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.
Is it lighter or heavier WWII fare? Something on the level of Guernsey Literary Society would be a good one for the summer…
Lighter fare … closer to GLS, far from Unbroken
This was a great beach read. Short(er) after the hefty Hummingbird's Daughter, easy to follow stories, and strong women. Very enjoyable.
