A time travel set in the UK in 1947 after WWII.

Loren Fairchild longs for children, but is barren. At a cottage in Carlisle, UK, she puts her divorce behind her and begins a new life. In 1947 the former owner’s wife disappeared. That same week, according to local gossip, her husband took up with a dark-headed harlot. One morning in 2007, a simple-minded woman appears at Loren’s cottage and triggers events that change Loren’s life forever.

Miles Chapeau misses the wife, the mother of his two children, he’d known before the war. When he returned from WWII in 1945, he learned she’d been hurt in an air raid and has the mind of a child. He loves her and would never forsake his duty, but misses the intimate side of marriage and a woman to share his life. One day she disappears and his existence is turned upside down.

Excerpt
Miles woke and lay staring at the ceiling listening to the quiet of the house. This was his favorite time of the day. Rays of sunlight danced on the far wall, coloring the wallpaper orange. Miriam was sleeping quietly—a little too quietly. He glanced over, alarmed to see that she was gone.
Damn! He’d suspected she’d been hiding her pills in her mouth and pretending to swallow them. How she stood the bitter taste until she could get them out, he didn’t know. Maybe her taste buds were affected by the injury to her head.
Half dressed in pants and shoes, he ran down the stairs and out the back door. Both gazebo doors stood wide open. “Miriam. Miriam! Where are you?” It was light enough to see she wasn’t anywhere in the open. Dread clutched at his heart as he strode toward the pond. He breathed a sigh of relief to see that she wasn’t floating in the water. But, where was she? He strode quickly to the trees, searching behind every bush.
Irene called from the gazebo. “Should I call the constable?”
“Yes! Call the neighbors, too,” he yelled back.

You Gotta Read Reviews
"Wow, what a page turner. I was shocked how much I truly enjoyed this book. Not that I thought Ms. LaRoque's book was going to be bad, but I just didn't think that a book with this page length (kinda short) could be this detailed. Linda was able to put the entire story into a perfect little package. There were no frivolous words, or scenes. Only perfect symmetry and lovable characters. I will tell you the first page made me want to reach through my computer screen and throttle someone, but hey, she caught me with the first sentence."
