Along Came A Soldier is a page turner in the style of June Harman Betts' first two books, Father Was A Caveman and We Were Vagabonds. It recreates the life of an American family immediately following World War II into the turbulent years of the Vietnam era.
At the end of the war, when the world is again at peace, the young girl has no idea she is the answer to a dying old man's prayer when along comes a soldier into her life. Whether it is the power of the unknown prayer or the persistence of the brash young man, that chance meeting changes her life and that of her family forever.
People that readers have come to know and love in Father Was A Caveman and We Were Vagabonds are back. They are joined by fascinating ,spicy, new characters that the author brings to such vivid life that you feel you know them or wish you did.
The young couple live through the days of change. They witness the transition of propeller driven planes to high-speed jets, of radio and theatre to stereo and a TV set, of leisurely neighborhood strolls around the square to galactic space flights and moonwalks. They experience the advent of baby boomers, rock 'n' roll, the cold war and other unwinnable wars. They don't think of themselves as being part of history, they are simply going about the business of living their lives as the world changes around them.
As a loving family , they deal with things that go bump in the night, runaway children, a stranger's attack on a daughter, and the loss of loved ones. On a happier note, the soldier's sense of fun ensures that there are few dull moments.
