After his plane was shot down over the French countryside, Gideon returned home to New Orleans from the Great War broken in mind, body, and spirit. He has struggled for three years to heal himself and find his place in the world. Will his beautiful new nurse, Ida Mae offer him the redemption he seeks? The loss of her husband and her father to the Spanish Flu set Ida Mae on her own healing path. But the life she’s determined to live helping others does not include the assistance of a man. Can these two deeply scarred people find happiness with each other?
Set in the free-wheeling 1920s of vibrant New Orleans, The Flapper and the Flyboy brims with dynamic characters, historically rich settings, and the redeeming power of love. This story was previously published in a significantly shorter format in 2017.
