Happy “Sunday Sundaes”! I have a #OneScoopOrTwo treat that will have you asking for two – despite bikini season.
Always, Almond Fudge by Charlotte O’Shay is a story within a story (like The Princess Bride) of the main character’s great-grandparents. The love story, set in WWII New England, pulled my heartstrings. Despite the descendants telling the story, the looming war added extra suspense to their story. Beautiful, sweet, and emotional, this book brought tears to my eyes multiple times. Merry is the sweetest heroine and Tony is her perfect match.
I give this book 5 stars only because it isn’t possible to give it 6. This is one summer read you do not want to miss.
Here’s the blurb:
It’s the summer of 1941 in the seaside town of Langford, Rhode Island, and seventeen-year-old Meredith Franklin works as a server at Seymore’s Ice Cream Shoppe.
When aspiring baseball player Anthony Fanelli strolls into the ice cream shop, his teasing banter leads to romantic sparks and dreams of forever love.
Their whirlwind courtship comes to an abrupt halt on December 7, 1941, when America enters World War Two, forcing the couple to put their future on hold.
Decades later, a treasure trove of wartime letters details the romance of Merry and Anthony and the sacrifices of a generation.
