Description from the amazon:
News reporter Susan Allison is looking for the perfect story about true love, though she doubts where such a thing really exists.
Neil Thomas, Jr. wants the world to know about his parents’ bittersweet love story: On February 14, 1944, Caroline Thomas said good-bye to her beloved husband, a Navy pilot sent to the Pacific.
For fifty years, she waited for him—until a miracle happened, and she received his lost valentine…
In the present day, when Susan and Neil meet, can the story of Neil’s parents bring them together in a love as powerful as she dreams of and he remembers?
Because love means more, grows deeper, if you can overcome the thorns.

And, good syrupy moments included ;-D
Lord Alfred Tennyson's quote sums it up well...
