WAIT FOR ME (Book 1 in the West Virginia Mountains Series)
A sweet Southern historical romance
by Jo Huddleston
Can Julie, an only child raised with privilege and groomed for high society, and Robby, a coal miner’s son, escape the binds of their socioeconomic backgrounds? Set in a coal mining community in West Virginia in the 1950s, can their love survive their cultural boundaries?
Wait for Me is a tragically beautiful love story of a simple yet deep love between two soul mates, Robby and Julie. The American South’s rigid caste system and her mother demand that Julie chooses to marry an ambitious young man from a prominent and suitable family. Julie counters her mother’s stringent social rules with deception and secrets in order to keep Robby in her life. Can the couple break the shackles of polite society and spend their lives together?
“Jo Huddleston’s characters come to life as does this sweet and wonderful mid-century love story about two young people who come from different spectrums of society. Julie’s mother, a rather snobbish socialite, has her mind set on Julie marrying someone of wealth and prominence; however, what Julie’s heart dictates regarding the man with whom she’s falling in love, Robby, a coal miner’s son, and what her mother deems acceptable by no means match up. This author writes with colorful detail, setting us body and soul into the story. This is the first in a series titled “West Virginia Mountains.” I already look forward to the subsequent installments.
