The Final Song
The Korean War looms large, and things will never be the same again. How can the Stilwell family cope with a world changed by war and heading into yet another?
“All I want is loving you and music, music, music,” Ava sings out with the big band what she has learned first-hand since the war. Her husband, her family, and her music are what really matter to her, and she will do everything she can to preserve them.
A world still reeling from World War II is not ready for another, but the fight against communism is bringing a new conflict. Mothers must once again fear for their sons’ lives, and soldiers, including James Stilwell, must decide if they will return to the battlefield.
Meanwhile, can an unlikely, distant romance brought about by the war continue? How does a young mother care for her son and help a husband who cannot acclimate to the post-war world? How do mid-twentieth century women manage family, work, and continual social change? Faith and love guide the Stilwell family through one war to another.
The Final Song is an inspirational, historical fiction novel and the third book of The War Song Series.
