The Camelot-like love she longs for seems like only a dream until she meets the handsome Kincaid Patterson, a West Point graduate who carries a dark secret from his past.
Theirs is a passionate and unconditional love that has to confront a painful past, heart-searing separation, and the greatest of all tragedies. But the biggest obstacle is the loss of faith that threatens to undermine all that they have.
Set in the South during the 1960s and 70s against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Save My Place is a beautifully written love story of two people who search deep within their souls to save each other.
Olivia deBelle Byrd is a self-proclaimed Southern Belle who resides in Panama City, Florida, with her husband, Tommy. She is the author of Save My Place & Miss Hildreth Wore Brown--Anecdotes of a Southern Belle.
My review for Miss Hildreth Wore Brown
A quick read!
Though make sure to have a tissue or two for the end. What a powerful ending it was too.
I just loved how the author told this story. Period.
It was told from Elizabeth's point of view, but added touches of the letters written by her husband. His viewpoint made the story poignant, which essentially gave the story is guts.
The author takes you through Elizabeth's life, mostly after Kincaid, and it's a vivid look too. While reading the ending I already gushed about, I had to remind myself it was just a story. She pulled me in that far though, that the emotion felt real and raw. Not what I expected at all, to be honest. I read Miss Hildreth Wore Brown, which is a complete bi-polar opposite of this story, and wasn't expecting this side of the author's writing. I thought it would be mostly wit. I am so glad I was wrong. It shows how talented Olivia is. She can write hilarious tales of a southern belle, or life sagas that pull you in emotionally. I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!
