Love Finds You in In Victory Heights, Washington written by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss takes place during the second world war. This book allows readers to catch a glimpse of what life must have been like for those on the home-front, supporting the war effort.
Rosalie Madison works in the local Boeing plant, shooting rivets into B-17 bombers. She is content to help the war front as long as she isn't in the spotlight. Then reporter Kenny Davenport comes along and disrupts those plans, placing her on a roller-coaster of publicity events when she and her friend break the national record of thirty-one hundred rivets in one shift.
I truly enjoyed the threads of faith that were interwoven in this book - letting go of the hurts from the past, hope, forgiveness and trust. This book echoed truths that God has been showing me as well. I found this story captivating and encouraging. I recommend this book and found it to be a great read.

The war has stolen Rosalie’s fiancé, Vic, from her forever. But rather than wallow, Rosalie distracts herself by cramming her days full of activity—mainly by shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy.
When a reporter dubs her “
's Own Rosie the Riveter,” even more responsibility piles up. Her strong arms bear all this, but when intense feelings surface for Kenny, the handsome, kind-hearted, and spiritually unwavering reporter, the fear of losing another love propels Rosalie to leave. Seattle
It’s only when Rosalie realizes that God has brought her to this place—and this person—for a reason, the sparkling grace of God compels her to let go of her own strength and lean on His, as well as open her heart to love.
