Abigail Walker, a young woman from rural South Carolina, is on the cusp of womanhood, aching to be able to run wild as the younger children do, yet yearning for things she has yet to understand.
Awkward and unsure of herself, Abby is flustered when she meets Harvey Nicholas, a cadet from Clemson College. As summer begins, Abby finds herself constantly in the company of Harvey and falling quickly in love with him.
As rumors of war begin to reach the States, Abby begins to fear what may come for her older brother and Harvey.
Once Pearl Harbor is bombed, the boys are eager to protect their home and the women they love. But will Abby and Harvey’s love be able to withstand distance, rumors, loss, and hurt? Or will the war be what tears apart Abby’s heart?
War-Torn Heart is a kleenex-box book with a story of hope, of love, and of perseverance through World War II, which will make the reader cry, scream, and long for more.

“He’ll be back before next Christmas,” Harvey reassured her. His arm went over her shoulder, drawing her close.
“Do you think?”
“Of course, Abby.”
She looked down, knowing what was to come of this conversation. She felt a lump rise in her throat. She had to ask. “And you? When will you be back?”
“You know I have to go, Abby.”
“I know; I won’t argue with you.”
“You won’t?” He seemed genuinely surprised as he put his finger under her chin and lifted her gaze.
“I’ve done a lot of thinking and praying this week,” Abby told him as she searched his eyes. “And I know I can’t keep you from going. I wish I could, but I know I can’t, and I know you and Peter need to go so you can defend our country and home. I have been praying and will continue to pray to God that you will be returned home safely.”
Harvey pulled her closer. Abby buried her head in his shoulder, fighting tears, praying for them to stay away. Amazingly, they did. “I’m fine, Harvey; I’m fine,” she said, looking up. “See? No tears.” She blinked a few times for effect and was thankful when no tears spilled over her cheek.
“You’re stronger than you think you are,” he said.
“No, I’m not. God is the root of my strength. ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,’” she quoted.
