Mary’s Language Skills Could Help End the War in the Pacific
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
Mary Wishram, an orphaned Yakima tribal member, aches for her brother who suffers in a POW camp in the Philippine Islands and her Japanese friends who languish in a relocation center. Determined to end the war by any means necessary, she employs her language skills to become a spy. Leaving Camp Pendleton for the South Pacific, she faces escalating threats of peril to help bring her loved ones home.
John Painted Horse, a proud Navajo, struggles with the loss of his father who died in WWI for a country that didn’t consider him a United States citizen. Though his home state doesn’t offer him the right to vote, he joins the Code Talker program at Camp Pendleton. Thrust into mounting danger in the South Pacific, he hopes to bring long overdue recognition and honor to his people, no matter the cost.
Will these two wounded souls find healing from their past traumas and a deeper relationship with God, before it’s too late? Or will they lose their chance at love, and everything they hold dear?

    Adventure & Romance in WWII

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Jul 01, 2023

    Author Debby Lee weaves historical facts into her fictional story of Mary Wishram, a member of the Yakama Indian tribe who offers to aid the war effort by becoming a spy. Will her willingness to become a spy help bring her missing POW brother home safely and also help her Japanese friends who are in an internment camp? This new book is the latest addition to the Heroines of WWII series and it's a tribute to a special group of heroes who used their native language to transmit secret Allied messages in the Pacific during the war. Lee blends these facts with a romance between Mary and John Painted Pony, a Navajo Marine who is secretly a Code Talker. Will their romance survive the differences between their two tribes, the secrets that follow them, and the immense danger of serving in WWII? Beneath a Peaceful Moon is an enjoyable blend of history, romance, and a faith message that reminds us that God is always with us, in good times and bad, during war or in peace. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
