Book Description: Set in the late 1950s and early 1960s in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Two Purple Hearts tells a tale of troubled romance and suspense. Vallery is a vivacious young woman who falls in love with Ed, a brilliant MIT student. But their romance is sidetracked by the murder-suicide of her mother and step-father. Vallery takes custody of her mentally disturbed younger half-sister, Jeanne, who resents Ed’s presence in their lives. How far will the disturbed girl go to break up the couple? As Vallery and Ed pursue their love affair, they discover shocking evidence that a deceased World War II veteran was actually the father of them both. Could they really be brother and sister? This tense story comes to a climactic ending as Jeanne’s instability erupts in violence. Two Purple Hearts will leave you on the edge of your seat.
