Readers witness World War I, the Great Depression and World War II through the eyes of three men in ‘For Love and Honor’
PUEBLO, Colo. – From LeRoy A. Miltner, author of the 2013 novel “Night Songs,” comes a new novel, “For Honor and Love” (published by AuthorHouse), the story of a tested friendship between three unlikely friends and their inner longings to prove themselves.
Set in the posh estate of Evenwood just outside of Philadelphia, “For Honor and Love” introduces readers to three ambitious men living in the first half of the 20th century. Morris Halstead has built a fabric and clothing empire and decides to construct a garden for the community. He employs a German immigrant, who brings his young nephew, Caspar Ritter, to help build the garden.
Caspar and Morris become good friends and are soon joined by Caspar’s old friend, Rolf von Nida, an arrogant son of German nobility. Each of them is tested as World War I erupts and the Great Depression closes businesses across the nation, but it is the rise of the Nazi party in Germany that causes tensions for the men.
“The impact of various national and worldwide conflicts move their lives in many directions, bringing to the surface their inmost values, their weaknesses and strengths and finally the power of love and forgiveness to restore relationships,” explains Miltner.
“For Honor and Love” is a testament to the resilience and strength of human nature as all three men struggle to overcome hardships and fulfill their dreams. Miltner hopes readers reflect on how historical events shaped the lives of his characters.
