When it comes to writing top-notch stories, Linda Ellen doesn’t disappoint. She already has one series under her belt, The Cherished Memories series, and is currently working on her third book in her new Soldiers of Swing series. Her Blue-Eyed Corporal is the sequel to Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant and it is as wonderfully written as the first! Taking place in Louisville, Kentucky and Charlestown, Indiana, this story follows Mary June and Corporal Steve Wheeler, who were featured in Her Blue-Eyed Sergeant as Viv’s best friend and Gene’s identical brother, respectively. Ms. Ellen takes the reader through the courtship of Mary June, a bank teller who moonlights as a USO Junior Hostess, and Steve Wheeler, a Corporal stationed at the Indiana Army Ammunition plant. On the outside, Mary June and Steve appear to be an odd match, but as the story develops the reader discovers that Mary June and Steve are actually a perfect match for each other, whether they know it or not…
I love Linda Ellen’s writing style. When reading one of her stories, you actually feel like you’ve stepped into the book and are living right alongside the characters. She expertly weaves a story that not only has an interesting and entertaining plot, but also well developed relatable characters. She draws the reader in immediately and keeps them hooked until the very end. Mrs. Ellen also includes historical details and facts within each of her stories which not only adds depth to the plot, but also helps the reader get a better understanding of the time period and the characters themselves. Her Blue-Eyed Corporal is a beautiful read, one that will take your heart on an adventure. It’s a book you don’t want to miss out on.
