Margaret from Maine: A Novel
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: December 2012
Duration: 8 hours 51 minutes
Brought together by war, separated by duty-a love story for the ages by an author hailed as "Henry David Thoreau meets Nicholas Sparks" (Publishers Weekly)
Margaret Kennedy lives on a dairy farm in rural Maine. Her husband, Thomas, was injured in a war overseas, and he will never again be the man he was. When the president signs a bill in support of wounded veterans, Margaret is invited to the nation's capital. Charlie King, a handsome Foreign Service officer, volunteers to escort her.
As the rhododendrons blossom along the Blue Ridge Highway, the unlikely pair falls in love-but Margaret cannot ignore the tug of her marriage vows.
Like Nicholas Sparks' Dear John, Joseph Monninger's Margaret from Maine is a page-turning romance that poignantly explores the dilemmas faced by those who serve our country-and the men and women who love them.
"Monninger comes to writing with his five senses wide open."-New York Times Book Review
