Until June

By Barbara M. Britton


When seventeen-year-old seamstress, Josephine Nimetz, agrees to take care of a WWI amputee in a remote Alaskan lodge to escape the influenza of 1918, there’s enough friction to melt the Mendenhall Glacier. Her position is only until June, and it pays well enough to overlook the hardship of managing a rustic home and a shell-shocked veteran, Geoff Chambers.

Geoff makes it clear that he isn’t too fond of the “runt” sent to take care of his needs, nor of her painful mistakes. Dealing with a depressed and addicted amputee, pushes Josephine to the brink of leaving, if not for the money her salary brings.

But Josephine is a perfectionist, determined to get Geoff back on his feet—figuratively. Though, sending a rich, handsome veteran back into society may cost Josephine the man she has grown to love.

Book Takeaway:

Life may be difficult at times, but life is worth living--and it is God who numbers our days.

Why the author wrote this book:

"Until June" is based on a true story of a caregiver who took care of a WWI veteran in a remote Alaskan lodge. I wanted to show no matter how hard life gets, God is in control, and life is worth living. The story shines a light on the hardships of returning from war a changed person.
