Legends of War (Book 2)
It is 1943 in Beaumont Texas, and Barton Barre's life has just veered from a carefully planned path to fame and fortune. After a drunken night with friends, the recent college graduate is coerced into volunteering for the army. With fate and perhaps the La Barre legacy curse hovering over him, Barton signs on for officer's training in the POL and by Autumn is serving in England on an airbase.
It is not long after D-Day that Barton finds himself in France, the same area as his father Richard once fought in during the summer of 1918. Intrigued by the contents of a previous letter from his father, Bart searches for the truths behind a family mystery.
Meanwhile back at home in America, the Barre family and Bart's pen pal, Elise Boulanger, spend too much time worrying over him and attempting to survive the hardships of war rationing. Elise is torn by her devotion for Bart-a man she met once at a War Bonds Dance, and a blossoming new romance. She and the Barre family have no idea that as Bart battles loneliness and worry amid the chaos of war, destiny waits to play the cruel joker card.
Legends of War is the second book of the La Barre Family series. It is a compelling and heartfelt story of fractured families' lives both at home in America and on the battlefields of Europe during WW II.
