“One hundred and twenty Marines wounded. Eighteen dead. All for one lousy hill.”
Corpsman Orrin Connor’s faithful letters with a touching twist shield his parents from the horrors of war. His buddy Rawley Armstrong’s poignant letters give his sister the harrowing truths. Throughout their dangerous assignments during the Korean War, they debate the consequences of their choices. Orrin gains comfort in downplaying his experiences while Rawley feels a healing purge. As they get to know the Marines in their charge, the corpsmen gather a variety of opinions. Although Orrin and Rawley disagree, their friendship remains true until the bitter end.
“It all happened within minutes. For some, it would last a lifetime.”
Based on her father’s letters to his parents throughout the Forgotten War, author Christina Thompson has produced this work of historical fiction to pay tribute to Navy corpsmen by remembering their service to their brothers and their country. Imagining her father had guarded his parents from the carnage of war, Christina elaborates on what could have happened while staying true to the dates and experiences her father shared in his actual letters.
My historical fiction, Dearest Mother and Dad, is a labor of love, and now it’s available as an AUDIOBOOK. Just in time for Memorial Day!
After reading through the letters my dad wrote to his parents during the Korean War about his experiences, I finally understood why he was hard and emotionally absent. It took me two years to write the story. Then, it took me another year to turn the novel into an audiobook. There was only one narrator for this job—Gary Bennett.
Gary had narrated my romantic thriller Chemical Attraction through 48fourteen Publishing. He did an incredible job, and my mom fell in love with his voice. So, for us, this was a no-brainer. We were not disappointed.
Gary’s narration gave Orrin and Rawley’s friendship the perfect amount of emotion. In fact, as I listened I cried. Then, at the last line of the story, I sobbed. It hit me hard. I miss my dad and all of his gruff.
I am so proud of this collaboration. I think my dad—who was a fan of books on tape—would have loved it, too. Thank you, Gary.
The AUDIOBOOK for Dearest Mother and Dad is NOW available on AUDIBLE
