Paperback, 293 pages

By Karen Roth

 

A gritty tale of love and war results when Sana Toledo runs away from an arranged marriage to what she hopes is freedom: nursing school and the US Army in the year 1939. Joe Vesely, who wants to marry Sana more than anything else on earth, enlists to escape the disappointment of losing her. They meet again on a troopship in the Atlantic, poised at the edge of an epic conflict that will either destroy their lives or fulfill their hearts' desire. From the United States to Great Britain, through the desert of Algeria to the bloody hills of Kasserine, Sana's and Joe's paths cross, separate and reconnect . . . until halfway across the Sahara, Sana must face her shameful past and the cost of losing love again. Set against the volatile backdrop of a rarely told true story, My Portion Forever sweeps the reader into the delight of romance and the terror of war.
