Experience 20 Romance Stories of Top Gun POWs. This is the first edition, available for early release exclusively at ShopAFA. The book has been signed on the bookplate by the author, Lee Ellis.
Captured by Love shares the real love stories of 20 Vietnam War POWs. Some had wives who started a movement that changed American foreign policy. Others came home and had to start over, while five single men met the loves of their lives. Despite their unique differences, all these couples have been happily married 40 to 65 years.
You’ll be swept up into some extraordinary tales such as:
- Carole boldly gave her husband’s POW-MIA bracelet to John Wayne—he wore it for years!
- Pan Am stewardess Suzy wore a bracelet for POW Bill Bailey, whom she did not know. But she prayed for him daily, and miraculously met and married him when he came home.
- After eight years in prison, one POW said to his wife in his first phone call upon his release, “Hi Jane. It’s Tarzan.”
You will laugh and cry when you learn why. Former POW Lee Ellis and love expert Greg Godek take you on a dramatic journey of faithfulness, passion, excitement, resilience, and practical love lessons from these couples.
