Description
Wartime work draws Giulia DeBartolo out of her close Western Pennsylvania family into a world of intrigue, spies and new friends in Wilmington, North Carolina's shipyard building Liberty ships. Giulia soon discovers supporting the war effort can include fun evenings like dancing with young servicemen at the local USO. It is at one of these dances she meets John O'Shea, an unsuitable suitor according to her old-fashioned parents.

As they grappling with the problems of their own budding relationship, John and Giulia encounter a Nazi spy tasked with blowing up part of the Wilmington shipyard. Saving the shipyard from the spy may prove easier than convincing her parents to let her marry John. Giulia must decide what it means to be a good daughter while still following her own heart.

Excerpt:
Giulia and John burst through the door into the engineering section. Giulia stared at the scene in front of her. Harry was standing by the secure file cabinet, key in hand. A strange sailor, whose uniform seemed big and baggy, was standing next to him. Suddenly she realized that she knew the baggy-pants sailor. Through the ringing in her ears she heard herself call out, "Herb, hey, why are you wearing a sailor uniform?"

John was startled at Giulia's outburst. "Sailor? I don't think you're really a sailor," John cried out as he lunged at Herb.

Herb neatly sidestepped John's attack. John fell face first onto the hard floor and bumped his head on the edge of a desk. He fell, unconscious, to the floor. Then Herb drew a gun out of his waistband, first aimed at Harry, then swung it back toward Giulia, and back again to Harry. "Open that drawer," he ordered Harry.

Giulia was frozen to the spot. She had never seen someone draw a gun on someone else, but her feelings for John gave her the strength to turn to him while Herb seemed to be occupied with Harry's lack of reaction to the command to open the drawer.

John lifted up his head. "Go for help," John mouthed at Giulia. "I'm not leaving you," she mouthed back at him. John struggled silently up to his feet and before Herb realized he was up, lunged at Herb again. In the same moment, Harry jumped at Herb as well, grabbing for the gun. In a few seconds, they had Herb on the floor. Harry kicked the gun away. It skittered across the floor toward Giulia. She did not pick it up, but stepped in front of it to block Herb from reaching for it again.

"Go and get an MP, Giulia," called John. "We are holding him down here."
