It is 1943 in Beaumont, Texas, and Barton Barre's life has just veered from a carefully planned path to fame and fortune. After a drunken night with friends, the recent college graduate is coerced into volunteering for the army. With fate and perhaps the legacy of the La Barre family curse hovering over him, Barton signs on for officers' training and begins serving in England. It is not long after D-Day when Barton finds himself in France, the same area his father once fought in during the summer of 1918. Intrigued by the contents of an earlier letter from his father, Bart searches to find the truths behind a family mystery. Meanwhile back home in America, the Barre family and Bart's pen pal, Elise Boulanger, spends their days fretting about him and attempting to survive the hardships of war rationing. Elise is torn by her devotion for Bart-a man she met only once-and a blossoming new romance. She and the Barre family have no idea that as Bart battles loneliness and worry amid the chaos of war, destiny waits to play a cruel joker card. qLegends of Warq is the second book in the qLa Barre Family Sagaq-it is a compelling and heartfelt story of fractured families' lives both at home in America and on the battlefield in Europe during World War II.... at the magazine to see beautiful, curvaceous, proudlooking women with big, dark, long-lashed eyes, full red lips, and sultry looks. ... like in the photo and put on her best pouting starlet moue; she batted her eyes as she posed like the model in the picture. ...
