Julia's Gifts by Ellen Gable

Julia, a young girl on the cusp of World War I, dreams of a man whom she’s never met, a man destined to be her beloved. Light of hair and gentle of nature, she imagines the perfect man to become her husband. With great faith, she buys gifts for that future love. A watch, a journal, and a miraculous medal is joined by a warm pair of socks that she knits herself. Then, war breaks out and Julia is carried to France to help the wounded and dying in a strange land filled with pain and anguish. Here amidst hospital tents and suffering soldiers, she meets Peter, a man so different from the beloved she has imagined. And yet, the gifts she has purchased just seem to end up in Peter’s hands.

Another Great Novel by Ellen Gable! See my review tomorrow!

As a young girl, Julia began buying gifts for her future spouse, a man whose likeness and personality she has conjured up in her mind, a man she calls her “beloved.” Soon after the United States enters the Great War, Julia impulsively volunteers as a medical aid worker, with no experience or training. Disheartened by the realities of war, will Julia abandon the pursuit of her beloved? Will her naïve ‘gift scheme’ distract her from recognizing her true “Great Love?” From Philadelphia to war-torn France, follow Julia as she transitions from unworldly young woman to compassionate volunteer. http://www.fullquiverpublishing.com/our-publications/great-war-great-love-series-julias-gifts-by-ellen-ga
