TO THE FARTHEST SHORES
By Elizabeth Camden




Elizabeth Camden
Elizabeth Camden is the author of nine historical novels and has been honored with the RITA Award, the Christy Award, and the Carol Award. With a master’s in history and a master’s in library science, she is a research librarian by day and scribbles away on her next novel by night. She lives with her husband in Florida. Learn more at her website.  


From the book’s back cover:
The unpredictability of her upbringing prepared army nurse Jenny Bennett to face any challenge at the Presidio Army base, but the sudden reappearance in her life of the dashing naval officer who broke her heart six years ago is enough to rattle even her.


Lieutenant Ryan Gallagher is one of the few men in the world qualified to carry out a daring government mission overseas—an assignment that destroyed his reputation and broke the heart of the only woman he ever loved. Honor-bound never to reveal where he was during those years, he can’t tell Jenny the truth, or it will endanger an ongoing mission and put thousands of lives at risk.

Ryan thinks he may have finally found a solution to his impossible situation, but he needs Jenny’s help. While her loyalty to her country compels her to agree, she was too badly hurt to fall for Ryan again despite his determination to win her back. When an unknown threat from Ryan’s past puts everything at risk—including his life—can they overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against them in time?


From Jo:
Elizabeth Camden has written an absolutely beautiful love story between a U.S. Navy man and a civilian nurse. When the Navy sends him on a highly secretive mission, it destroys his reputation and breaks her heart. He’s honor-bound not to reveal where he was or what he was doing while he was away. His telling would jeopardize countless lives and also the continuing mission. The couple battles continuous conflict when he tries to persuade her to take him back. The story is full of twists and turns that keep the reader turning pages. I love Elizabeth Camden’s stories!

  10. It would be amazing to win this book! I married a Navy man. He was in for 6 years during Vietnam but never went to sea. I got to spend four years on Guam with him. We were also stationed in Homestead, Florida and Portsmouth, Virginia. Thanks paulams49ATsbcglobalDOTnet

  11. I always love Elizabeth Camden's books. She always highlights a part of history that may not be generally well known and writes about it in a way that the reader always gains a better understanding of what happened then. To the Farthest Shores has been on my "want to read" list for awhile. It would be terrific to win it. Thanks for the chance.
