Caroline Warfield, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.
The Last Post (novella in Follow Your Star Home) by Caroline Warfield
Genre: Historical Holiday Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Love for Rosemarie Legrand gave Harry the will to go on during the horror of trench warfare. Now, army orders trap him in a camp awaiting repatriation. A bout of the Spanish flu lays him even lower, but he is determined not to leave without her. He’ll desert if he has to.
Rosemarie waits for word on her cousin’s farm where she took refuge when war reached the outskirts of Amiens. She wrote to tell him. Has he forgotten her? When the slimmest of information arrives, she sets out to find him.
Can these two lovers reunite before it is too late? How can he marry her if he can’t find her?
Why did you write this book?
The Last Post is a sequel to “Roses in Picardy,” which was in last year’s anthology. “Roses” ended with them happy-for-now in December 1916 with the Great War still raging around Rosemarie’s little cottage near Amiens, and my readers demanded to know how it turned out.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read historical anything: romance, mystery, non-fiction, literary fiction, children’s books…as long as it is historical, I’ll read it.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
One! Dorothy Dunnett’s Crawford of Lymond, Mary Balogh’s Duke of Bewcastle, Carla Kelly’s Able Six are some of them.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m writing another anthology novella, this one set in Bath and culminating in a Valentine’s Day Ball. The hero is a battered old sergeant with a heart of gold. I’m also scoping out the next book in my Children of Empire saga. This one may land in Egypt during a rebellion against the Ottoman Empire.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll have the first of a new set of three stories for Children of Empire by mid year. I also plan to write the middle passages between Roses in Picardy and The Last Post, and release it as a full length novel.
