Now available for the first time in one trade paperback volume, here are two romances from New York Times bestselling author Dorothy Garlock: With Heart and its sequel After the Parade.
WITH HEART: Tillison County, Oklahoma, 1938. Though scarcity and hardship have taken their toll on the spirit of the nation, one young woman still dares to dream. Kathleen Dolan has high hopes for her investment in the Rawlings, Oklahoma, Gazette. But the feisty newspaper woman hasn’t even reached the city limits when trouble strikes. Hijackers try to steal her old Nash, and though handsome rancher Johnny Henry rides to her rescue, the attack is only a taste of the perils to come. For Rawlings is a town steeped in dirty secrets, and soon, though Johnny tries to shield her, Kathleen will find herself pitted against a powerful man and his unscrupulous cronies–men who will go to any lengths to silence this gutsy redhead and the man she loves.
AFTER THE PARADE: Rawlings, Oklahoma, 1945. Johnny Henry is coming home from the Pacific, and his estranged wife, Kathleen, secretly watches him step off the train to a hero’s welcome. Her heart races when she sees him; his breaks when he doesn’t spot her. Misunderstanding and tragedy had destroyed their marriage before he shipped out. Now Johnny’s pride will keep him from confessing how wrong he had been; now Kathleen’s hurt will stop her from running into his arms. But when a disturbed stalker plunges Kathleen into a real-life nightmare, her only hope is Johnny–and a love that can bring two hearts through every battle, especially the one within.
