    A beautiful journey into the past! I loved it!

    What an absolutely lovely read! Platform Four - A Legacy Falls Romance tells the wartime story of a chance encounter between a soldier and a woman, at a train station in a small town. Ada, the strong-willed and loyal provider of snacks and cigarettes for the weary travelers she services daily meets Garreth, the native NYer with the Irish brogue, going off to fight the Germans during WWII. Their easy banter, their polite flirting and their stolen glances in the 5 hours they spend together are just the beginning to a long-term relationship via letters they trade almost daily while he is away. And just from those letters, excerpts that are shared in this novella, we get to watch as Ada and Garreth fall deeply in love, knowing in their heart of hearts that their brief time together was only the start to love that was meant to be forever. The author gives us a close-up view as to life back in 1944 and 1945 and all the sacrifices both the soldiers and those left behind endured. Ada's small town suffered greatly with devastating loss and this was happening everywhere. I shed a tear more than once for the unbelievable sadness and desperation felt each and every day. Never knowing if your loved one would make it home and not knowing how to carry on despite all the uncertainty. Family was of extreme importance during those uneasy days and this novella captures that feeling perfectly. The tenderness, the sweet desire that both Ada and Garreth relayed to each other in their letters was the soul of this book. I loved every word and enjoyed this refreshing departure from most of the more erotic books that I tend to favor. Eden Butler wrote a touching novella that I encourage everyone to read to experience a love that is simply beautiful. Life was much simpler back then but no less intriguing. A solid 5 stars!
