This was such a good book. I really enjoyed reading about Henry and his relationships with his family and friends. Interesting to learn a little more about the USA during WWW2. Beautifully written and totally non-cheesy. Thanks so much for sending this to me ApoloniaX.

What a beautiful little book this was! This wasn't what I usually choose to read, but I'm really glad that I did. The story drew me in from the start, and what a beautiful story it was. So sweet and bitter. And like bookfrogster said: beautifully written. I wished for this book, hoping to read something different for a change and found a small treasure.
