An ancient tale has resurfaced... And its vile curse has claimed the heart of a tranquil Virginia town, morphing it into a malicious world hidden from the rest of society. The residents of Rockdale Valley were confused when waves of quakes hit their town and terrified when reports of missing people and animal attacks suddenly rise. For one former cop, it wasn’t enough to pry her focus away from her own troubles. Living in the outskirts of town just behind the mountains that snugged it, she couldn’t help but keep her focus on the torment she was having to endure each and every night, her chronic nightmares that began just after suffering amnesia from an accident that occurred in the forest of the mountains not too far from where she resided. It was a part of her past she was unable to recall, a part of her past her father refused to discuss. Determined to find answers, Alyssa makes a hasty decision to stop by her parents’ residence before vacationing with friends resulting in her fleeing to Rockdale Valley. Once confined in the shaken town, she has no choice but to face the nightmare that unfolds in front of her as she quickly begins to piece it with her own restless dreams.

It is 1943 in Beaumont, Texas, and Barton Barre’s life has just veered from a carefully planned path to fame and fortune. After a drunken night with friends, the recent college graduate is coerced into volunteering for the army. With fate and perhaps the legacy of the La Barre family curse hovering over him, Barton signs on for officers’ training and begins serving in England. It is not long after D-Day when Barton finds himself in France, the same area his father once fought in during the summer of 1918. Intrigued by the contents of an earlier letter from his father, Bart searches to find the truths behind a family mystery. Meanwhile back home in America, the Barre family and Bart’s pen pal, Elise Boulanger, spends their days fretting about him and attempting to survive the hardships of war rationing. Elise is torn by her devotion for Bart—a man she met only once—and a blossoming new romance. She and the Barre family have no idea that as Bart battles loneliness and worry amid the chaos of war, destiny waits to play a cruel joker card. Legends of War is the second book in the La Barre Family Saga—it is a compelling and heartfelt story of fractured families’ lives both at home in America and on the battlefield in Europe during World War II.
