THE WIDOW OF CONARD COUNTY (4.5) by Rachel Lee: War widow Sharon Majors thought she had herself talked into living again when a stranger appears and brings the ghost of her husband with him. Liam O’Connor has lost much to war — not only his best buddy but almost his life. Right now he just needs to deliver a long-overdue letter written by a fallen soldier to his wife. They share a loss, but with love and fate on their side they could share a future that heals their wounds. Lee’s poignant, tragic tale of loss brings to light the suffering of many returning vets; her anguish-filled dialogue makes it real. Her duo is damaged but determinedly hopeful to succeed, and their adventure is a joy to share. Brava!
