Love in the Morning Calm by Judythe Morgan

In 1966, while on temporary assignment to South Korea, Green Beret Major Ace Cabot meets Lily Reed, a Department of Army civilian at Eighth Army Headquarters. Ace is a high-potential career officer, who should resist the temptation of any woman, but he can’t ignore his interest in her.

Lily is a firm supporter of the budding women’s lib movement. She enjoys her freedom and new life away from her stifling hometown and preacher daddy. Her plans leave no room for any man. No matter how captivating his smile.

In an uncertain time, in a temporary safe zone, yielding to temptation changes both their lives forever.

When did you write Love in the Morning Calm?

I wrote Love in the Morning Calm as Lily and Alex’s backstory with no intention to publish. I needed the details about how they met and fell in love only to have the Vietnam War interrupt their happily-ever-after in order to write my debut novel, The Pendant’s Promise. (Also at other ebook sellers.)

Many readers had emailed me wanting those same details. That’s when I dug out this manuscript and published it as the prequel. Each book stands alone, but together the two books tell the whole love story of Alex Cabot and Lily Johnson.

What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

The story idea blossomed from my time at Eighth Army in South Korea. The book title is a play on the fact that South Korea is known as the Land of the Morning Calm.

Why do readers buy Love in the Morning Calm?

Many of my readers identify with the Vietnam War era specifically and/or with military life in general. Others enjoy the unique plot and authentic feel to the book. Still others appreciate that it is a wholesome love story.

Amazon reviewers say:
~~“The passion is hot, but the story is clean, …”
~~ “It's heartbreaking and inspiring, warm and relatable all at the same time, especially for those, like me, who weren't born until the 80s and want to understand the Vietnam era better. I do have a military background and loved the description of what that meant during this time period.”
