The Burning Hours
by Lawrence V. Stefanile
Vince Farro, who comes from a blue-collar background in New Jersey, falls in love with Linda Conover a lovely, wealthy New England socialite and sole heir to one of the country’s largest banking fortunes. Fearing rejection, Vince leaves for military service in World War II without expressing his innermost feelings to Linda.
Tommy Tomasso and Vince were born on the same day and are inseparable. On a summer afternoon, Tommy spots Rosemary McNulty, an Irish orphan raised by nuns who is about to enter the convent; she rejects Tommy’s persistent overtures for a date. Vince and Tommy share a foxhole during the battle of the Ardennes Forest where they are seriously wounded.
The Burning Hours is a novel of young men and women caught in a wartime maelstrom. The story features richly defined heroes and heroines who demonstrate courage, devotion and self-sacrifice, and morally corrupt, cowardly and duplicitous villains. The Burning Hours is an emotional rollercoaster that explores timeless questions of the human condition.
