about

WithInto the Storm, Lisa Bingham wove a spellbinding romance set during the Blitz. Now, she turns her eye to the Pacific in this gorgeous WWII tale of courage, fear, and love on an island doomed to fall.

At the dawn of WWII, the Philippines is a haven for those intent on shedding their pasts and reinventing themselves. Lt. Riley Gilhouley-The Great Gilhouley-keeps the troops well stocked in contraband as he seeks the attention of Maj. Rosemary Dodd, a by-the-book officer who leads her nurses with expert care. Ex-priest John Macklin searches for absolution, but finds himself tangling with Glory Bee O'Halloran, a stripper hired to take off just enough clothing to throw the troops into a frenzy.

But when, mere hours after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the Japanese attack the Philippines, the island haven explodes into the chaos of battle.

Thrown from the passion of Gilhouley's arms into the harsh realities of war, Rosemary begins to question everything she once held dear. As their stolen moments together blossom into something more, Gilhouley's secret missions behind enemy lines threaten to end what has only begun. Trapped, Glory Bee has nowhere to run, putting herself and her secret, unborn child in danger. All too quickly, the only thing separating her from the advancing enemy is a fallen priest with a haunted past who promises to keep her safe. The two of them are drawn together in a desperate bid for survival, but John knows his growing love for Glory Bee is at odds with his need to strike back at an old enemy.

Set amid the heartbreak of a besieged country waiting in vain for help to arrive, this stunning novel blends a meticulous eye for history with limitless heart. Bingham, a master of the genre, has penned a novel that will stand the test of time.
Lisa Bingham is a self-described "write-aholic." If she had her way, she would spend most of her day spinning stories. But reality often intrudes in the form of ninth-grade English students, a rambunctious toddler, an adoring husband, and an ornery tabby cat.Her life is busy-sometimes crazy-but she is also dedicated to the pursuit of p...

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A WWII Historical Romance Novel! After the Fall by Lisa Bingham is a historical novel that starts in early December of 1941 in the Philippines. Major Rosemary Dodd is in charge of the nurses at Fort Stotsenberg. She has been in the Pacific for twelve years and is celebrating another birthday. Her parents keep wanting to know when she will come home. At first they wanted her to marry and settle down, but now that she has hit 40 they want her to take care of them. Rosemary is attracted to Riley Patrick Gilhouley. He is assigned to the press corp and is known as the person who can get things. They two get together one evening and the next day their world will never be the same again. Glory Bee O’Halloran is a strip tease artist. She has come to do a performance for the troops at Fort Stotsenberg before taking a hiatus (she is pregnant). John Macklin picks her up after the performance to stay at the sugar cane plantation he manages. Glory Bee is awakened by John the next day. Time to pack and move up into the owner’s hunting lodge in the mountains. This book portrays the struggles of soldiers and civilians during the beginning of World War II in the Philippines. To me the best part of the book was the lovely ending. It was so sweet. I am glad that the author did not go into the horrors that the nurses suffered in Bataan and Corregidor. I give After the Fall 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it, but did not love it). I think this books main focus was romance. The instant attraction between two people. It is nicely written, great historical details, and lively characters. If you enjoy historical romance novels, then you will like reading After the Fall. I received a complimentary copy of After the Fall from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.
