Gabe, a soldier, due to the war, travels to all kinds of different places. One day while on a ship, he ends up finding about an 18 month old curly haired live baby clinging to her dead mother on the bottom of the ship. Gabe could not bear the thought of taking this baby to an orphanage to live like he did when he was young. He takes this baby home with him and they bond something fierce. As for plans for the future for this cute little baby, he wasn’t sure yet, but they took to each other very strongly. She loves him so much that when he would leave and come back from war, the baby, who he named Ellen, would run to him, wanting him to pick her up and she would just cling to him, never wanting to let go of him! I can just imagine seeing how sweet that is!
The problem, though, is she ends up constantly asking herself the question about whether or not she should have kissed Gabe or not, and if she should or shouldn't marry Anthony, and she kept saying this over and over! It did get rritating! That part kind of drove me crazy, the repetitiveness of asking herself the 'same' question over and over! Perhaps this could have been edited down a bit, but then it would make the book shorter, too.
