It’s #RIAuthor Month! Meet Regina Andrews

Spotlight on Love

Ever-dutiful, Nurse Helen Middleton is a successful Emergency Room Supervisor at Rhode Island Hospital in December, 1941. To help her family through tough economic times, she has sacrificed her dreams of a singing career for steadier employment.

Things change when she meets William ‘Red’ Williamson, a dynamic and compelling man she finds irresistible. As they to get to know each other, Helen considers following her musical dreams and a new world of romance and song seems to be opening up to her.

Then, the horrors of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 change the world and throw Red and Helen into the danger and chaos of wartime. Will Helen’s dreams be shattered by World War II or will the power of love triumph over all the obstacles in their way?

Spotlight on Love is actually based on the author’s parents’ love story. Her mother was a nurse in World War II and her father coordinated the Postal Service in Algeria during the war. As a child (and older!), Regina listened to their stories over and over again.

  1. Hi Regina,
    This sounds like a compelling love story, especially since it is based on your parents. I look forward to reading it.


  2. Thanks again Martha for giving these authors the opportunity to share their books on your blog. I am fascinated with World War II stories. This sounds like a winner because it is written from the perspective of two people who had their lives changed in an instant. They not only loved to tell the story but had Regina. What a tribute to your parents!


  3. Thank you for featuring me today, Martha. Your blog is outstanding. So many talented authors in Lil’ Rhody!

    It is so wonderful to have a chance to share my parents’ unique love story with your readers.

    No wonder I’m a romance writer! 😉


  4. Gina is a well-respected and achieved author of romance novels. Taking a part of her parents’ history and turning it into words for all to read is a gift few possess, but Regina Andrews pulls it off quite nicely. Although I’m not a huge fan of romance novels, this one might just be what you’re looking for on one of those cold winter days in Rhode Island.


  5. This Book appeals to me to due to the history involved with authors’ S parents. Wonderful to hear.
    It’s 4 AM in Alaska as I’m typing this …hope it’s clear.


  6. How exciting for this author to share her parents story in this way. I am interested in reading this story.
    Thank you for a opportunity to win a copy.
