An empty seat and a love that can withstand the trials of fate…

When Raquelita Muro takes the empty seat on the bus to avoid sitting beside her mother, she doesn’t expect to find the love of her life. But as the hours pass by on the journey from Texas to Florida, Raquelita knows that Matthew Buchanan is the one for her.

Except fate, the US Military, and an interfering mother stand between the young lovers and their destiny.

Exchanging letters in secret is their only hope as Matthew ships off to Vietnam and Raquelita and her family make a new life for themselves in Florida. And when tragedy strikes they will each be brought to the edge of what they can survive.

The course of true love never did run smooth, but will Matthew and Raquelita find each other again when half a world and an ocean of pain stand between them?

“The timeframe of this novel encompasses the Vietnam War, and Matthew will experience hardships that threaten his happiness with Raquelita. The subject is handled with respect and lends another level of emotion to this engaging book.

Ms. Saccenti writes beautifully. “They sat in silence, each immersed in the other. Words would only be superfluous. And as Raquelita and Matthew reposed, the wizened old oak, with its ancient, shading limbs, enclosed the lovers within its benevolent protection for a long, long, while.”

Passages such as this are throughout the book and brought a smile to this lover of words. 5 stars.”
