Sherman Oaks, CA (March 6, 2014) – Against the worst odds, true love has the ability to transcend death, and leaves an indelible mark on anyone who truly loves. That’s what 93-year-old author Wendell Ware believes and shares in this love story, based on real life, making it even more compelling and heartwarming. Arise My Love and Come Away With Mealso describes the early days of aviation, which should be of interest to pilots and history buffs everywhere.
Readers will witness the love story of Wynn Cary and Doey Brooks. Set against the violent backdrop of World War II, their uniquely American journey explores the hopes, fears, passion, and call to duty that have altered the lives of young lovers since the beginning of time.
Wynn always dreamed of becoming a pilot, flying from the age of ten, and making his first solo flight as a teenager. While studying at the University of North Carolina he meets Doey Brooks, a beautiful young woman studying law at Duke University,at a local airfield. Their shared passion for flying becomes an inspiring love story that begins as a college romance and grows in depth and meaning as World War II becomes an ever-looming menace. As their relationship blossoms, the war stalls their plans to marry.
Their beautiful story harks back to a kinder, gentler time when loyalty, good manners, and personal integrity were the rule rather than the exception.
