(From the publisher):
Her Joe. Killed during the Second World War.
Rose Kaufman thought she'd never stop grieving. He died without even seeing his baby daughter. But Charlie Shapiro, Joe's war buddy, didn't die. He came home to Brooklyn and dreamed of rebuilding his shattered life. With Rose…
It's hard to believe sixty years have passed since Rose said "I do" to Charlie. Sixty years since she entered this marriage of convenience... not knowing if she'd ever love the gentle, caring man who adored her without question.
Can love be as true the second time around? For Charlie, now in his eighties, only one woman can answer that.
