All My Goodbyes by Jan Cline is a Christian historical novel and the third book in the American Dreams series but can be read as a stand-alone.
The story is set from 1941- 1945 covering the war years. The reader immerses themselves in life on the home front and an airfield in Britain. Whilst this is a fictional tale, it is grounded in fact as the novel follows the experiences of the author’s family. We share the highs and lows, the fears and the loves as a family goes through the war. Fear of de

All My Goodbyes begins in the spring of 1941. Martha Watkins, a young nurse, is focused on her medical career and taking care of the sick. She has no time for a romantic relationship until she meets Clark Jensen who finds a way into her heart. But their happily-ever-after is threatened as the US becomes involved in World War II. Then dreams, fears, and promises clash.

Martha’s greatest fear is losing a loved one, and the fear is so strong, she doesn’t even want to consider having a child

The third book in Jan Cline's American Dream series can be read as a stand-alone novel, since All My Goodbyes shifts the focus to a new set of characters.

Martha is a nurse with a stubborn streak and a temporary assignment she'd rather get out of. Clark is a new recruit who hates needles.

All My Goodbyes follows Martha's journey as a nurse, a daughter, and a friend during the uncertainty of war times. Martha struggles to move beyond long-held fears and to trust the Lord with those she loves.

Amazing Story

I've been impressed with Jan Cline's writing and "All My Goodbyes" didn't disappoint! The fact that this was based off of her mother's life made it even more special.
Jimmy and Clark signed up for the military before the USA entered WWII. They both were stationed at the same base in England not knowing the connection they had, Martha. Clark and Martha were married, Jimmy and Martha were friends from the vineyard where they both lived. I don't want to give anything away, but the fri

All My Goodbyes is Martha Watkin’s story. She lives in fear of losing those she loves. As World War Two looms, how can she let herself love a pilot? Yet, this is the dilemma she faces. If she loves him, what if he doesn’t come home after the war? But what if he does? This is the story of Jan Cline’s heart and she gives us a special extra at the end. As the last book in the American Dream Series, Martha’s story pulls together a powerful saga of American history, shared through the lives of those ...more
