1 Review
It's April, 1942 and St. Augustine glistens in the warm Florida sun. For the residents of America's oldest city, the ravages of a world war seem far away. Comfortable in their tidy, historic community, increasing tourism seems more important than fighting fascism. But for the town's black residents, the war has brought their situation into sharp contrast -- especially when it comes to UNCLE SAM's -- a place where flag-waving patriotism, big band music and cold beer are blended nightly to conceal a horrible secret.

Local, St. Augustine area historical fiction that I find delightful. The book opens with an interview with an aged singer then travels back to one point pivotal in both her life and in the war around her. German spies and u-boats galore! Entrancing. Read full review
