She takes a time period and brings it to life through emotional storytelling and life-like characters. I felt an instant connection to Laura Beth and her story is one many women faced in the 1950’s. Her reactions to ordinary events such as meeting the parents over Thanksgiving rang true. Seeing life as a newly married army wife through her eyes was eye-opening and heartbreaking all at once. What made this so wonderful to read had to be the well-researched world building Wynne accomplished. Everything from hairstyles to clothing to fear of the unknown is spot-on and added immense depth to the story. I found myself understanding 1950’s America better for reading this romance. If you’re looking for a sweet 1950’s romance that’ll sweep you away, pick up this book right now. It’s an excellent addition to the A Chicago Christmas series and one I highly recommend. Don’t worry, it’s a standalone. Favorite Character/Quote: Laura Beth. I know she is based on the author’s mother-in-law, but she reminded me of my great-aunt. Her strength, especially in difficult circumstances endeared me to her. She has a lot to deal with in such a short time. There were times I just wanted to hug her and tell her it’ll be okay. A beautiful character based on what I can only assume is a wonderful woman. My Rating: 5 stars
