HOPE RISING by Stacy Henrie

HOPE RISING by Stacy Henrie, 2014. This is a very good book so far, about a World War I Army nurse named Evelyn Gray who falls in love with a soldier named Ralph Kelley and finds herself pregnant, which means expulsion from her nursing job, but that was okay since they planned on marrying as soon as he returned from duty. Unfortunately Ralph dies during a skirmish with Evelyn’s name on his lips. His best friend Joel Campbell, who was severely injured by the attack feels responsible. Later he meets Evelyn Gray in the army hospital where he finds out he cannot father children due to a pelvic injury. Evelyn learns this and understands his anguish since he dreamed of being a father someday.  Meanwhile Evelyn and Joel become friends and he learns of her pregnancy with Ralph’s child. We can all guess what’s going to happen next.. oh the rocky road to love…

NOTE: I don’t want to give anymore away than what the blurb on the cover says, just know that this is a very good book.
