Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316758582, Hardcover)At the end of World War II, a young navy pilot named Jack Sweeney fell crazy in love with a California girl named Beebe - just before he was shipped off to the Pacific with his squadron. From stations around the Pacific, he wooed her with letters full of teasing charm, hokey humour and sincere affection. When Jack returned to the States and asked her to marry him, Beebe said yes. Emma Sweeney never knew her father. He was killed in a plane crash just months before she was born and her mother remarried soon after. It was only years later, after her mother's death, that Emma found a package of letters tied in a pink ribbon. In those touching, warm letters she met her father for the first time.
