Pearl Harbor coincidence

Posted on Dec 4, 2000

Is this a coincidence? I was browsing through Barnesandnoble.com and came across this book: “Pearl Harbor, 1941” by Nancy Holder. It talks about 20-year-old Bekah Martin who completes her nurse’s training in San Francisco, her aunt begs her not to return to her sheltered life on the Hawaiian Islands. Aunt Miriam insists that the Territory of Hawaii will look very different after all she’s seen on the mainland. What her aunt does not realize is that Bekah had come to California not to seek adventure, but refuge from the tragic fire that had claimed the life of David MacLaughlin÷her fiance. Bekah now plans to return home and marry David’s twin brother Ian, who shares David’s last name but none of his independence.
On the journey home she encounters Scott DeAngelo, a brash New Yorker and naval ensign. Scott is pushy, opinionated, and overwhelming, and Bekah steels herself against the undeniable attraction that develops between them. That is, until the morning of December 7, when a surprise attack on American airships takes the island by storm, and Bekah is forced to choose between her sense of responsibility and her love for Scott…

Hmmm…is it me or does this sounds like Kate Beckinsdale’s character in “Pearl Harbor?”
