Highway of Heroes: True Patriot Love
1 journaler for this copy...
I found this book in a local charity shop. It had been there for a long time, and this afternoon I bought it.
My husband and I are both grandchildren of WWII vets; there are people in our circle who have served/continue to serve in the armed forces; and we, at one time, planned for our family to be a military family too-- but life throws curveballs, and that's not how things have worked out to date. Regardless, we very much Support Our Troops in this household, and while I'm sure this is going to be a difficult and emotional read for me, I'm equally sure that it will be a worthwhile one.

I was entirely correct about the nature of this read-- difficult, emotional, but definitely worthwhile. There were a few things in this book that particularly struck me. While I am loathe to part with this book in a way, it's also one that I really want to share. One that I want other people to see and read, because it's important. I expect to release it sometime this weekend, somewhere along the Highway of Heroes.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
I left this book at the Newcastle ON Route this evening. It was a quick stop while driving home from an afternoon in Picton. I wanted to leave this book at one of the stops along the Highway of Heroes. I thought about saving it until Remembrance Day or Canada Day, but I decided not to as I think this is a subject we should think about at other times of year as well. I left the book with Sgt. Moose.
If you've found this book, thanks for picking it up and checking out its journal! If you're new to bookcrossing, welcome. We'd love it if you'd stick around with us a while. I really hope that you enjoy both this book and the whole bookcrossing experience!
This book was released as part of the 2018 "52 Towns in 52 Weeks" Release Challenge. Newcastle was Town #35 for me!
