The Rose of Anzio
by Alexa Kang
Rose of Anzio is an original, published novel series which began on this forum. It is an epic WWII love story that begins in pre-war Chicago, and continues on to Anzio, Italy, where the Allies waged their Southern Campaign. Although not a fanfic, the hero of this story, Anthony Ardley, is inspired by the character Anthony Brown in Candy Candy. The heroine of the story, Tessa Graham, is an original character I created based on my imagination of Candy and Terry’s daughter. I have chosen January 22 as the official release date for Rose of Anzio, Book One ~ Moonlight to commemorate the D-Day anniversary of the Battle of Anzio.
(For Candy Candy fans, I hope you will have fun guessing which characters in Rose of Anzio are inspired by characters in Candy Candy. You will be pleased to know also that Tessa has inherited Terry’s personality!)
