Summary: Every so often that story comes along that reminds us of what it's like to experience love for the first time-against the odds, when you least expect it, and with such passion that it completely changes you forever. &nbsp An unexpected discovery takes eighty-four-year-old Lily Davis Woodward to 1945, and the five days that forever changed her life. Married for only a week before her husband was sent to fight in WWII, Lily is anxious for his return, and the chance to begin their life together. In honor of the soldiers' homecoming, the small Georgia town of Toccoa plans a big celebration. And Jake Russo, a handsome Italian immigrant, also back from war, is responsible for the elaborate fireworks display the town commissioned. But after a chance encounter in a star-lit field, he steals Lily's heart and soul - and fulfills her in ways her socially-minded, upper-class family cannot. Now, torn by duty to society and her husband - and the poor, passionate man who might be her only true love - Lily must choose between a commitment she's already made and a love she's never known before. &nbsp Fireworks Over Toccoa takes us to a moment in time that will resonate with readers long after the book's unforgettable conclusion. A devastating and poignant story, this debut novel will resonate with anyone who believes in love.
