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?

Romantic quote:
Because love means more, grows deeper, if you can overcome the thorns.
- page 112, chapter 8, Raven Leader

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): rose
A couple sentimental romances are portrayed in this book.

Also, a look into WWII action in the Philippines.

And, good syrupy moments included ;-D

Lord Alfred Tennyson's quote sums it up well...

"Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all."

I do plan on watching the movie version of this.
