Oh my cute.
I absolutely adored this novella! Charlotte O’Shay not only managed to write an adorable, heart-warming love story, but she brought in a little bit of history and the heartache war brings. Always, Almond Fudge is a great addition to the One Scoop or Two series and is a must read for those looking for a sweet, short read with all the feels. Loved this one!
My rating: 5 stars
Oh, gosh , let the floor open and absorb her along with her embarrassment. She’d stopped serving her customer, mid-scoop, to drool over the good-looking fellow at the back of the shop. Heat suffused her already overheated skin as she jerked her gaze away from him and collected herself. But not before she caught his mischievous grin. This would never do.
On a lengthy car ride to their annual seaside vacation, a mother recounts the true story of a sweet family tradition.
It’s the summer of 1941 in the seaside town of Langford, Rhode Island, and seventeen-year-old Meredith Franklin works as a server at Seymore’s Ice Cream Shoppe. When aspiring baseball player Anthony Fanelli strolls into the ice cream shop, his teasing banter leads to romantic sparks and dreams of forever love. Their whirlwind courtship comes to an abrupt halt on December 7, 1941, when America enters World War Two, forcing the couple to put their future on hold.
Decades later, a treasure trove of wartime letters details the romance of Merry and Anthony and the sacrifices of a generation.
