Sneak Peek! Coming Soon
In the play, Finian’s Rainbow, the lead character advises, “Look to the rainbow. Follow the fellow who follows a dream.” As a child, Colleen L. Reece dreamed of some day writing a book, but her little logging town grew trees, not authors. She decided to become a nurse. Although it didn’t happen, Colleen’s interest in nursing led to the creation of many nurse heroines.
Among her favorites is Candace Thatcher. “Candleshine” dedicates her life to nursing then loses her heart to a brave Marine lieutenant while stranded on a Pacific island. Interviews with a World War 2 veteran and a good pilot friend provided a wealth of actual experiences. Some are used in this novel.
