General Turpentine stared at the book lying on his desk. The image of the scarecrow on the cover didn’t faze him. He had seen worst things—like men getting blown to bits. War. It was over for many but not for him.
He opened the drawer and removed the Christmas card. He read it again. It simply said, “Merry Christmas, James and Happy New Year. Maddie.”
He received it last week. There was no return address. He sighed. “Oh, Maddie, where are you?”
Jane watched him through the ajar door. He was reading that card again. Who was it from?
This story is the continuation of the series about a married US army general who meets and falls in love with Maddie, a colored nurse stationed in North Africa during the second World War.
