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.
