Author Jack Conrad publishes The Lady and Her Eagle (published by AuthorHouse), a new fictional account of a World War II love story that spans the Atlantic Ocean and time. In this enduring affair, Army Air Force flying ace Tommy Chandler finds himself caught in the crosshairs of passion when he meets British debutante Lady Caroline Barkley.

“My interest in this book came from my experience in the armed forces,” says Conrad. “There is always beauty that comes from conflict, even if it is a fictional story.”

At the end of Chandler’s tour of duty in Great Britain, the military reassigns him to Wright Patterson Air Base in Dayton, Ohio, where he became a test pilot. While he attends the Army Test Pilot School, Barkley and her father travel from Great Britain to meet Chandler in Ohio. Afterwards, Barkley and Chandler marry and he is transferred to Florida to test fly new jet-powered fighter aircraft. Chandler and Barkley give birth to their first child in Florida.

All was well until Chandler tour of duty in the Korean War. During the conflict, his F-86 was shot down behind enemy lines. He avoided capture and a Turkish patrol rescued him.

The Lady and Her Eagle is a romance novel geared toward readers with a taste for World War II nostalgia and romance.
