In 1971, Frank Henderson left his home and his new wife, Nancy, to fight in the Vietnam War. As you will read, the distance would neither quell their passion nor stop their love. Rather, in the face of such adversity, the love that Nancy and Frank shared would grow.
Through the handwritten letters that Frank wrote to Nancy as well as Nancy's, personal recollections of the era, you will experience feelings of desperation and exaltation, you will laugh at the foibles of crossed signals caused by sometimes unreliable letter delivery, and you will cry with joy at this book's surprising conclusion.
In War & Commitment, you will experience the continuation of a love story like no other -- a love story that began at "happily ever after."

About the Author
Howdy and Welcome to my Author Page, I would like to tell you a little about myself.
I was born in Hico, Texas. My parents are James and Mary Blakley. Having four brothers, being number two in the pecking order, and being the only girl was a priceless experience.
In 1968, I married my soulmate, Frank Henderson, in a little Methodist Church in Van Vleck, Texas. At the time Frank was in the Army, so we traveled to Massachusetts and Okinawa.
Being a firm believer in that anyone can do whatever they set their mind to do, I have taken on many jobs during my life.
First of all, I was a devoted wife to Frank then when God chose the right time for us; I became a mother to a son, Scott.
All of the jobs I have undertaken were fun and different. I have worked in a factory on an assembly line, driven an eighty passenger school bus, owned a Florist Shop, worked as a receptionist in a Doctor's office, and became a certified Pharmacy Technician at the age of fifty.
Hobbies include sewing, knitting, crocheting, gardening, quilting, tatting, but I also do exciting things like plumbing, mowing, weed-eating, roofing, and anything else that might come my way. Because of my love of pearls and lace, most of the time, you will see me in coveralls wearing pearls and lace.
After twenty-nine years of marriage in 1997, I became a widow and have been a widow for twenty-two years. Frank will always own my heart, and I will remain Frank's wife for eternity.
Four years ago, after saying a prayer to God for a purpose, I had a dream leading me to a cedar chest hidden away in a shed. This cedar chest contained a box of letters written to me by Frank while he was in Vietnam in 1971, Once rereading them after forty- four years, I knew God had a message for me to share which set me on a path to writing my Memoir which added one more exciting job to my resume.
Just for fun and because of loving humor, I also write Widow's Blogs laughing at myself and relaying to you instructions of what not to do as a widow. Sometimes, I also write blogs about my thoughts on things.
So, now you know a little bit about this Author. Praying you will read and enjoy my books as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you. God Bless You.
