Just once : a novel

Kingsbury, Karen (author.).

Summary: 1941, Bloomington, Indiana. Irvel Ellis is too focused on her secret to take much notice in the war raging overseas. She's dating Sam but in love with his brother, Hank. When Pearl Harbor is attacked, their lives are turned upside down overnight, Sam is drafted; Hank wants to enlist, but Sam insists he stay home and take up the battle on the home front. While Sam fights in Europe, an undeniable chemistry builds between Irvel and Hank but neither would dare cross that line. When a devastating telegram comes, Hank enlists the next day and has just two weeks until he ships out. Years later, Hank and Irvel make a series of VHS tapes for her to play as she sinks into Alzheimer's, determined to keep some of her memories alive. - adapted from publisher info and perusal of book
