my take: i gave this to my mother-in-law for Christmas hoping i’d get a chance to read it after she did … and so nice of her to hand it to me when she was done.

my friend julie says what would we do without World War II material for novels? … with all the countries involved and the Holocaust,  it’s a treasure trove for stories and this one is from the perspective of Americans before the American involvement.

part love story, part small town story, part war story … i got lost in this novel. i didn’t see the ending coming … maybe you will ….

my source: recommended by Aunt Harrie

my verdict: worth a read.
