Author Joe Bonsall is well known for holding up his one-fourth of the Oak Ridge Boys quartet. As an author, Joe can also hit some high notes as he tells this beautiful and moving account of his parents, Joe and Lillie Bonsall. A young man from Philadelphia volunteers for service to escape a harsh home life and winds up charging Utah Beach on D-Day, while a girl from North Carolina runs away from home to join the WAC’s. How they meet, fall in love, and make it through life’s triumphs and tragedies are told in detail in this moving story, complete with photo section. “If you like war stories, you will love this book. If you like romance, you will love this book, if you love God and enjoy reading about faith, dedication, and real love through times of trial you also will love this book,” shares Bonsall.
